The MSC Preziosa is one of 4 “Fantasia” class ships in the MSC Cruise Fleet. It started it’s life as a ship ordered by the Gadaffi Regime in Libya.The original vision for the ship was to include a huge shark aquarium and a host of other unusual features. After the revolution the regime defaulted on payments. MSC Cruises bought the hull, as it was similar to their “Fantasia” Design and created the MSC Preziosa.
The ship holds 3,500 passengers and around 1,300 crew. It is a modern looking ship that despite its size has a sleek looking style – unlike some modern cruise ships that tend to look like chunky apartment blocks.
