  3. MSC Preziosa
This cruise was good because of the itinerary of stopping at Caribbean islands everyday and had a good mix of Europeans and some Americans on board; not just single groups of British like on P&O or loud Americans as on Carnival. The ship is tastefully finished and kept super clean. The standard of food in the buffet was excellent and well laid out and overall the staff on the ship were courteous and provided very good service. In my opinion there seemed to be a lack of overall activities on the ship as compared to a P&O ship but I would think this is due to the multiple languages on board - English, French, Italian, German, etc - for example it would be difficult to have a comedy act and provide it in 5 languages; so overall understandable why less activities but there are plenty of bars with music to venture into. There was a good choice of shore excursions which I think were much the same price range as provided on other cruise lines.

Many Caribbean Islands visited

Cabin Review

Yacht Club Deluxe Suite
Cabin YC1 16029
The Cabin was nicely finished inside and kept clean and well stocked by the butler/cleaner.
The only complaint would be the lack of English speaking channels as compared to amount of French/German channels. I would assume the TV service is provided by a Euro satellite provider and is much the same as TV services provided in hotels in Germany, France, Italy and Spain.
