Sail Date: May 2019
Cabin: Balcony Stateroom

My husband I were on MSC Preziosa for the 11-night Northern Europe cruise (May 26 - June 6). We picked this cruise because of the itinerary which included Hamburg, cities in Scotland and Iceland. The ship interior was beautiful and the public area was clean. This was our first cruise with MSC. We have cruised over 10 times with Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Norwegian. We were disappointed by MSC food quality and overall service. It is unlikely I will book another MSC cruise again.

FOOD

Breakfast -- The breakfast selection was pretty much the same everyday. Coffee is too weak everyday. Pastry quality and selection were good. Plenty of fruit

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom

Cabin B1

We had the Bella level balcony room.

The balcony is small but nice. We were surprised that the cabin does not have a couch and a small table. It did not have any chair except the square ottoman in front of the desk and mirror.

Port Reviews

Isafjord

Not much to see. Drove a long way (1-1/2 hour) to see another waterfall.

Kirkwall

Did not join tour. The city is easy to go around on our own. Public transportation is available to the key places.
