  3. MSC Preziosa
After reading all the reviews I went with an open mind and little expectation Boarding was easy at Southampton and we were onboard by 1 pm Quick lunch in buffet and off we went to explore. Preziosa is a big ship and beautiful.The bars are big and plush. We had an inside on 11 and it was spacious and clean and kept nice every day. Food.......wasn't very good.Buffet a nightmare for breakfast MDR not much better for breakfast either. Shows were ok but the same every night.Bar entertainment was a pianist or a couple singing.....all very average. Ports were miles out so a shuttle charge of 17 a person was expected on some hardly no walk offs Hamburg was closed on Sunday I wouldn't recommend European cities myself again. Days at sea nothing much was put on for entertainment..no films or activities. Bars are very busy at night and drinks very very dear a beer e8 wine e8 bottle water e4 Drink packages a must if you drink. Staff were nice friendly and helpful. MSC are def a 3 star ship Iv done several lines and I'm easily pleased and let a lot go over my head but MSC need to up thier game. It's the little things IMO We were lucky with weather though.
