MSC Preziosa Cruise Review by janmel

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2019
  • Destination: the Baltic Sea

We chose this cruise as we wanted to revisit some of the destinations again & the value for money

Muster what a joke this is how you put your lifejacket on

Produce your passports at 7:30 am ??? never went we are on holiday and when we asked others they did not attend either

Register your debit card onboard yourself and if you do not spend minimum then you get back in euros by going to reception night before disembarkation Despite doing this my husband was stopped whilst trying to get off as he was told he had an outstanding bill so had to take all his luggage (self disembark) up or down a floor stand in line to find out what it was & it turned out they had omitted to add 8 euros for a shuttle not our fault but we missed our connection as this took over 1 hour

Out of city terminal in to mayflower never advised so people could rearrange pick ups

Never advised whilst in port where to get off

Food always cold and nothing ever flowed veg never near the main

Options never changed exactly the same everyday

No afternoon teas to speak of scones the size of a 10p hard no real cream and jam in a sachet

Shows not great I have seen more movement in a morgue as the dancers held up a bit of this or that in the background whilst the singers made an attempt at singing and some fella spun around in a large hula hoop and a lady did the splits between two ribbons

Nowhere nearly as good as other cruise lines

Gala night only one show at 7 nothing else all evening

Speciallity dining as we had a drinks package my husband requested a glass of wine with his steak but the steward advised he was unable to provide this but he could have a beer and me my diet coke the same bar that my husband walked ten yards to and got his wine

Staff not the happiest and a smile was hard to find

Cabin steward couldn't tell you who or she was as never saw all week and towels changed infrequently

Gratuities paid on booking but had to have removed as automatically added on to everyone

Shuttle buses charged just to get you off the docks 16 euros each for a six minute bus journey

As going out of Southampton told it had been anglonised to cater for the british the sample I saw was a couple of union jacks in the atrium

Hop on hop off at every port so muster blasted into cabins daily in god knows how many languages

Not much washing of hands done by many

Non English cruisers very rude pushed and shoved whilst others waited to either get food or off the shuttles

Would I cruise MSC again never

I shall just be like the Abba tribute that never turned up

I could carry on but what is the point

would we cruise MSC again a definite no
