MSC Preziosa review: was on 7 days, just got back. St Lucia, Barbados, Grenada, Martinique, St Vincent, Trinidad, & got on & off in Guadeloupe. Re ship: super clean, staff always cleaning, really spotless, made everyone getting on ship & before meals use sanitizer, which was an excellent idea. Layout: was travelling with 9 others & everyone got lost at some point. Only decks 7&14 went from end to end. At one point I wandered deck 15 for an hour at night trying to find my cabin. Food: MDR on deck 6. Staff was exceptional. We had a big table of 7 & added 3 more & they accommodated us without complaint. Alex Bolanos, Amin, & Genero were wonderful. I would say the food was good quality & tasty, nicely presented, plentiful but basic- ie meat & potatos, veg & fish, even gluten-free for me, but rather bland. They had vegetarian options but no peanut butter anywhere on the ship! Read Less

My husband and I are from the USA, and boarded the Preziosa in Guadelope. Our taxi dropped us off outside the main gate with all our luggage about 12:15pm, and the guard would not let anyone with luggage (new passengers) enter until 2:15pm, even though on many of our cruise documents it said board at 1pm!! It was very hot, with no water or restrooms. This was the worst part of the trip. The rest made up for this slight inconvenience. We were then finally escorted to the Yacht Club check in, where we were greeted by a friendly staff with cold towels and prosecco. The Yacht Club is definitely worth the splurge. The service, location, rooms and food are all excellent. The majority of the guests do not speak English, luckily most of the staff does. The staff was very accommodating to this, for the international guests. All of the announcements, shows and information was broadcast in at least 4 languages. During the shows it became very tiresome. The shows ranged from very good (My Life in Music and the Mask), to what is this (Woodstock) and horrible (the crew talent show, and Ghostbusters). The Yacht Club areas are beautiful and service always was excellent. We had a very attentive butler, Oliver, who would escort us off the ship to get a taxi, even when not booking though a ship sponsored excursion. We had breakfast most mornings in the 18th floor One Deck, where there was a small buffet and also eggs made to order or omelettes. For lunch we were on shore. For dinners we ate at the Yacht Club restaurant on deck 15 aft, a very long walk from the front of the ship. The maitre d' Pepe was fantastic, and ran the room. We never had any wait for anything, and he would notice immediately if something was not to our linking and correct it. The casino is very small compared to the Seaside or the newer NCL ships, but casino staff friendly. There were no blackjack tables or craps, and only penny machines, and the on board currency is Euros. The main public areas were always very clean, and not much of a wait at any bar for a drink. In the evenings, there a several different bars providing live entertainment with lots of variety and drinks for everyone. There is a bar that makes smokey drinks and molecular cocktails that was a show on its own! For excursions, we booked two with the ship, the St Lucia Catamaran to the Pintons, and in Martinique Rum distillery with lunch at La Bambou. Both were excellent and a lot of fun. We will go on MSC again, but would probably choose one of the newer ships, as we enjoyed the technology upgrades on the Seaside, like the wristbands, app, and location of Yacht Club restaurant.

So before I start I want to acknowledge all the other reviews for MSC and the Orchestra and appreciate that everyones expectations and experiences are individual and I will just be representing ours as 6 family members including Grandparents and an 11 year old. For the past 5 year we had enjoyed a 5 star winter break to Sharm but with this not being an option in 2016 we decided to try a cruise over half term. MSC and the Orchestra provided everything that we were looking for. The ship offers something for all the family and is flexible in terms of dress code, so whilst its lovely to dress up a couple of times for Gala night this wasn't required every night which for us was perfect. Everyone on board works really hard and does their best to ensure all the passengers have a great time. Yes Brtis were definitely in the minority but this didn't bother us and we enjoyed the language exchanges in the lift each day. Food was great, yes the self service is busy at breakfast and lunch but eating outside was a preferable option. We enjoyed the pay for restaurant which was reasonable and they supplied a lovely birthday cake and bottle of bubbles. We thought the food in the sit down option was exceptional. We only had inside cabins and yes they were small but had everything we needed and the delivery of a continental breakfast each morning was lovely. We felt at £500 each for a weeks holiday this cruise was an absolute bargain and fitted in with half term dates visiting some of the most beautiful islands on earth and I have travelled extensively. We are already looking forward to our 2017 cruise to Dubai with MSC. Read Less
