1-10 of 103 MSC Preziosa Cruise Reviews for Singles Cruises to Baltic Sea
Just disembarked following a 7 night northern Europe cruise with my family,
So lets get the first point out the way which is value of the cruise. This was £600 each including 2 x balcony cabins, easy plus drinks package and wifi. This really is exceptional value and so I did expect a few things not to be up to scratch at this price point, but thankfully there were very few compromises.
Chose the cruise for the port stops and that we had never used MSC before. The price was good, and departed from Southampton.
Check in was really smooth and easy, as was the parking before that.
No real greeting as we boarded just given a flyer, not even the daily program.
Cabin was ok, what we expected. A little dusty from the massive over sized air conditioner. Cabin steward didn't ...
Chose this cruise because it was going to Hamburg a destination we had planned to visit before Covid stopped the world!
It was really quite a good experience, the ship, although a bit glitzy for our taste was clean and well run. Dining was well organised, and although I wouldn't describe it as 5 star, was well presented, efficiently served by excellent staff and certainly adequate.
Rio de Janiero to Lisbon
April 8, 2022 16 nights
My first MSC experience was the Opera in 2004. I had a great, 5-day cruise from San Juan to Florida. The crew was accommodating; the cruise director, in particular. He remembered my name after we met.
I’ve been eager to sail MSC again, so when I saw a sailing from Rio to Lisbon, I just had to book it. I loved the ship, enjoyed wonderful ...
This was my first time cruising with MSC. Before the cruise, I was a little bit concern because of some negative reviews.
As far as I understand, the ship was only 50% full. I was told that quite a lot of cancellations because of the change of route. Instead of St Petersburg, we stayed 2 nights in Tallinn.
I had the premium balcony cabin. There's a big sofa which can turn into a double ...
First off, we were told we had a free upgrade. I tried to contact the travel agent to no avail. When we got onto the ship, I asked about the upgrade and had a sign literally pushed into my face which said there are no free cabins. We were told to board the ship at 5.15 pm. We discovered that the ship had been parked at Southampton all day and most people just got on when they felt like it. Like ...
Chose this cruise as it was a good price but with hindsight I would rather miss a cruise and put that money towards another cruise line. Ive been with other cruise lines before and have enjoyed all of them. The problem with MSC is passengers embark at every port which means constant security processes going on and in so many different languages, suitcases and chaos everywhere almost daily, this ...
This was our first cruise with MSC. We chose this cruise because if the itinerary, especially Hamburg and Amsterdam. We really liked the ship its self, which is very grand, and our cabin was quite spacious with a small “Juliet” balcony. However, we were very disappointed with some aspects of the cruise.
The main problem was Amsterdam. When we booked, the ship was going to dock ...
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 ...
We have been on over 60 cruises on at least 8 cruise lines. This is the first time when checking in, you do not produce a credit card for validation. When you get on board there is a machine to validate your Debit/Credit Card. You put in you ships card which was issued when you checked in. You then enter your card. Whichever one you use, they deduct 250Euros from this card. When the cruise ...
