We just came back from a cruise Venice-Bari-Katakolon-Izmir-Istanbul-Dubrovnik-Venice. We arrived at the checkin in Venice at 11u30, it took about 75' minutes in total before we drank our firts cocktail. You have to stand right about an hour, it would have to be possible to fix this so the people don't have to wait in a line, but with a ticket system. Once we get on board of the ship, and after ...

I will be as sort and factual as possible. The room was lovely, couldn't fault it, ship was very plush, here end the good points. Added £100 to the room for gratuities, had to fight with the reception staff to get it removed, they acted like they were doing me a favour, pay the staff a living wage I say. Trips desk had no other information than wanted to sell their own really expensive tours. ...

Oh my goodness, we have just returned from a fantastic holiday with MSC on the Preziosa and I would certainly cruise with them again, I can’t understand why there are so many bad reviews on here? The ship was immaculate, it gleamed everywhere. The staff were friendly and ready to help whenever they could, yes sometimes there was a wait for bar service, but we were on holiday and in no rush, so we ...

I am reviewing on behalf of two couples that sailed on the MSC Preziosa in the final week of October in 2014. We all thoroughly enjoyed our first cruise-liner experience, are hooked and looking forward to further cruises. As you will see from our ratings, there were only two components to the cruise that we found could do with improvement; the embarkation process was poorly organised, slow, ...

The MSC Preziosa is a beautiful ship! It's new and pretty. We had a balcony and it was spacious and very well thought out with enough cabinets, shelves and drawers to be able to place all your personal items. Don't like vacationing out of a suitcase so this was a big plus. The cabins are non-smoking but they don't really re-enforce it so you have people smoking on their balconies and in their ...

Four of us went on a cruise from Venice through the Adriatic and Agean sea's on the Preziosa. After having been on the Armonia previously we thought why not try MSC again. There are good points to mention about this ship such as the cleanliness and the cabins being well presented and clean. The itinerary was also very good and if you wanted there was plenty of time ashore to explore the various ...

I have just returned from a 7 day cruise of the Eastern Mediterranean on board the Presziosa. It was the second leg of a back to back cruise, the first week being on the Musica - and this may have been the spoiler! My experience on the Musica was great and I was expecting more of the same on the Presziosa but, sadly, it was not to be. I found the ship too big and way too crowded. The service was ...

Great cruise on MSC Preziosa

After an uneventful flight, we arrived in Venice and sought our MSC sign in the Arrivals Hall. There was every other cruise line and other companies but no sign of MSC. Eventually, we found our contact and she was behind the others but the sign was down as she was checking names off her list. We were directed down the hall, past the coffee stand and out to the MSC office outside. After checking in ...

We have cruised on numerous occasions with various cruise companies so this time we thought that we would try MSC. The ship was very elegant, by far the nicest vessel we have ever cruised on. However, the amazing experience stopped there, the food was absolutely dreadful !. It was either over salted or had the life cooked out of it. Any meat served were pitiful and baked or fried beyond ...

Yacht Club; worth it? We say yes

As my husband was on his first ever cruise, I decided to ruin him forever by booking us into the Yacht Club. I know this is going to come back and haunt me on our annual sailing on the Oscar Wilde from Rosslare to Roscoff! Flights and transfers were included in our package but one thing that bugged me was the inability to check ourselves in online and select our seats with Aer Lingus (this is ...
