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 ...

First time cruisers

We cruised on the Preziosa early April 2014 embarking in Venice. Embarkation was a very long and unorganised process. Once onboard we were happy to find that our cabin was very spacious and clean. We had a cabin on ...

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 ...

A fabulous first cruise on a fabulous ship

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 ...

Don't go; you have been warned.

If you want your cruise to be noisy, crowded, with poor food and service, this might be the cruise for you ! I can't tell you how disappointed we were on this our first cruise. The ship itself was stunning to look ...

At best, it was average

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 ...

Fantastic ship! Tthat's as good as it got!

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 ...

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 ...

Looks Can be Deceiving

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 ...

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 ...

Disappointing

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! ...

Great time - great value!

I cruised with my 80 year old mother - so mixed generations. The ship is stunning -possibly slightly large for us but still possible to escape the crowds. We did not really use the sundeck and pool area as it was ...

Beautiful ship but some of the staff were so rude

As the title says the ship is beautiful and amazing in its features and presentation. Underneath the woodwork though there were cracks. Negatives first as there aren't many, the buffet is like a rugby pitch at peak ...
