If one thing’s for sure on MSC Preziosa, it’s that you’ll never find yourself short of entertainment. Kick off the fun with a Sailaway Party led by the onboard dance troupe. Carry on by attending one of the Broadway-style shows at the Platinum Theatre or catching a movie 4D style at the ship’s immersive cinema experience.

While on holiday you may as well try your luck at a game of blackjack or Texas Hold’em at the Millenium Star Casino, but if you decide to cut your losses and look elsewhere for entertainment, regular performances from swing bands and string quartets are a tuneful way to wind down your evening.

Spa and fitness

Once you've indulged your taste buds, move on to your body. The MSC Aurea Spa mingles soul-soothing Balinese massage with tranquilizing water treatments derived from ancient Roman practice, and the result is divine. Plus, enjoy full access to the saunas, Turkish bath, massage room, whirlpool, solarium, thalassotherapy, and relaxation room.


Children can sometimes be hard to keep occupied on holiday, but this won’t be a problem onboard MSC Preziosa. There’s hours of fun on offer at the Doromi Castle aqua park, complete with one of the longest waterslides at sea. For teenagers looking to spend a bit of time away from their parents, there’s a special adult-free zone including a disco and arcade. Elsewhere on the ship the magical infinity pool and whirlpools are a laid-back place to find some peace and quiet. Alternatively, step up your retail therapy with a private shopping experience where you could even choose to have a private jewellery viewing in your very own suite.

Customer reviews for MSC Preziosa

My wife and I were given cabin 8271 on deck 8. The cabin was directly above the Safari Lounge the MSC Preziosa;s night club. The base or bass resonated around the cabin and caused the floor to vibrate. This started at 19:00 hours and continued into early morning. After two days of complaints nothing had been done even though many members of the guest staff had promised action. Eventually after issuing a verbal warning that we intended to disembark at the next port they gave us cabin 10213 on deck 10 to sleep in. I have stuck bigger postage stamps on envelopes than this room. We ended up with 2 cruise cards 1 for each room and this meant that one of us was locked out without a key of own to gain access. We were not told of the problems with cabin 8271 nor could it be determined from their brochure deck plan. It was a shambles and left us with a spoilt holiday and not an iota of compensation in any form.

Beautiful ship spacious cabin with balcony excellent drink and internet packages wonderful staff thoroughly enjoyable trip.

I previously cruised with MSC(Magnifica) last year on a slightly longer cruise but similar itinerary, I mention as MSC seem to have tightened up their drinks packages - now you pay £10 more for half the drinks selection. Although Presioza is a newer ship it felt older than Magnifica - there are no USB sockets on the lamps in the stateroom for example. I do not know if it was because this was a packed (sold out) ship, but I did not feel like there was enough staff to cope. Long waiting times at the restaurants, cabins did not get cleaned as quickly. However it was still a fantastic cruise. The food was good and plentiful, although I griped at the drinks selection it was no problem getting drinks and you could get several at a time. The night club/disco was excellent. The shows were great and we all had a good time, but just slightly disappointed compared to last year. My advice is don't go in the School Holidays if you can help it!
