Sailing alongside the popular Divina, Fantasia and Splendida ships, MSC Preziosa is yet another fantastic ship in the MSC fleet. Offering the utmost in comfort, service and advanced, environmentally-friendly technology, cruisers can step onboard knowing that they can enjoy the holiday of a lifetime while looking out for the planet for the generations to come. While onboard, guests can benefit from a variety of main restaurants and speciality dining venues, enough bars to head somewhere different every evening, a casino, and a pool deck with waterslides that will keep cruisers of all ages happy. What's more, with cruises on this ship departing from Southampton, you won't even have to board a flight to embark on a voyage that you'll remember for years to come.
MSC Fantasia class ships offer several restaurants, each one boasts a top gastronomic selection thanks to the variety of dishes and the high quality of the foods, from choice Italian meats, scrupulously controlled, to fresh fruit. Every product is fresh and carefully handled, such as bread baked on board with the passion and knowledge of the most distinctive boulangerie. Dishes range from traditional and tasty Mediterranean fare, to the most refined international recipes.
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.
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.
Consider opting for MSC Yacht Club for the ultimate cruising experience. Those who travel at this level will enjoy some amazing advantages such as bespoke cruise excursions, private shopping opportunities, a 24 hour butler and concierge service, and all inclusive food and drink. They will also have access to The One Sun Deck and Top Sail Lounge, in which there are exclusive areas such as a private pool, whirlpools, a stunning restaurant, and lounge with panoramic views.
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!
We had a fabulous med holiday on Preziosa. Really enjoyed the lounges onboard and lovely setting. Very family friendly - kids club was fantastic. Tried the speciality dining and loved it Drinks prices were great value too.
We enjoyed our recent cruise. Sadly we found that the organization ref disembarking at the different ports was lacking in that we were told one particular deck, then no, it is this deck now and so it went at each port of call. Not all crew members seemed to have the correct information. Also we are Diamond tier with RCI International and we understood that MSC had been informed by Iglu and sadly this had not happened. Our loyalty membership had not been confirmed!!
