MSC Preziosa Reviews

Janet Harold

star rating

All the Fantasia class ships by MSC are stunning and definitely live up to their reputation as “The most beautiful ships in the world” but Preziosa takes this to the very next level. The Swarovski crystal staircases and spectacular atrium at the heart of the ship are truly breathtaking but the new features on this ship means there is such variety that I would happily book a 7 night cruise at sea on this ship.

We had a go on the Vertigo waterslide and it was so much fun, racing through a clear glass area that hangs over the edge of the ship took my breath away and was so much fun! The new Eataly restauarant really shows MSC’s commitment to providing something for everybody on board and we really enjoyed the live cooking stations.

There was lots of activity going on in the aqua park area for a real holiday atmosphere but we enjoyed the views from the infinity pool and the relaxation of it- The fruit kebabs at the Top 18 Solarium for adults only made me feel like I had died and gone to heaven.

The service was amazing and I loved the elegant evenings onboard with by far, the best shows I have seen at Sea.

Such great value for money, I am telling all my friends and family to book MSC- I can’t wait for my next cruise with them!

MSC have a long way to go. Preziosa is a huge vessel and still in good condition. They do keep up with maintenance and were busy daily cleaning and painting. This is sadly where all their effort goes. I'm not one to moan or grumble but will be accurate with what we observed for the last week. The Inca buffet restaurant is hit and miss. You fight for tables, you fight for food, you fight for drinks. The staff are overwhelmed and there are not enough of them to service the area efficiently. It was very rare to see any one of them smile. The main restaurant, in our case the golden lobster, was very intimate. By that I mean packed in. The food however was very poor. Turkey escalope was inedible, as was the braised beef. Mushroom risotto had 1 mushroom in it as did the seafood mix, 1 prawn. The chefs do not check their food. Our rooms were located on the 13th floor and in such are really noisy with people running on deck in the early hours. The balconies were cleaned on the 3rd day but the flooring was never replaced and was left stacked by the patio doors for the rest of the week. I had to call down to reception 5 times over a space of 8 hours to have the mini bar refreshed. We had a premium allegresso package which includes the mini bar but they even locked this on the last night. One thing we were told when booking was the balcony rooms we had have a pullout sofa bed or bunk beds, even reception said this, however guess what, a fixed sofa which I enjoyed sleeping on for 7 nights. The entertainment staff try hard, enough said. The gym is pretty good but had faulty equipment. The f1 simulator broke down. The lifeboat drill changed from port to port depending on where you embarked and if you missed the 5pm time you were asked to return the next night. Let's hope there isn't an issue inbetween

Good things....shower, gym, hot tubs. Not so good... Food, service.

Would I recommend this ship to any one......no. For the same price there are much better ships out there whom give better service and quality of food.

And to top it off I had a really interesting chat with a member of Staff who said she enjoyed being rude to people if they didn't enjoy waiting. MSC you need to train your staff better and improve the quality of your food.
