I also LOVE the "PREZIOSA"!

After sailing on the DIVINA twice, and having a fantastic time on board in both occasions, we decided we wanted to take another trip on board another MSC Cruise ship.  We learned that the PREZIOSA, the DIVINA's sister vessel and one year "younger", goes around the Western Mediterranean in the summer time, so we booked another AMAZING MSC trip on the PREZIOSA out of Rome (Civitaveccia) on June.   

Me and my family have cruised to Brazil, in the Caribbean, and now in this great ship in the Mediterranean!  Everything is almost the same as in the DIVINA, as it is its twin-sister ship, so we "felt at home".  We also loved this ship and its crew - attentive and responsive ALL THE TIME.  The cabins with balconies at the back of the ship are very big and comfortable, and the balconies are HUGE!  You can fit 2 lounge chairs to sunbathe as well, in addition to the 2 chairs and table provided in the balconies.  This was perfect for us, because the view from the back of the ship has NO COMPARISON to the view from the other cabins on the sides of the ship (which are great also).

The food on board IS EXCELLENT too, with more European flavors in the menus, and great quality and variety as well, day in and day out!  AND, the specialty restaurants are also very, very good, including "the Pizzeria" on the 7th floor (it has its own wood-fired pizza oven), it is also AMAZING!  you have to try it, THE BEST PIZZA ever! (MSC should start a Pizza chain in Italy..... the best pizza I've ever eaten in Europe).


Having cruised on the DIVINA twice, and this time on board the PREZIOSA, MSC did not let us down.... Without a doubt, we will continue traveling with them into the future.  QUALITY and GREAT SERVICE, have been the norm on board these 2 cruise ships.  In this third cruise with MSC, our experience with the PREZIOSA was AMAZING as well.  


MSC has done a fantastic job with these 2 ships, their largest and newest ships in their fleet; we will cruise with them AGAIN and AGAIN.  The "european" culture in the PREZIOSA, and also in the DIVINA, is way above other American cruise lines experience; this european cruising culture and great Italian service is way above other cruise lines...... comparable to Celebrity and just below Cunard, but excellent overall.


Ah, and don't forget to go to the Theater Show, every night.  The shows are spectacular, as good as in the DIVINA.  The shows are also in par to Broadway shows.  I think no other cruise line has the shows that the PREZIOSA, and the DIVINA, have on board, simply AMAZING!

This type of Balcony cabin, has a HUGE balcony, and an AMAZING view from the back of the ship, when cruising and on while docked in the different ports of call.

Ship Tip

DON'T MISS the shows at the Theater every night! AMAZING shows!
And, don't miss the pizzas at "The Pizzeria" on the 7th Floor, the BEST PIZZAS ever!
