Fiz meu terceiro cruzeiro no... by FranRiGa

Sail date: /

Fiz meu terceiro cruzeiro no MSC Preziosa e como nos demais, não tenho nada a reclamar, foi tudo perfeito! O camareiro e o garçom que nos atenderam foram perfeitos! A comida do buffet e do a la carte também estavam ótimas! Tenho vontade de conhecer outros navios e companhias para ter como comparar. No entanto, por hora, estou muito satisfeita com o MSC Preziosa!

This ship is amazing! The... by CruiseShipLuver

Sail date: /

This ship is amazing! The restaurants are good, all though not many of them are complimentary. The buffet offers a good variety and the menu in the main dining room changes daily. There are many bars, my favorite being the diamond bar due to it's location in the ship. The crew was amazingly friendly and they helped us in any way they could. The ship was also easy to navigate through, and our balcony cabin was great: the toilet was the best i've ever seen on a ship. Spacious and felt like a toilet back in home! And lastly, the decor was modern and beautiful.

Never Again by JudyPWR

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

Would not use MSC again, really disappointing. Everyone we spoke to was complaining. I don’t like to spend my holiday that way. I’ve previously been on Royal Caribbean and they’re worlds apart.

Good enough by dougandjoan

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

Typical MSC. Expect less. Get what you expect. The overwhelmingly rude European cruisers were very off putting. But again, typical MSC. Great itinerary made it overall a great cruise.

We didn't board the ship... by whitywoo

Sail date: /

We didn't board the ship with great expectations, just looking forward to getting away. This was due to the price we paid. Despite missing 2 out of the 4 scheduled ports, we loved it. Beautiful ship & excellent value.

We were onboard Preziosa from... by holidaysatsea

Sail date: /

We were onboard Preziosa from Southampton on the 4th of Oct. We had a really great cruise. Our ports were changed due to weather and strikes, but still had a fab time and MSC went above and beyond by providing a free bus and some OBC. Buffet was the best we have seen, but the MDR was a bit hit and miss. Service in the bars and restaurants was very good with staff making an effort to get to know you. You can see our video at: https://youtu.be/3OmNNmwJovQ The full review with pictures is on my blog at: https://holidaysatsea.co.uk/msc-preziosa-ship-review

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

Not so good with the announcement on 5 languages. That s to much. the ship is very nice and the shops have good value of goods. But I was very surprised how good the Yacht club was.

Nice cruise by ladysandra

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)

Loved the ship and crew can't fault but did not like the constant picking up at each port of passengers. Some of us were dressed for evening while others still in traveling cloths so a bit off putting

The ship is absolutely beautiful,... by jason01443

Sail date: /

The ship is absolutely beautiful, easily the best ship I've been on so far. Staff are very friendly and the drinks package is good, it costs £26 per day and you can pretty much drink anything on the ship. The restaurant food was ok, nowhere near as good as p&o or Princess cruises though. The buffet food was a bit boring, same thing everyday and not great quality, my missus compared it to all you can eat package in a hotel in Spain. The entertainment in the theatre was excellent, but only 30 minutes long unfortunately. Always some music around the ship in the night that was a bit hit and miss quality wise. Be aware also that if you are the type of person who likes entertainment through the day (bingo, quizzes etc) not much going on around the ship even on the day at sea. If im honest i would not go back to MSC in a rush, I had a lovely time. It's just that there is a little bit of quality missing when it comes to the food and entertainment.

We have cruised with several... by atmclark

Sail date: /

We have cruised with several cruise companies and have always felt we were so well looked after. We are on this cruise right now and have never encountered staff so unwilling to help you. My husband is disabled and gets extremely stressed if he has to eat on a table with lots of people. Our table request was not passed on, according to the Maitrede, by our travel agent and he was so unwilling and unhelpful we are now forced to eat in the buffet or pay for a meal. The only people we can quite honestly say have given fantastic service is the guys in Eatily. Recommend that restaurant. The weather has not been good and yesterday we were forced to stand on a very windy and wet dock whilst they allowed only four passengers onto the ship at a time as they were taking on new passengers at every port. Finally they allowed us to use the gang plank where the luggage was being put into the ship. When we got up onto the deck, remember it was pouring and freezing, they made us take our coats of on the outside deck to go through a security machine. Ridiculous. We still have five days to go so I hope they can improve on this poor performance.

Sail date: /

Some staff very inhospitable. Specialty restaurants non existent as compared to other cruise lines. Total chaos from checking in till checking out. Ques/lines to get on and off ship and god forbid you are not European and have to get your passport back. Main dining room food and staff excellent, buffet couldn't give a damm if you wanted anything. The worst part of this cruise and probably on any cruise line is how rude and nasty guests are to others

We had a wonderful time... by Landenjones

Sail date: /

We had a wonderful time on our cruise. Preziosa is a gorgeous ship. We sailed in Yacht Club which is worth every penny. The service is divine (Our butler, Harrison was THE BEST! He was also our butler on Divina and it was awesome to see him again.) and the food very good. Plus it is wonderful to have a private enclave to escape from everyone else on the ship. That said, It was a wonderful idea to change the policy to allow Yacht Club members to have free drinks throughout the ship because it got us out of our area and mingling with the other passengers more. We had sailed on Divina in the past and found ourselves pretty much staying in Yacht Club the whole time. I don't think I would do an European cruise again simply because there just isn't enough time in the ports. There is so much to see in Europe and we would have liked to be able to get out of the port areas more. Our itinerary changed a few times because of weather and a strike in Le Havre but there is nothing to be done about that so we didn't care. Better safe than sorry for sure. We will definitely cruise with MSC in the future but probably stick to the Caribbean where we can spend more time at the pool and not worry if we feel like staying on the ship in port. Definitely very excited to see their new and upcoming ships like Meraviglia and Seaside!

The route 'Metropoles des Nordens'... by Earl1609

Sail date: /

The route 'Metropoles des Nordens' is not recommended: all stops in container ports, steep ramps for leaving the ship, extremely long bustours, no access to Amsterdam, but 2 days in Zeebrugge. All in all not amazing. And the disembarkation was poorly organized. If you are older and walking badly, this is an ordeal, and an impertinence. The boat is great, the service and the food are good, the balcony cabins 'Bella' are small and have little cabinets for longer cruises. The glass doors at the shower are dense and so the showering is really fun. All in all not a amazing cruise, but a nice ship. We can not recommend this route, but the stay on the ship was okay. The immigration ceremonie through the British authorities was great, but a disaster in Zeebrugge by the Belgian police. And the MSC shuttles were poorly organized and expensive, as all trips from MSC. The photographers on board were really annoying. No go! So all in all not one of our highlights and not recommended.

Ship z great! Excirsions TOTAL WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY by janbbonthuys

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

Most of the crew friendly although an extreamly rude receptionist. Food - lots of bread if you are a bread eater. Rest... nothing great. Not Disabled friendly - i.e. with excursions they take you in a wheelchair to the bus. On return... NO ASSISTANCE YOU HAVE TO BEG FOR HELP. Excursions- Did not see much. The bus raced through the city and then stopped for three hours between nowhere and nothing

Think twice before going on MSC by mordosky9447361

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

We booked this cruise because of the itneriary, We had always wanted to go to Iceland.  Although we made the best of it I would never book again on MSC!

 

The worst part of this whole cruise was the smoke! Smoking was allowed in the casino which as you might guess is located in the center of the ship and open to lounges and comman areas.  Plus many people smoke in their cabins and the enitre ship smelled of stale smoke.  I really sensitve to smoke and for that reason alone I would not book again on this cruise line. 

 

Secondly the food was bad and got worse throughout the cruise.  I understand the menus are geared toward Europeans but even the Pizza was terrible.  I think Dominos has better pizza.  I would have thought that Italians could handle pizza.  

 

The service was very inconsistent.  Our cabin attendant was great.  The rest of the service was most times terrible.  Many times we would just wait on ourselves.  Other times in the main dinner room during lunch we would just get up and leave because we could not get served.  The service in the evenings was much better.

Captain excellent navigator on fine vessel by stenus

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

Fine and steady vessel. Fine shore excursions. Cobh interesting maritime history

concerning last port of Call for TITANIC in 1912 and the funeral of the people lost in the sinking of the LUSITANIA in 1915. A little confusion about time and meeting point for the excurtions. Vessel steady in rough weather.
