Une bulle de rêve by papayef

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: MSC Preziosa / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

Une croisière c'est ouvrir un espace dans le monde, dans le temps, dans l'espace, dans l'océan et se laisser porter par le temps rythmé par les vagues, le vent et les sens.

First cruise with MSC by TampAGS

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Preziosa

This cruise was unusual in that so many different languages were spoken on board. Announcements were made in French, English, Italian, German, Spanish, and Portuguese. It was kind of like a floating tower of Babel. There are lots of things MSC could improve on. The itinerary, however, was fantastic! All in all, it made for a very memorable honeymoon.

We looked forward to this trip for a long time. Ignoring the bad reviews as usually there are some. Though we enjoyed our vacation because of the itinerary-I will probably NOT use MSC again. The ship was beautiful and clean but the crew was the issue. by cw40home

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: MSC Preziosa

The crew was not helpful almost to the point of being rude. Very unorganized and most were not able to answer basic questions. Food on buffet was good but sometimes mislabeled so choose carefully. Jogging track is NOT a jogging track! It goes through a bar, tables and chairs and the smoking area. Not separate at all. The casino is very small We are not new cruisers. My 11th and my sons 17th and we have enjoyed every one of them. This one was disappointing because of the crew and I don’t think I would choose MSC again as there are so many other options that we have had good experiences on

Fabulous first time cruise by Spike3529

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Preziosa / Destination: Transatlantic

Relaxing and enjoyable cruise. This is a transition cruise and we were lucky with the weather and that our cabin was on the sunny side.

Disappointing cruise line, some ports great, Casablanca to be avoided at all cost by benb24

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: MSC Preziosa / Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean

The cruise itself was sub par, most of the ports of call were great. Casablanca is ridiculously terrible, and Lisbon is awesome. As far as MSC is concerned, if you're used to the entertainment of Carnival you will be disappointed. If you're used to good food and included service of a Royal Caribbean you will be disappointed. The food was poor, everything you might want to do on-board costs extra, and apparently you have to be a black card member in order to receive wash cloths. This will be our first and last MSC cruise.

Great trip with a problem by cruisealaska

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: MSC Preziosa / Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean

Booked an excursion which I thought was coming from the ship when we did it on line. Cruiseline.com/Shipmate company. When we go to Lisbon the time we were supposed to meet them was 20 minutes away. The ship could not let ppl off until okayed and it made us late. Contacted the company but they said we had to cancel 24 prior. How were we 2 know 24 hours prior they wouldnt let us off the ship. Lost $ 100.00, the cost of the excursion. If we had taken the 2nd excursion offered we would not have gotten back to the ship on time.

Absolutely the worse vacation! 👎🏽 by triplej111

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Preziosa / Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean

Avoid this cruise line like the plague. Do not book anyone with them, especially someone who has travel experience. Rude, uninformed staff, terrible food packages! JUST AVOID!!

Excellent but not really by cmanlangit

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Preziosa / Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean

If you are an traditional cruise passenger and like glamour and class this is the one for you. If you are the new generation of travelers like us, you might want to read more reviews before going here.

Never again on MSC by Ripleyman

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: MSC Preziosa / Destination: Europe - Northern Europe

From the beginning when they changed the itinerary on us the cruise was a disaster. I have cruised 35+ times on 5 other cruise lines and have never had as horrible of an experience. I even went through a hurricane on a ship that wasn’t as bad as this. The food was tasteless boring and in some cases awful tasting. Their steakhouse was good but not exceptional. Their excursions were the worst ever. Poor English speaking and boring. They try to nickel and dime you to death. Only drink available for dinner was water. Ever other cruise ship offered tea and or coffee without charge. We boarded in England - an English speaking country- but got to hear every announcement in 6 different languages. I’m telling every one I know, and strangers I meet, to stay away from MSC. by the way, I visited with at least 10 other guests on the ship who had the same opinions.

Seen lots cruise by hall5315

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

The cruise was affordable, we found the ship too large as the noise level in the buffet areas were really noisy. The entertainment & food were good.

Short Trip on a Great Boat by Tanissteel

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Preziosa / Destination: Europe - Northern Europe

This is a beautiful ship the public areas are just stunning Embarkation: Was easy and quite quick with the usual queues. A few more desks open would have made the process of little quicker. Once on the ship you were greeted by the usual array of special offers for the spas drinks and restaurants. Our cabin was ready so we headed down the drop cases. Followed by a pleasant drink in a bar and then sail Away. Having been on a few MSC ships this one is the newest there was plenty of space the pools and Jacuzzis never seem very busy. The ship itself is very clean we went into all the bars before settling and the pizza bar where they serve beer. Service was always good too long for a refill. Dining was fixed seating only at either 6:30 or 8:30 pm our dining room was over two levels service was always good the food was as good as we had anywhere *TIP* get to know your waiters ours exceptional in their attention to detail. Nothing is ever too much trouble with attention to customer service. There's a lot of talk about small portions we eat in the dining room to stop from over eating as is sometimes the case if we use the buffet, with restaurant dining a just order second meal be it a starter, main or sweet we on occasion order a second something from the menu to share there was never an issue. The talk of no tea and coffee following a meal all you have to do is request this and they will happily bring it and we have on occasion when in conversation with fellow diners. Beautiful theatre, the best I've seen. You can see the stage from wherever you are. Productions were average the shows were quite short but filled with entertainment the storylines were non-existent so as previously said by others, the shows were very random an introduction of a start middle and end would make these shows flow, and enhance enjoyment. Talking about shows there was a major shift away from the opera singing ballroom dancing kind of shows we have seen on previous MSC ships the Swiss magician was very good the fact all the acts are incorporated into the show I thought was a nice touch. The cabin is quite standard for MSC ships we had a balcony cabin and after a just a few minutes you thought you'd been there for a long time almost like coming home. The room decor is rich and bright, that gives the room an expensive feel as does the entire decor on this ship. The TV is on the small side with a smart remote control to view ships account. There are 5 channels in German, 4 channels in Italian, one channel only for English, BBC world news. They advertise films , most you will have already seen and want to charge€7.50 to watch! *TIP* I always bring a few films and music on a flash drive a must if you have children as there is no TV at all for them. Tthe addition of a Kettle and Yorkshire tea and coffee was a welcome plus. We brought milk down with us from the bar to use. Sockets: there are 2 American flag pin and 2 European round pin on desk panel. *TIP* I always use is to bring along an adaptor to make use the power socket by the bed to charge phones they are European round pin type as a rule. The Bathroom the same as most cruise ships the addition of a glass door on the shower was greatly appreciated anybody who's had to put up with the curtains will know how difficult it is larger people have on most cruise ships All in all we had no problem with the ship or the service on board. My only running on the whole voyage was the photograph desk where they seem to work for themselves rather than the cruise line. Customer service seems to be at the bottom of their list, top of the list seems to be selling you overpriced photographs. The sooner MSC change the digital photograph sales the better across its entire fleet. All in all quite a good voyage. The people travelling to Europe I'm thinking of using a European cruise Line just remember that they are actually tailored to Europeans especially Italians and Germans. Who have very different ideas on queuing and pushing into Lines? Just remember when in Rome! Which is why we have started to do the same, or we worry about it less!. My *TIP* as always with getting good service treat the staff well and don't forget to add a tip where deserved, always works well for me to the point even returning to a ship I have met up with servicer that I have previously met and treated well on other ships and been given the first class service by not only them but their fellow servicer. Final words the ship is a beautiful ship with friendly staff and good service.

Disasterous. Do not travel with MSC by cpo343

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Preziosa / Destination: Europe - Western Europe

On re joing the ship from our first stop a crew member lifted a bag from my wife w ho was in a wheelchair and cought her wrist which was badly strained. On another occasion when the gangway was unsuitable for a wheelchair my wife was thrown out of her chair and landed on the deck. Both times she ended up in the medical centre for xrays and bandages. No offer of compensation was made nor any concern expressed. .
