The MSC Preziosa was launched in 2013 as part of the ‘Fantasia’ class of ships and was specifically designed for luxury Mediterranean voyages. Modern and stylish, there is an extensive variety of entertainment and dining options on offer.
There are fourteen decks in total. All cabins and suites have air conditioning for your comfort, with a choice of inside, ocean views, balconies and family or royal suites for those who wish to travel in real style. In addition there are disabled-friendly cabins, usually in inner areas and well planned for accessibility. There are also exclusive suites with butler service and private decks for a luxurious and opulent feel.
Things to do onboard the Preziosa
Other onboard facilities include Deck 18 which offers tranquillity for adults with sun loungers, a spa to cool off, drinks service from the bar and complementary fruit skewers for a little healthy refreshment. As well as visiting the wellness centre during your cruise, why not relax and lap up the serene atmosphere in the infinity pool with its impressive views of the ocean and blue horizon?
One of the ship’s main swimming pools has a retractable roof to cater for occasional inclement days in the early or late seasons. On the other hand, if you are feeling adventurous, you may want to visit the aqua park – entertaining for youngsters, as well as for the youthful.
This attraction also includes ‘Vertigo’ – a spectacular, award winning waterslide – with over a hundred metres of thrills and excitement. Starting high on Deck 18, there is even an exhilarating (though safely enclosed, of course) loop over the sea before returning inside at the end of the ride. This fantastic slide is the longest such ride installation afloat.
