As in all ships, you will have the night of the Captain so you must bring an elegant outfit and themed evenings like the Italian night or little surprises that may occur at different times of the year.

MSC Preziosa

The MSC Preziosa is a MSC Cruises liner built at the Chantiers de l’Atlantique in Saint-Nazaire belonging to the Fantasia Class. The ship had not been ordered by MSC at first but for a Libyan company that after the fall of the Gaddafi regime, could not finish paying for it. As the construction was already underway, it was proposed to MSC that after reflection agreed to continue the construction but some modifications were made to approach the ship to those that MSC already had in the Fantasia Class. The ship was christened in Genoa on March 23rd, 2013 by Sophia Loren. It has 1751 cabins (100 more than those of the same class), 18 bridges and measures 333 meters long and 37.9 wide.

There is also an important Aqua Park to refresh the passengers and an Eataly restaurant on the adults-only deck and the Tiki-bar for children and teenagers.
