So what makes MSC Preziosa unique? Plenty is the short answer, but let’s start with some special ingredients aimed at our youngest guests like the one-off wonderland that is Doremi Castle. This spectacular aqua park will keep kids entertained – and thoroughly soaked – for hours. Check out the video for a better idea of what’s on offer but, suffice to say, there’s a battery of water cannons and the suspenseful ‘drenching bucket’ to ensure that good natured water based fun is always on tap(!). Not exclusively for the young, but aimed squarely at the young and adventurous at heart, Vertigo is the longest single-rider water slide afloat. This twisted 120 metre monster takes riders on a thrilling ride from Deck 18 out over the sea and back for happy landings on the decks below. We’re really proud that Vertigo was awarded the ‘Best Innovation’ by Cruise International in 2013. For more serene aquatic pleasures there’s a dreamy ‘infinity’ pool and, just so that the odd spot of inclement weather cannot spoil your fun, there’s even a retractable roof on one of the main pools. For sun-worshippers looking for peace and tranquillity the Top 18 area dedicates premium deck space and stunning sea views to adults who’ll appreciate its dedicated spa service, bar menu and complimentary fruit skewers. Below decks the award-winning MSC Aurea Spa offers beauty and wellness treatments that will sooth away the tensions of everyday life, whilst the high end luxury of MSC Yacht Club’s exclusive suites, butler service, dedicated facilities and private decks remain the toast of luxury cruising. Naturally we could tell you more about the bars and lounges, about the Sports Bar and Diner with its bowling alley and F1 simulator, about the restaurants like Eataly where the best of Italian cuisine can be sampled in a sophisticated, minimalist environment or the exclusive Ristorante Italia, where a seriously upscale menu is available every night. But, with so much to tell you about, we thought we’d leave some things for you to discover yourself as you browse the website and enjoy the videos and plans of MSC Preziosa the magnificent new ship that’s waiting just for you.
