Cruising for beginners

Cruising for beginners

The thing about cruising on a vast ship like the MSC Preziosa is that it offers something for everyone. I’m on board the Preziosa right now with my fifteen year-old daughter. After she finished her GCSEs last week we wanted to go on a relaxing trip somewhere warm. Neither of us had been on a cruise before but a seven-day MSC cruise of the Eastern Mediterranean sounded ideal for us. (Before we left I asked some other bloggers who are experienced cruisers for their advice – here are their tips). We’re travelling as guests of MSC and now that we’ve got the hang of life on board I think that this trip is perfect for us.

Finding our way around

Launched in 2013 the MSC Preziosa is enormous. I’m sure it’s bigger than Monte Carlo. It has 18 decks, four swimming pools and 22 bars and is one of the largest cruise ships in the world. The Preziosa can carry up to 4251 passengers and is full for our cruise with more than 40 different nationalities on board. There are also 1,301 crew members and they’re from all over the place.
