MSC Preziosa Bookings 2017/2018

The MSC took delivery of the MSC Preziosa at STX France dockyards on the 14th of March 2013. The Preziosa is the latest addition to the Mediterranean Shipping Company's fleet and the MSC Divina's sister ship, part of the amazing Fantasia Class of ships. Originally designed to ferry Muammar Gaddafi and his family around the world, MSC & STX have worked their magic and turned it into a graceful, floating dream. The Preziosa has a children's water park called Doremi Castle and a waterslide which is the longest on any cruise ship.

We are now taking cruise bookings for the 2017 season for the MSC Preziosa. You can check availability by filling in the form below (email cruises@southafrica.to if you're experiencing difficulties).

Dictators' Paradise, Phoenicia

I read that the Gaddafi family got annoyed by the fact that they couldn't just charter a cruise ship whenever they wanted to. Apparently they struggled with the concept of people actually booking and paying for their cruises up to a year in advance. Spontaneity must run thick in their family's veins. Hannibal Gaddafi then decided that they simply must have their own cruise ship and decided to buy one. He called it Phoenicia and told the engineers that the main attraction onboard will be a massive shark tank with 6 sharks inside. Wow. I never realised that dictators cared so much about sharks; then again, they are actually very similar, aren't they. Cold blooded, ruthless...anyway, the plans for their cruise ship came to an abrupt end when their rule was overthrown in June 2011.
