Finally had time to track down this thread.
Bea ... It was not the Gala night on our last night but the Welcome back Captains Cocktail Party at 7.30 pm where the Dress Code was Gala! the previous night had been the second Gala night.
We had switched to the 6 pm Evening Dinner due to one of the kids falling asleep on the 8.30 pm dinner during the first two nights we went.
Lisa ... I think if you travel with MSC a few times you get used to how they run things and plan accordingly, maybe this is why you though I was being to fair to them in our review. It was odd to find the Buffet with no food on one occasion after 5 pm to 6.30 pm when they advertise that food is available 22 hours a day! it could be that they think everyone eats Pizza between these times!
Cruisingfox 27 ... I think it was the brighter more laid back colour scheme and the atmosphere on Preziosa that made it feel better, there were issues with Divina that left a bitter taste in the mouth that began before the T.A.
In our Divina review we did say that we would likely not sail on another Fantasia class ship but Preziosa has changed that and our upcoming Seaside cruise in December may change it again.
There is a review on the main board of our cruise which does not go into a great deal about the ship because I would just be describing Divina over again.
Arriving in Southampton 3.5 hours late did not help with the Chaos of getting off the ship and the information given out was at times very poor.
