MSC Preziosa Will Feature Brand New Shops

Shopping lovers take note: MSC Cruises’ latest flagship MSC Preziosa is getting ready for her grand debut in Genoa, Italy, on 23 March 2013, and looks set to take the MSC fleet’s impressive onboard shopping experience to glittering new heights as soon as she sets sail.

As well as all the regular Fantasia class favorites, including the duty free Mini Mall, designer watch and sunglasses shop l’Angolo dell’Oggetto and La Boutique for men’s, women’s and children’s fashions, the addition of brand new perfumery and cosmetics shop, La Profumeria, and two jewelry shops instead of one – Il Gioiello, now dedicated exclusively to high jewelry, and the all new Fashion Bijoux for costume jewelry – are sure to set shoppers’ pulses racing.

In prime space on deck 6, in the area used as the cigar lounge on board sister ship MSC Divina, MSC Preziosa now boasts the exclusive 85 square meter perfumery, La Profumeria.

In this stunning light, modern space, designed in ivory and gold and with just a hint of art deco, travelers can browse the top brand perfumes, make-up and skin care products on offer, from Chanel to Dior to Lancôme.

Il Gioiello and Fashion Bijoux

The area on deck 7 used as a perfumery and make-up shop on board previous Fantasia class vessels has now been turned into the all new Fashion Bijoux, a costume jewelry shop with spectacular Swarovski and Pandora Moments display corners, as well as various other popular brands including Antica Murrina Veneziana and Majorica.

The popular Il Gioiello will now be dedicated entirely to high jewelry and watches, with luxury brands including Bulgari and Montblanc.

MSC Preziosa will boast a total of 11 shops: the duty free Mini Mall, the watch and sunglasses shop L’Angolo dell’Oggetto, La Boutique, the Pool Shop, the MSC Logo Shop, La Caramella candy shop, Fashion Bijoux, La Profumeria, Il Gioiello, the Accessories Shop for bags, belts and leather goods and the MSC Photo Shop.

With this impressive variety of boutiques boasting a great selection of top brands at duty free prices, plus a team of friendly staff available to help travelers find the perfect treat, there’s no doubt that MSC Preziosa offers one of the best shopping experiences at sea.
