Fantasia is not a Fantasy - it was just 2 Weeks in the Sun aboard a Nice Ship
"BACKGROUND: My wife and I are British and have cruised MSC since 2004. They are not the best and not the worst, but they always represent good value for money. We choose cruises based on 1) Itinerary, 2) Price..."Read More

Review for MSC Fantasia to Europe - Western Mediterranean

MSC allows kids under 18 to travel free. It also offers military discounts as well as other discounts, just ask. We were 3 people, me- the mom, one daughter in college, and one daughter in high school. We went in October when most schools are in session, and passengers their ages, especially the teenager, were few. Someone must have cancelled a vacation because we were able to pick up the ...

After deciding that we would cruise this year for our summer holiday it became apparent that there were only two options and we went for MSC Fantasia based on the itinerary, dates and price (for the price of a balcony on NCL we got a suite on MSC - the space was really important as we were travelling with our 16 year old daughter). We flew to Majorca with Ryanair getting into Palma for lunch ...

We live mainland Spain and wanted to escape our town's 10 days fiesta, so booked from Palma where we flew to, had 4 days there first. Left hotel 1pm on Monday 29 July, and were onboard by 2.30pm, great. Suitcases arrived soon afterwards. Took ages to find cabin though. Unpacked, spent the afternoon exploring and missed dinner so we ate in the buffet. It was OK, heaving, and found a nice ...

MSC Fantasia is a great ship, well maintained, with an average staff. We had a good room steward, but he was just too busy with too much rooms. MSC has not enough staff, and that is why the service is below average, and too slow. That is also why there is a constant line at customer service. The first night there was a huge toilet problem for about 40% of the ship. From 23.00 to 07.00 all ...

Yacht Club - Our first MSC cruise

MSC Yacht Club - Fantasia This review is for YACHT CLUB on the FANTASIA. Different ships and a different “experience” (that is how MSC refers to their different levels of service) may be quite different. Keep in mind our only previous cruising experience has been Concierge Class on the Celebrity Silhouette. Overall: MSC touts Yacht Club as a ship within a ship, and it certainly is that. ...

Although I cruise more than 15 times a year, it is unusual that I took 3 cruises in Europe within the span of 30 days! The reason? I suddenly had some spare time and it is better -valued and trouble-free cruising than travelling on land. The first was a Mediterranean cruise on MSC Fantasia, from Genoa, on 16 September. I did not pay the cheapest but was glad to find a Yacht Club cabin at a ...

We started our cruise in Barselona. Embarkation was fast and comfortable. In fact, embarkations and disemarkations in all ports had been arranged perfect or near to perfect. Our cabin Balcony Fantastica was really fantastic. The cabin had been cleaned 2 times a day, but in a little bit specific way. If we remained some belongings on the bed, after cleaning we found them being scattered even on ...

The reason we chose this cruise was the fact that the company we booked through offered a stay and cruise deal for Rome and a 7 day Med cruise to destination sthat were all new to us. It was also very well priced. We hadn't cruised before so did lots of research into costs etc to ensure that we didn't get any nasty shocks. On which point - we would reccommend that you buy a drink deal in ...
