The ship it's self is emaculate and beautiful but the entertainment is terrible and leaves you bored to tears. The bar staff are extremely rude and it is a chore for them to serve you. The cleaners on the ship are very friendly and ... Read more

We enjoyed the cruise but there were a few bumps in the road. British Airways flight from Gatwick to Genoa mislaid my wife's suitcase containing everything needed for the trip. Customer services aboard the ship showed some initial interest ... Read more

Great ship. Stink of smoke. Smokers in public areas. No crew enforcing rules i.e. no food or drink in theatre, passengers doing just what they pleased. No taking of videos in theatre.... passengers doing this anyway. as I said no one ... Read more

Let me start with the good things. This is a beautiful ship. The public spaces are sleek, the Swarovski crystal staircase is an amazing talking point. The cabins (mine was a balcony on deck 10) were spacious and clean. The bathrooms were ... Read more

We arrived at the ship at the designated boarding time of 2pm and were given a sheet of paper that informed us that we could now board the ship at 11:30am. Fantastic but no-one from MSC contacted me on the cell/mobile phone number I ... Read more

We have just returned from our first cruise with MSC on the Fantasia and although we enjoyed our 11 day excursion, it just didn't come up to the standards we had experienced on Carnival Cruise Ships. Ticketing and Flight connections ... Read more

We found the service comparable to our last cruise with carnival. The decor had more bling, nobody can top that fabulous stairway. We did find it challenging adjusting to continental meals, although Western tastes were catered for it ... Read more
