Underwhelmed: MSC Fantasia Cruise Review by Threesome cruisers
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Buffet breakfast was the best of all 3 meals. Lunch was fair. Because of the amount of choices, you can find something to fill up on; although some of the dishes were plain weird (like finding hardboiled eggs floating in a thick tumeric sauce and calling it "fried" More egg in tumeric sauce). Fresh fruit (pineapple and melons) were plentiful and great. Water, coffee, and "juice" were free (yeaaa!). I used quotes because those machines were not dispensing juice, but some kind of drink.
Service staff behind the accounting and reception counters were not extremely helpful (not because of any language barrier) and often found them standing around when there were people in line waiting to talk to someone.
Beyond these two areas, everything else met my expectations. The ship is nice and kept clean and sparkling. The crew did an excellent job maintaining it. The cabin staff was very good and attentive. To me, they were the best.
In summary, I'm less enchanted about cruises as I had been. I will probably go on them again, but it will never be on an MSC vessel. Less
