WE sailed with MSC for the first time in JULY 2012 we sailed on the OPERA.It was our 40th anniversary .we had a fantastic time .Bitten by the cruise bug as we were warned may happen ,we were so impressed with MSC. we booked our next cruise but a bit worried if we expected too much and would be dissapointed after having such a good holiday on the OPERA. The fantasia was all we could wish for it was amazing what a beautiful ship !!!!!! Spotlessly clean ,bright ,friendly , food was delicious and the service was 2nd to non we have travelled extensively and never really fancied a cruise , but now wouldnt do any thing else and would go with MSC would be apprehensive of another cruise line .
Our cabin was a balcony suite it was very spacious and was beautifully furnished the bedding was spotless and changed every day the towels were changed twice a day.we paid less for our cruises than most other of our holidays. It is an Italian company and very cosmopolitan which added to our experience. If we had taken notice of many of the reviews we would never have booked with MSC .What more can i say some people are so hard to please . Yes everything is said in 5 languages but thats no problem. The theatre was awesome as were the shows. We can not find a single thing to give negative review on, embarkation was allways quck and smooth. We met some lovely people and have just booked the FANTASIA for jan 2016 with the couples we met onboard.They had never sailed with MSC but had sailed with the best lines in all they have done 37 cruises. and were so impressed with MSC if thats not impressive i dont know what is . We only got home 16th march this year and booked allready cant wait.The one thing i would recomend is the drinks package it is well worth it , i wouldnt say we were big drinkers and we saved a small fortune (HIC) What an awesome experience of a life of luxury it was such a good company everything is no trouble and the staff where brilliant .
