Cruising with Silvio Berlusconi!!!

Sail Date: June 2009
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Barcelona

As a first time cruising family,we didn't know what to expect read everything we could find about Fantasia.Must admit that we sometimes did hesitate this the best of ideas?
But we are all glad that we didn't´t cancel our trip.It was mostly a great experience.
We=two adult´s in the 40´s and our 13 year old daughter,from Sweden

Embarkation: Easy as anything we were able to embark att 11pm,even though our tickets said not until 12 pm.No que at all.Everything went really smooth.

Cabin:We ha a outsidecabin on Fantasia deck, with a big window,had some regrets about not getting a balcony cabin,but when we asked the agency about a balcony cabin we where told that they were sold out.The cabin was more than ok,big enough for the three of us.One king size bed and an extra hanging from the wall. The cabin was cleaned twice everyday.The cleaning lady did a great job,for a lousy pay....2 euro/our and 11 ours working shifts!!

Food: Breakfast,everything you could More eat,bread,yoghurt,cereals,scrambled egg,bacon,etc nice coffee btw.
Lunch, you could choose buffet or a la carte,we tried both.The food at the buffet was more than ok,but very noise and crowded,lot´s of people.The a la carte restaurant, The Red velvet,was a better choice.
Dinner,attentive waiters,a lot to choose from and often very tasty.
Nothing negative about the food then ? Yes,you eat too much,we gained some extra kilos........have to start exercise.

Breakfast 07.00-10.00 pm
Lunch 12.00-16.00 pm in the buffet restaurant
Lunch 12.00-14.00 pm in the ordinary restaurants
Dinner 19.00 am or 21.30 pm


Entertainment:every night it was a show in the theater entertaining,but sometimes it was a bit boring.Some acts tends to be too long.

Pool areas:nice but too croweded,to much noise,and the music was far to loud.Remeber that kids under 18 travel on a discount!!!! That means a lot of kids.

So what did we think?
A nice cruise,but very noicie and crowded.Will we go again,yes,but on a smaller ship. BTW smooking is not a problem!! Less
