MSC Fantasia Cruise Review by Jean Lawson

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2015
  • Destination: the Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Suite

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 to enforce rules. Kids running wild.. Dining room packed like sardines. Noise unbelievable. Unable to find seating in cafeteria (do I mean canteen). Food, well you can get better at your local pub and more choice. Activities based around pool. but you cant get seats, A lot of forethought should have been applied when ship was being designed.

Charge for excursions astronomical. Shuttle buses. 10 euros for 5 minute ride....it is cheaper to get a taxi.

Staff in dining room were very good as were cabin staff. Our cabin 10006 was fantastic. Queen bed (not two singles) overlooking prow of ship. Amazing space with a walk in wardrobe complete with large chest of draws and shelving. Spotlessly clean (as was rest of ship).

Complaints were dealt with by telling you they would take of it, but this never happened.

There were other things which we were not happy with but I will not bore you further. Enough to say this was our first and last cruise with MSC. Back to RCI or Carnival. May even try P & O. who knows?

Cabin Review

Cabin S3 10006

Fantastic, Loads of space and ginormous space for clothes in a walk in wardrobe. Spotlessly clean. Bathroom had bath and shower although a little small it was adequate
