  3. MSC Fantasia
we shared a mid ship cabin with balcony which was very comfortable , having a balcony was a big plus because the pool areas were always overcrowded with parents and their kids. the ship was spotless, the food was excellent in the restaurants and good in the Buffet given the numbers they cater for all day.The staff were in the main a credit to MSC with one exception we found the staff at reception very rude and abrupt. As smokers we were delighted to discover the Cigar lounge where like minded people could relax and have a drink and a smoke in comfort, the staff here Amadi ,Eddie and Abdul were legends for putting up with us ! There was entertainment each evening in the theatre but we didn't avail of it and there was always lovely music playing in the foyer pre dinner there were some issues with queues to get back onto the boat after excursions and organization of these could be better. Yes we would definitely go again

Excellent holiday, fair value and comfort given that there were 3,500 on board
