Sail Date: May 2017
Cabin: Balcony Stateroom

Good value for money for a 7day cruise to the Baltic with excellant itinerary. The Fantasia was a lovely ship , with lovely decor with the Italian touch. Due to the low temperatures on deck, most passengers we're inside and it appeared very crowded on sea days.

The theatre was large to accommodate nearly 4000 passengers . The shows were very average with most acts being mimed . There were only two proper singers who took the main roles on every show each night.The scenes were never changed.

Food was very nice and tasty and plenty. However, the hard sell of special food for gala nights , was very annoying. In fact the hard sell on drinks packages was never ending. No water was offered at the dining table. Water had to be purchased every night.

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom

Cabin B1

Excellant cabin with a balcony. The largest cabin we have experienced.large settee too.

No water or coffee/ tea in cabin.

Port Reviews

Copenhagen

Nearly all the shop's and restaurants in Copenhagen, did not take euros.

They only accepted danish kroner.

If you want to see the mermaid, it's near the port . No need to take the pricey shuttle bus into town. It's a long walk from town to the mermaid

Stockholm

Another pricey shuttle bus into town before a walk into the old town.

Pretty but expensive for tourists.

Many of the restaurants and shop's only accepted Swedish kroner and would not accept Euros.

Accepted one Euro for the use of the toilets though.

Not worth a return visit

Tallinn

Walking distance from the port into Tallinn.

Very pretty place with its cobblestones streets.

The exchange rate has made even a cup of coffee or a beer quite pricey,
