MSC Fantasia Cruise Review by doggo12

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2017
  • Destination: the Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Balcony Stateroom

We were talked into going on this cruise by my sister in law as it seemed to be excellent value and a good way to see some great european sights. we are first time cruisers and were a little apprehensive especially after reading some of the reviews.however after a very smooth and easy embarkation we went to our balcony cabin on deck 11 Meraviglia well appointed and clean.

We dined in the Red Velvet restaurant most nights where our table server Kowmang from Bali kept us amused and looked after us very well indeed. As some reviews have said portions are not huge but after 3 courses you are full and can always make a trip to the Zanzibar buffet for a pizza and beer supper.

As regards the drink packages we just paid as we went and found it reasonable value for money.

The entertainment was fun especially the wonderland and queen tribute shows {Freddie Mercury sounded great with an Italian accent}

Service overall was good and the shore excursions well organized, the few complaints were mainly passengers who didn't listen to the guides and ran late!!

We are beyond the child raising years but from what we saw the kids had a great time especially for halloween.

Disembarkation was again slick and easy,

If you want to go on a very european cruise I reccomend MSC.

Malta (Valletta)

Did my own tour of Valletta and Fort St. Elmo great experience even though I walked my legs off !!

Achilleion Palace

Very crowded and really not very historic. The old Venetian castle in town at the end of the tour was way more interesting.

Knossos Palace

Pouring rain but in a way great because it kept the numbers down, true history and really fascinating.

Acropolis

Really crowded and if you were not 100% fit, quite slippery climbing up the Acropolis.

City Tour

Our first stop was Vatican City on All Saints Day yes it was busy but I got to see the Pope up on his balcony addressing the crowd which more than made up for the crowding. Beggars and touts were every where and did spoil the experience a little.
