MSC Fantasia Cruise Review by martysmarty

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2018
  • Destination: the Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Balcony Stateroom

We had been on an MSC cruise previously, and wanted to try the Yacht Club category.

This is really worth the extra cost, as we are an older couple, and do not enjoy all the noise associated with the mainstream cruises.

The only critique for us was the food, which was just "OK". However the serving staff were great in the Yacht Club restaurant, which made up for the food! All drinks including wine and spirits were also included in the price.

We like the low key selling from the shops on board, rather than the U.S. lines that promoted the selling to an intense level.

The cabin category provided a butler, who really looked after us well, as the cabin was cleaned throughout the day, with fresh towels, bottled water etc.

The only staff that were not good at their job was one of the concierge staff, who seemed to be frustrated whenever a question was asked.

Overall, we really enjoyed our week on the ship, and will return.

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom
Cabin B2 15004

Yacht Club suite with balcony.

Really a dressed up mini suite, but very comfortable.

The bed was really comfortable, great memory foam mattress.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Corsica (Ajaccio)

Not to much to see, as the city is small. You could just as well walk through the town without a tour

Historic Tour

So much to see, not enough time to appreciate the city. But worth going on the tour.

Portofino Walking Tour

3 hours of small boat travel with 80 minutes in Portofino makes it seem not worth the journey. I think that a tour of Genoa would be a better alternative.

St. Raphael Walking Tour

St Raphael is a nice small town, but nothing very special. The walk around Cannes was great, but you could do that without a tour.
