I sailed on the MSC Fantasia with my husband and 3 children ages 7, 9, and 10. My daughter ended up breaking her foot a couple of days before our vacation and ended up using a wheelchair and crutches throughout our cruise, in order to get around. Here is a list of pro and cons
-Kids sail free
-Food is very good - especially in dining room for dinner, lots of kids options as well, if you ask they will do it
-awesome coffee and great bar service
-clean and beautiful ship
-staff members work very hard and are very friendly and polite
-not wheelchair friendly at all - perhaps they need one elevator solely for disabled people or have signs up to encourage people to take the stairs, also when disembarking at cruise ports, its a free for all - no separate lines for wheelchairs or strollers.
-very rude passengers - could not get over this
-wifi is TERRIBLE - paid for a package and never actually got on the internet! Just enjoy an unplugged holiday instead
-cruise port itineraries NOT WHAT THEY DESCRIBE - BEWARE! I can't even begin to write all of the info I have about this! Just do your own thing and research ahead of time!
-kids club is not like a typical kids club like you would get in a Caribbean resort - its a daycare full of behaviour kids...in saying that, the girls that work there do work long, hard hours to supervise other people's out of control children
Great room with a great balcony - quiet except when kids were running up and down the halls all hours of the night
Rude operators cramming people onto the train to the point that it is uncomfortable.View All undefined undefined Reviews
Do this on your own and use the train system to get on and off.
Not even close the the cruise line's description and the bus driver left 16 people behind...wouldn't even wait one minute extra. Do this port on your own!! We missed out on so much.View All undefined undefined Reviews
The highlight of our trip was diving off of the Catamaran and snorkelling. Beautiful scenery and fun boat ride. This one is great for kids who can swim on their own. Food was soggy pre-made sandwiches so bring your own snack.View All 8 Catamaran Tour Reviews
