the destination in combination with the price. Our travel agent organised connecting flightswith KLM so everything looks good. The ship is very nice, the crew friendly and the food is good
The main problem is: TOO MANY PEOPLE it cost appr. 3 hours for embarkation waiting and stand in a line.
Waiting and stand in a line for almost everything as: breakfast, shore excursionslunch in the cafetaria, collecting passports. No berths available on deck etc. etc.
Entertainment, except some athletic artists who gives good shows, was the entertainment very poor, 2 singers and a lady singer 1 night a performance, next night same with different costumes 3 night same and more nights the same.
Do we plan a next cruise with MSC Fantasia or her sister ships: NO
if a next cruise ? yes with a smaller ship
Appr. 4000 people on board is to many, we had a cabin with a balcony and that was a mustto have some moments of rest
Cabin nice, clean and good service.
Above we missed the ports of Salvador and Ilhéus which was the most interesting excursions. We walked through the city, saw some Cathedrals and in Ilhéus we have been to the beach. Very nice excursion
Ilha Grande poor waiting and waiting for the tender and the beaches where not special
