It was more than we expected. The ship was nice, clean, comfortable. Cabin with balcony was great, spacious, perfect for 2 people, bed was comfortable. Maid service amazing - nice and clean. The staff so polite, greeting every time we are out or in... nice chat and very good English and other languages. - Dining great - buffet lots of choice of food... very tasty and various options, the restaurant Red Velvet, great meal, decent portions just enough for not over eating... (not sure why other people complaining on food here, but for us it was highlight) - entertainment great - haven't had much time to enjoy due to other activities onshore, but it felt like all-inclusive deals and entertainment in Cuba, Mexico etc... 5* resorts - Service - great - depends what you are expecting - have to adapt to other culture - it helped us having European background and knowing several languages. This is what gives a vibe to this cruise line, temper, life, various cultures.... - great itinerary - loved it all - we booked few excursions thru cruiseline and some on our own - did lots of research and prepared ourselves for every single port and place - 3 days in Rome prior to embarkation - was great idea - booked cute place in Monte area... walked everywhere and had few excursions... - Used train from Termini station to go to the port - so easy and cheap 5 euros vs. 150 euros with taxi - friendly people in Rome everyone speaks English, but it's good to know phrases in Italian, words etc it helps getting around - we had it all handy as there was no WiFi available all the time to search on Internet - La Spezia - took excursion to Cinqa Terre - it was Ok, but not what we expected - ended too early in last village, so we abandon the group and did the rest of exploring by ourselves - took train back to Riomaggore (only 4 stations from last village for 4 euros) stayed there whole afternoon swimming, sightseeing etc.) - returned to the port via train only 1 stop... and managed to be ahead of time on the ship - Genova - no need for excursion - did all walking and exploring ourselves - had book ready and information on the city - French Riviera - great excursion, but surprised as we haven't stopped in Nice just drove through, but Monaco was great.. managed to come on time when guards are changing.. had plenty of time on own... same in Monte Carlo and Cannes too... - Barselona - great excursion - booked on our own - had to find a way to come to Gaudi park... but had no problem - Sagrada de Familija great tour and had still few hours to spend on our own... - Palma de Majorca - great place - used public transportation - spend only 1.5 euros for bus ticket to get you to any beaches on the island.... enjoyed whole day there and returned to the main square had tapas and sangria on special for 24.00 euros for 2 people.. - Ajjacio (Corsica) - what cute place - again spent time on one of the coolest beach, enjoyed the sightseeing later on - easy to get oriented - not so many people speaks English, have some knowledge of French - we were ready for it at any of these places - Disembarkation was so smooth and easy - luggage easy found... returned to Rome same way with train....spent another day... touring Vatican and continue our holiday to Croatia... Fantastic experience with MSC and would recommend to anyone. Thank you to the hard working staff - great job Read Less

Myself along with my wife, son and family had a holiday by MSC Fantasia Cruise ship from 11 to 18 March 2017 from Dubai and back to Dubai. This was something tremendous I can imagine. we were booked in Deck 10 Sogno and Deck 5 Fantasia. Once I had a ship sailing from Penang, Malaysia to Madras India in the year 1971 or so by S S Rejula a passenger ship between Madras and Penang. I was lucky enough to sail by this ship's last passenger journey I had been giving some briefing to my wife and children regarding ship sailing etc. But this was something too beyond my thought. Of course I had seen these kind of cruise ship in Dubai, Cochin, Seattle, USA. from outside and far away. What should I say a five star hotel floating on the ocean with all facility a top star hotel can provide without any mistake any way. My profession was in the hospitality Industry and I know well how and what it means to organize and run a star hotel while working as General Manager both in mainland and in beach resorts. Frankly like to say I was looking for some mistakes or to know will it go wrong somewhere. But to my surprise from embarkation till disembarkation so smooth like sailing. Our bags taken care from the beginning as soon as we arrived at the port and the same reached our cabin without any mistake. same thing happened while the end of the cruise. We thought of running away the first day itself by seeing the choice of food on the buffet counter and as well as at the fine dining restaurant. Deck 14 everywhere food, food, food, and food with soup, salad, fruit cut, desert, tea, coffee apart from the main dishes. and the dish served on the restaurant the quantity was too high for we don't take that much. Just because we are Indians love to have spicy food an Indian style but that was lacking. but we can understand Swimming pools everywhere you find unfortunately we don't swim. but enjoyed because others are enjoying a lot in the pool hence we too enjoyed. Spirit Bar here bar, there bar, everywhere bar. Here too we don't drink at all. but still we enjoyed when others are enjoying it a lot. Casino we went through that cabin some were playing may be they were lucky to have some fortune or some may have lost their earning. still this is also a part of the game. Theatre had some marvelous acts and action sound and lighting smart enough and on timing. Well treated for our mind and eye a colorful evenings we enjoyed sitting at the end of the ship where it leaves a spectacles mark on the deep sea where ever MSC Fantasia sails. We also enjoyed sitting and standing at the top of the deck while sailing in the deep sea as well as when it anchors at different harbors. No space is left out without having a touch of their own trade mark of their own style of decorating everywhere with some kind of artistic design and decor on every deck wall roof floor and the same inside the cabin too. Nobody can miss anything all well informed the previous night itself with printed news letter ready for the next day MSC Fantasia you are Fantastic Keep going Thanks Rev. Dr. Antony Walto Read Less
