MSC Fantasia Review… A huge disconnect
"I don’t see us booking any more itineraries on this ship, but because the food and the entertainment is so good, we would consider booking MSC again in the future as long as it was on a longer itinerary (to eliminate the large groups of people travelling together), and on a ship that enforced a no-smoking policy.One big difference between a lot of the ships that we have been on, and the MSC Fantasia, is that they have people embarking and disembarking at every single port...."Read More

We enjoyed the cruise and everything that went with it. We were not very impressed with the on-board shows. We expected more from a Mediterranean cruise. On previous local water (SA) cruises the shows where very entertaining. As one can expect from a mainstream cruise, there were a lot of passengers which made meal times a nightmare. Doesn't matter if you go earlier or later. I guess one should ...

I booked this shorter Med cruise, to check if standards and general improvement where high on MSC wish list, to my dismay they were not. After a shambolic trip on the MSC Opera from Abu Dhabi to Genoa in may 2023, I tested the so called high calibre of service and quality which the company was aiming for, unfortunately all fallen by the wayside. The embarkation process was swift and very quick, ...

I will start by saying I do disagree with the comments about the staff from other reviews they were always friendly and smiled. We were in a balcony room on the 8th deck right above the manhatten club this place is so noisy at night, I know I should have probably checked this before I booked but it was worse than I expected. Food wise Buffet- just meh always busy Food was usually ...

I choose this cruise because it was affordable but the food wasn't impressive nor was the service at the Wave Restaurant. I did enjoy the entertainment which was great! However when you cruise the highlight is alway the quality of your food. I did book one of the specialty restaurants which was hibachi style that was quite tasty & entertaining as well. I booked a balcony cabin but it ...

We went on this as a family cruise. all adults It was the worst cruise that I have ever been on and I have been on a few. The people were not nice. The bartenders were not nice no one hardly ever smiled. The food was awful.., not a lot of entertainment, I will never cruise on MSC again , it’s not often that you can just go to Europe. We thought we were going to have a great time and no one on the ...

We (family of 3 adults) just disembarked from our MSC Fantasia cruise (a mediterranean cruise); it was our first time with this company. For more than 20 years, we have done several cruises throughout South and North America, as well as Mediterranean cruises. We have used different companies and ships, but none of them were so consistent in bringing 100% negative elements to the cruises’ ...

We sold our house in Canada so that we could travel the world by cruise ships. Our intention is that we could see the world, and report to our followers about the great itineraries, and different ships that are available to travel the world. This blog is about the MSC Fantasia. We boarded it in mid October, 2023 in Barcelona. We will briefly cover what we loved, and what we didn’t love, and ...

Charming Ship - Excellent Value

Fantasia Charming Ship - Great Price Firstly, let me get the money issue out of the way. Four days for a family of four for just £550. Including Marseille, Barcelona, Genoa and a sea day was excellent value. A charming ship, but not many things for kids to do, away from the kids club. The Ed Sheeran tribute show, was one of the best I've seen on msc. The theatre was spacious and ...

Brazil being on our travel bucket list and cruising being our favourite type of holiday we thought this holiday would be perfect. It was the complete opposite. Food- Disgusting. Raw chicken, tiny portions, horrible selection, half the buffet shut, need I go on? I think MSC are keeping the cuttlefish afloat as for some strange reason that was on every night. The food was so bad there was times ...

We found a good deal and brought the extended family. The good: the ship is good enough, lots of cafes mostly closed when you need them. Staff overall good and helpful, some exceptions. Cabins are small and older looking. TV like a postage stamp with white noise. The bad: The buffet is like a crocodile feeding ground. Food mainly carbs and mostly poor in taste. Although the manager was very ...
