MSC Fantasia Cruises

3.9
(from 11 verified customers)

MSC Fantasia entered service in 2008, at 137,936 GT and carrying 3,274 passengers. At the time this was the most innovative ship built by MSC, and still is rather special. New are the Yacht Club ship-within-a-ship living space with Courtyard Villa complex, retractable glass pool roof, 4D with strapped-in-seats cinema, Balinese spa, and high ratio of balcony staterooms.

English speaking travellers who are comfortable with European service and cuisine will find the ship a delight. Dining places offer an excellent range. Note that specialty restaurants have no extra charge, but the menu is à la carte with reasonable prices. This ship is best suited to young couples, singles, families who enjoy big ship city life, with its mix of noise, nationalities and languages.)
