I'm sorry I don't have time to write a lengthy detailed review of our cruise in the Fantasia's Yacht Club. Actually we were on board for a total of 25 days in that we had a one week Persian Gulf cruise Dubai-Dubai before embarking on the Dubai-Civitavecchia repositioning cruise. Yacht club is a fantastic experience and I'd be hard pressed to find anything negative to report. Our cabin (15002) was wonderful as was our butler Zakia and cabin steward Gusti. Meals were divine whether in the L'Etoile restaurant where our waiter Giuseppe and Maitre Giovanni treated us like royalty. The daily lunch buffet up at the One Pool was great as were the snacks served throughout the day in the Top Sail Lounge. The management by the Chief Butler Vinod and his staff assured pure excellence. The weather did not cooperate for several days during the first part of the cruise, causing us to miss Sir Bani Yas island. Weather and rough seas can upset any cruise so there's no sense complaining about something that the captain and ship have no control over. In this short review I'll say that the Fantasia is a wonderful ship which I've sailed on several times now and am looking forward to a two week Caribbean cruise on it in November. Read Less

First dinner night was stunned to find that you had to pay for water and tea or coffee. It is impossible to get a place around the pools. People were getting up at 04:30 to put their stuff on chairs. Continuous selling on board of drink packages etc. Unable to cancel an excursion without going to ships doctor (we were told that it would cost 70 to 80 Euros) this when we were not feeling well. tour costs 110 Euros for both of us thus we would have to spend 150 Euros to recoup 110 Euros. Dining was about a 3 out of 10. with 2 meals totally unedible. 4300 passengers just not confortable, The dining at the buffet on the 14 floor was always a pushy disaster. Saw an Italian man finger every piece of bread in the row when there were tongs for picking bread up with right there. We were absolutely stunned by how pushy some of the Europeans were (Italian mainly but others too). WILL WE EVER TAKE AN MSC CRUISE AGAIN -NO-NO-NO- P.S. They now have a ship with 5700 passengers.
