  3. MSC Fantasia
Just returned from a Med cruise on the MSC Fantasia. We are seasoned cruisers and have never cruised with MSC before . Embarkation and disembarkation was very well organised . No problems with this at all . Ship is beautiful, yes, there are a few places that require refurbishment but does not detract from the aesthetics of the ship . (Fantasia being refurbished next year) Balcony room - 10174 The biggest we have had and always kept clean and tidy by cabin attendant Jean Bernard . Restaurant and food was exceptional, much better than RCI and Princess . Bars were excellent and with the Fantasia drinks package made things much easier . It would have cost us £1000 if we had not paid for this . Sandwiches, cakes , ice cream all free . Absolutely fantastic . Itinerary was another plus point except for Genoa which was very dirty and not much to see . We did not have a problem with people getting on and off at different ports and found the ship not as busy . Pool areas and sun beds were never a problem. No fighting for a sun bed even in high season.! Entertainment was disappointing as used to grand theatre shows but they did try ! I cannot say enough about this cruise and can only say you will not be disappointed . We enjoyed ourselves so much that we are looking to book for next year ! Price and standards are superb . Think other cruise lines could learn a thing from MSC . RCI =sky high prices that mere mortals cannot afford !!

Fantastic Fantasia!
