Cruise ship review

The MSC Fantasia is stylish and ecological, balancing the warmth and comfort of the Mediterranean atmosphere with cutting edge design. 

At its heart you’ll find a real stone piazza complete with an espresso bar serving freshly-baked pastries and authentic gelati - the perfect place to take a moment away from bargain hunting in the chic boutiques and duty-free centre nearby. 
Enjoy the metropolitan atmosphere of our designer-themed lounge bars with gourmet specialities and varied entertainment, including a piano bar, jazz bar and Sports Bar with videogames and live event screenings.  The restaurantsoffer an unforgettable dining experience, from the grand Il Cerchio d’Oro and the intimate Red Velvet with real Murano glass chandeliers to El Sombrero’s Tex-Mex and cocktails. 

There’s a massive range of sports facilities, from tennis, basketball, mini-golf, a jogging track and gym to the Aqua Park Pool Complex, a thrilling Formula 1 simulator and 4D Cinema

MSC Fantasia also offers secluded areas in the Top 18 sun deck and the indulgent MSC Aurea Spa, plus fantastic zones and clubs designed for kids and teens.  

The ultimate in luxury is the exclusive MSC Yacht Club, a unique ship-within-a-ship boasting its own Concierge Reception, 24-hour butler service, private Lounge and pool deck. 

But it doesn't end there. There’s always more to discover on the stylish MSC Fantasia.
