Exuding Italian style and charm, the MSC Fantasia set out on her maiden voyage in February 2008. Offering the best in interior design, dining, entertainment and accommodation, this beautiful vessel is a firm favourite among the MSC fleet.

All accommodation is well-appointed and comfortable, ranging in size from modest interiors to spacious royal suites. Regardless of which option you go for, you will be able to enjoy a flatscreen television, air conditioning, a mini-bar and a private bathroom. Suite guests benefit from several additional perks, such as access to the MSC Yacht Club, a 'ship-within-a-ship' concept featuring luxurious private spaces to relax and unwind.

Entertainment: things to do on board the MSC Fantasia
The social heart of the ship is the elegant piazza, constructed from real stone. This beautiful space is home to duty-free shops and an espresso bar and is the perfect place to plan your day. There's plenty of fun to choose from - here are some highlights:

Destinations: MSC Fantasia itineraries
True to her European heritage, the MSC Fantasia's schedule revolves around ports in Italy, Spain and France, with the odd trip further afield to destinations such as Morocco and Malta. There's a great mix of shore excursions available at every port, from wine tasting in Sicily to a Gaudi architect tour in Barcelona.

Things to remember: On board the MSC Fantasia
Here are a few helpful things to keep in mind as you plan your cruise with the MSC Fantasia.
  • Families with children are well-looked after, with interconnecting cabins available and organised activities to keep little ones entertained day and night.
  • If you're an English speaker, you might very well pick up a little bit of French, Spanish or Italian - the crew repeat most things in a variety of languages during Mediterranean sailings.

I have enjoyed visiting as much of the world as possible over the years. Europe and the Mediterranean are personal favourites, but there is so much to see very close to our little Australasian corner of the globe- one of my top travel experiences was snorkeling with tropical fish and turtles in New Caledonia! Cruising is a fantastic way to see it all, and we hope to make booking a cruise easier for both first-timers and old salts. From ship tips to destination news and views, we will keep you up-to-date. Happy cruising!
