Step onto the cruise ship of your dreams, with a length greater than the height of the Eiffel Tower, when you board the massive, eco-friendly MSC Fantasia. The influence of Italian sophistication is evident in the art, décor, and overall ambiance of this beautiful ship. 80% of the staterooms onboard have a view of the ocean; many of which have balconies. You’ll enjoy some spectacular and original sights while onboard, including a staircase of Swarovski crystals, the Aqua Park complete with 150 illuminated musical fountains, and transparent ceilings, so your view of the stars is never obstructed. Continue the journey of your dreams when the ship docks in enriching ports in the Mediterranean. With so many exciting, innovative features aboard this European inspired ship, you are sure to be entertained from dawn til dusk.

Dining options aboard MSC Fantasia seem endless. With choices ranging from sophisticated French cuisine to spicy Mexican, you may have a tough time choosing with the total of 5 restaurants onboard in addition to the two main dining rooms and buffets. Enjoy the French á la carte restaurant L’Etoile, Tex-Mex at Sombrero each for a nominal entry fee, or taste Italian wines and tapas at La Cantina Toscana. For a more casual dining experience, try the pizzeria, only open for the evening, or the Sports Bard for fast food.

Entertainment is not lacking on an MSC Fantasia cruise. By day, relax in the pool area, regardless of season.  L’Equatore Pool is a covered pool so you can enjoy swimming and water activities at sea, even in the cold winter months. At night, you’ll be drawn in by the theater, featuring a different show each night, or take pleasure in live music and dancing at one of the many bars and lounges.  You can even enjoy a classic casino night in the Casino delle Palme with over 1,000 square meters of slots and table games. You will find that your time spent at sea will be time well spent.
