MSC Fantasia
Sail Date: August 01, 2012
Ship: MSC Fantasia
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago
The ship is fine, new and clean. Our room steward was good. The food was okay but the service was very slow and the waiters do not know how to serve and remove dishes properly. The staff overall do not smile and are often rude and short tempered. Other than the Michael Jackson show, the shows are nothing special. The overall impression is that MSC is just out for another euro whenever and wherever they can get it. Overall, we'd say take a cruise with someone else.
