Enjoyable whirlwind tour
MSC Fantasia Cruise Review to Europe - Western Mediterranean
Took a last minute Mediterranean cruise to see as much of Spain, France and Italy as we could in August, which is a crowded time to be in Europe anyway. Cruise was lovely in general. Food was very good, some days better than others. There were very few English speakers, but most of the staff could help us out when needed. We met a lovely couple from Dublin at dinner so we ate with them most evenings! Some crew members were kinder than others, but overall, we had a good experience. Biggest complaint would be that the excursions didn't allow you enough time on shore. You could explore and shop or eat lunch, but there was seldom enough time to do both! We skipped Naples and did Capri, skipped Genoa and did Portifino. Fell in love with both and wished we had more time there!

Cabin / Stateroom
Morning buffet was an obstacle course at times! Dinner in the Red Velvet room was lovely but service was sometimes spotty or slow. Thankfully we had access to a private sun deck because the pool area is often very loud and filled with smokers.
