If you select MSC, do not do Brazil trip. 3 ports are the same, just beach and boat trips.

It's an Italian ship, wich is very obvious if you are on board. We didn't meet any other Dutch people onboard (wich we dont mind) and few Englisch/American guests. Mostly Italien, French and Spanish. We dont mind and liked te international vibe. But if you like to speak your own language with other guests and are not one of those nationalities, maybe another cruisliner is a better fit. Also the food is Italien/mediteranian, so keep that in mind also.

To be aware that many languages are used onboard.

Work out which main dining room you are allocated to and how to find it! Enjoy the atmosphere in the main attrium or the bars around it. Sports bar on this class ship are a good place to catch live sports on the tv, esp if football is on!

You don't need towels, shower gel or shampoo or your travel washing line ( just bring the pegs) but you will need to bring a travel size hair conditioner if you use it.

Don’t go if you’re British, have kids, enjoy food or have previously sailed with Royal Caribbean!

Book excursions before you go, ask for double helpings at dinner (if you are hungry) most food served is cold, tell them you want it hot and keep telling them (although we did for a month and it never improved) order veg and potatoes with your main course or you won’t get them. Have a long siesta late afternoon so that you can be awake for the late night entertainment

Go for the itinerary but not the entertainment

Watch the hygiene as many people didn't sanatise their hands and we both picked up colds!!

Yacht Club is the only way to travel on the MSC cruise line. Any other category would be sub par.

Try the formal dining room breakfast and lunch, much better than the buffet. Good menu choice mixed with buffet and waiter service means you can eat together and you get to meet other passengers and exchange ideas and tips.

If you like a big vessel with many people, you are right onboard MSC Fantasia

Be cautious with purchasing items on the ship. They were selling Valentino handbags, claiming they are authentic but workmanship is poor & products are made in China not Italy. After speaking with Store Assistant Manager, he said they are Class B, Mario Valentino products. Returned the products!
