In addition the butler will arrange for cigars and wine, liquors and champagne and pre-book tables at the restaurants, spa treatments in the Aurea Spa, ad hoc excursions as chosen by the guest and even arrange a private party in cabins.
For the very first time on board a cruise ship guests will walk on a Swarovski crystal floor. A transparent ceiling also permits the guests to experience all the magic of sailing as they gaze at the starlit skies.
The MSC Fantasia is the first Fantasia-class ship in the MSC Cruises fleet, offering its guests an outstanding level of comfort with a touch of Italian flair. She boasts an exceptional range of amenities and a sensational entertainment programme, to satisfy both the young and the young at heart.

Younger children (3-12) will love the free kids’ clubs and programme of activities to keep them entertained all day long. There’s also a dedicated kids’ pool with an Arctic theme and play area for the little ones. Teens (13-17) will enjoy their own dedicated hang-out spaces with arcade style games, tournaments, sports, live music, discos and dance classes to keep them occupied – plus, the outdoor water slide running between two of the decks offers teens yet more adrenaline-filled fun throughout the day.
