Overview

One of MSC's largest ships, MSC Fantasia is a behemoth in every sense of the word. Carrying up to 4,363 passengers and 1,370 crew members, the ship maintains a roughly 1-to-3 crew-to-guest ratio.

Built in 2008 and updated in 2012, Fantasia touts some big-ship amenities, such as the ship within a ship – the MSC Yacht Club. Guests in these 71 suites have access to butler service as well as a private bar, solarium and two pools. Passengers can also choose Interior, Ocean View, Balcony and Suite category cabins, all of which include minibars and TVs.

MSC Fantasia offers six restaurants on board, including a buffet and a Tex-Mex specialty restaurant (for an additional fee). Thanks to its size, the ship can also accommodate a 22,507-square-foot Aqua Park, plus 11 bars and lounges.

Just as large is the ship's L'Avanguardia Theater, spanning 22,454 square feet. You'll also find more intimate venues like a piano bar and a disco.

In 2018-19, MSC Fantasia sails to the Mediterranean and South America from ports in Barcelona, Brazil and more.
