The first in an exceptional class of cruise ships, MSC Fantasia is everything a modern cruise ship should be – but with a little extra Italian style added for good measure! She offers her passengers extraordinary levels of comfort, entertainment and safety whilst employing cutting-edge technology to safeguard the environment. Keynote features include the MSC Aurea Spa, 5 restaurants (one of which is exclusive to MSC Yacht Club passengers), 4 swimming pools, 12 hydro-massage pools, coffee bars, shops, a children’s area, a Formula 1 simulator and an interactive 4 D cinema. The MSC Aurea Spa features a thermal cave with treatments to enhance both beauty and health: therapeutic mud packs, perfumed vapours, aesthetic massages and much, much more. MSC Fantasia has an exclusive VIP area: the MSC Yacht Club with 71 spacious suites, a bar, solarium, 2 hydro-massage pools, a swimming pool, an exclusive a la carte French restaurant and observation lounge with bar, Concierge and a forward Observation Lounge where huge glass windows enable guests to make the most of the amazing views. A butler service will operate throughout the VIP area: offering assistance at check-in, overseeing the transport of luggage, unpacking and serving traditional English high tea. 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. MSC Fantasia's Mediterranean Cruises take place throughout the summer and into the winter too.
