I strongly recommend you use the big orange button, cruise reviews & use the drop down lists for Fantasia. It appears entertainment will be the last thing on your mind......Wilba.

We have just come back from the maiden voyage on Fantasia. It will depend on what you like as entertainment. We were not impressed with the overall entertainment as you can see from the reviews which Wilba has told you to view. We spent most of our nights in the Il Transatlantico bar as we found them the most decent performers who appreciated us as an audience. They thanked us for our applause and looked like they were enjoying themselves unlike other acts. I cannot comment much on the other acts, just that they didn't suit our taste. Elegance Quartet certainly didn't appreciate the audience, they didn't smile - miserable and they were choosing what to play next after each song - they should have a set planned already. The theatre is lovely however a 1/2 hour show does not do it justice. On previous cruises we have spent entire nights in the theatre watching a variety of shows but here we were unable to do this. I will tell you what there is each night and the location: Theatre - 1/2 hour show each night. Il Transatlantico Patrich - Pianist Mattia - Guitarist Fantasia Bar Los Paraguayos - Trio-Spanish Guitars/Spanish Singers Elegance Quartet - Piano, Violin, Cello Piazza San Giorgio Alicia - Singer Duo International Sound - Singer/Keyboard Manhattan Bar Angelica - Band Easy Quartet - Band L'Insolito Lounge Silio's Band Hope this helps. If you want to know anything else about MSC Fantasia I may be able to help.

That pretty much sums up the entertainment. Bear in mind the ship caters for a variety of nationalities, so there won't be any 'headline' acts. Some shows are better than others, but you can always find somewhere to hang out. One traveller took a portable DVD player and watched his own dvds in his cabin. The cost of watching a movie on the in-ship TV is about 11 euros. Very expensive.

Are we just too tight on tips?

By Isabelle Larder

Plastic is Not Fantastic

By Lily Canderton

Lily Canderton's blog

I was watching the Princess Documentary this week in Alaska and it was good to see the crew policing the use of plastic straws on the open decks when the ship was in Glacier Bay as they are one of the biggest causes of debris and pollution in our oceans and are difficult to recycleThe average American uses disposable plastic utensils at an average rate of 1.6 straws per person per day. Based on national averages, this equates to each person in the U.S. using about 38,000 straws between the ag...
