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.

Fancy a Movie Night in or Away?

By Haydn Jones

There is nothing my family love more than cuddling up of a Sunday night , curtains closed, eating microwave popcorn and watching a movie. Its become a Sunday night tradition in our house. Although there is something my two boys love slightly more – movies under the stars on a cruise. We often end up missing the shows and evening entertainment, because for them this is the perfect treat. Sun loungers, blankets, hot chocolate and even pop corn and pizza bought to you whilst watching a fil...

Well the day has come and gone. As you know from my previous blog the big day has come and gone. And Im officially 40! Do I feel any different? Not at the moment but lets see if this whole ‘life begins’ is true…..On a more serious note I couldnt believe the news I read that disgraced ‘Captain Coward’ Francesco Schettino made a statement saying after arrival at his jail cell – he would cope with jail and start by going back to being a ‘ship boy’ ...
