They obviously do!!

Here are the fantastica perks as given in the USA; UK; Australia


USA

they get CASH as well






UK






AUSTRALIA


They get the small print which gives the effective start date for priority dining:- 20th April 2016








What does an Aussie get if he books a European cruise departing before 20/04/16, many of them do ?

I copied your "Fantastica Experience" screen shot you posted Pete and attached it to my message when I inquired about "My Choice Dining" option for Fantastica Experience Balcony bookings and let them know that it was from a 2016 brochure. MSC USA responded back letting me know to check the experience packages every so often as they may make changes to them periodically.

Pete, I don't see what you mean about USA getting cash as well. The "Free ($200 value)" refers to the imaginary value of the Fantastica perks listed below. Is there something else about cash that I missed? Thanks!

Something I've noticed on the US list, Mike ............... room service delivery after 11pm to 6 am incurs a charge of $3.95. In Europe, delivery is free over the 24 hrs!!

Notice that it's the Lirica class ships that will offer "My Choice Dining" from April next. One of the restaurants will be allocated to the service. It's as a result of the Renaissance project and the added balcony cabins. I don't think it's going to be a feature on the other class ships for Fantastica balconies.

My mistake. I just read it as free money to the value of $200, now I see what it means.

Immediately before seeing the Fantasia perks I'd seen this and now you can see where i got misled

Thanks, Pete. Just wanted to be sure I wasn't missing out on something.
I guess there are pros and cons for each country. It would be much simpler if everybody got the same deals and information!

We had "My Choice Dining" on the MSC Armonia last January on our Canary Islands cruise. All suite- and balcony cabin guests were allocated to the La Pergola Restaurant. Excellent food and service

Yes, post-Renaissance - not all of the Lirica class have been stretched, yet, so My Choice Dining hasn't been rolled out across the class. The final is MSC Lirica which is due to be stretched and refurbished by Nov 2015. I have to wait 'til Oct 2016 to experience it on Sinfonia. Hopefully it will be as terrific as yours was in La Pergola on Armonia.

You have been given an aurea suite with a Fantastica "Experience" - you won't get the Aurea "Experience" which would include a drinks package and a massage.

FRom the FAQ section of the new pricing structure

If the new cruise is of higher value the difference will be paid by the passenger. If the new cruise is of lower value the difference (no more than 25%) will be offered as onboard benefits (such as: credit, upgrade, drinks package etc). When a complimentary upgrade is offered, our guests will benefit from the higher category cabin (from Bella to Fantastica for example), but not receive the benefits (pre-cruise or onboard).
You get the bigger cabin but that is all, AS Beamafar says,
No free drinks package ,
No massage,
No toweling robe and slippers
No access to the dedicated sundeck
No priority boarding


possibly no "My time" dining in a dedicated part of the MDR.(depends on your local arrrangements over my time dining)


All the above may come to you if they forget to tell the staff you are an upgrade and not an Aurea paying guest.
The possiiblity is they may forget as comunication with the ships is not the best in the world


1211 is a lovely cabin you'll enjoy being in it even without the extras

It should be similar to the one I had on sinfonia

I have just started looking at MSC for a possible cruise in the future. This thread is very helpful/ I was just wondering- is the Bella experience like getting a guarantee room? Is there a possibility that you may be assigned a better class of room?
Thank you.

If you have a "Bella" cabin and get an upgrade only the cabin is upgraded eg. inside to Ov , or. inside or OV to balcony; The Bella experience doesn't get upgraded to Fantastica.

So if they play the old upgrade the insides because they are selling out and they want to keep the "cruise from" selling price low by always having some available , then an upgrade could be on the cards, and the most likely upgrade would be bella insides, but only to a "better" cabin

Thank you for your response. I was only wondering about the room, I did not even think about the experience upgrade. It makes sense that only the room may be upgraded.
Is the any "anytime" dining on MSC? Is it formal every night?
