Hi all,

My parents are cruising for the first time in May. They are travelling with a group on the MSC Fantasia out of Barcelona. I have cruised before (Royal Caribbean) but never with MSC. I have some questions below, if anyone could help with that would be fantastic!

What is the dress code in the dining room? Are there formal nights, is it strictly black tie or is a normal suit for men acceptable?
Are all meals (with the exception of the speciality restaurant) served in the dining room or is there a buffet similar to RCCL’s Windjammer?
Is there a flat fee for the speciality restaurants? Cost?
My parents love dancing, is there dancing on board? Types of music?
Can you purchase a soda card?
What kind of shops are on board?
Does anyone have some real life photographs outside of what is in the brochure?
Any other insider tips that would help!!

Thank you all and enjoy your cruises!
