MSC FANTASIA is an Italian FANTASIA-class cruise ship owned and operated by MSC Cruises. She entered service in December 2008. She was the largest ship operated by MSC Cruises, along with her sister ship MSC SPLENDIDA , until the entrance to service of MSC DIVINA (2012) and MSC PREZIOSA (2013).
MSC FANTASIA was delivered to MSC Cruises on 11 December 2008. She was officially named on 18 December 2008, in Naples by Sophia Loren, and started on her maiden voyage on the same date. Since her first cruise, this vessel has been the flagship of the company.

On March 5, 2009, high winds snapped the forward mooring lines of MSC FANTASIA while she was docked in Spain. The bow drifted away from the dock side and caused a passenger gangway to collapse into the water. One passenger and three crew members had to be rescued from the sea. One passenger was taken to hospital with head injuries, while the other three were treated for hypothermia. When she was sailing into Naples on April 5, 2012, she hit the wall of the dock, nobody was hurt, but she had a small dent on her stern area where she hit.
2018 In service, same name, owners and manager, Under Panama registry.
