The Green list – things to know

  • People returning from a Green List country, do not have to self-quarantine, however they are asked to restrict their movements
  • If you book a holiday to a green list destination and should it come off the green list while you are there or before you are due to travel – we will contact you and offer assistance
  • Please refer to the following link for an up to date list of countries included in the Green List

I am booked to travel to a destination included in the Green List, can I still go?

Government advice for countries included in the Green List is currently to avoid non essential travel, however you may still travel if wish to do so. We will be contacting all customers regardless of the destination they are travelling to and will discuss what options you have.

I am booked to travel to a destination that is not included in the Green List?

We will contact you and discuss your options as you would be travelling against government advice. Travel Insurance may not cover you, so it is essential that you check your travel insurance policy.

I’m still worried, can I cancel my booking?

Summer Mediterranean Cruise - 7 night


MSC Fantasia


Mediterranean and Europe

The ship that launched a new experience

MSC Fantasia launched an entirely new vision - the cruise ship as ecological floating city along Mediterranean lines.

At its heart you’ll find a real stone piazza complete with espresso bar serving freshly-baked pastries and authentic gelati - the perfect place to savour a sweet pause from bargain hunting in the chic boutiques and duty-free centre nearby.

Designer-themed lounge bars with stunning creative lines bring a metropolitan vibe, gourmet specialities and varied entertainment, including a piano bar, jazz bar and Sports Bar with videogames and live event screenings.

Then there’s the opulent Monte Carlo Casino, panoramic Liquid Disco and futuristic Broadway-scale theatre, offering an array of world-class performances.

The restaurants offer a capital dining experience, from the grand Il Cerchio d’Oro to the intimate Red Velvet with real Murano glass chandeliers and the exuberant El Sombrero’s tongue-tingling Tex-Mex and cocktails.

Sports facilities abound, from tennis, basketball, mini-golf, a jogging track and gym to the Aqua Park Pool Complex, a thrilling Formula 1 simulator and 4D Cinema.

And like every great city, MSC Fantasia offers worlds within worlds, with restorative refuges in the adults-only Top 18 sun deck and exotic MSC Aurea Spa, plus fantastic facilities and clubs for kids and teens.

The ultimate in luxury is the exclusive MSC Yacht Club, a unique ship-within-a-ship boasting its own Concierge Reception, 24-hour butler service, private Lounge and pool deck.

But it doesn't end there. There’s always more to discover in a cruise on the unforgettably stylish floating city that is MSC Fantasia.
