MSC Fantasia with 4,000 passengers and crew on board has changed her course to bay of Souda close to Chania in Crete in the early hours of January 16 (Saturday).

The MSC Cruises ship departed from Haifa, Israel and was originally scheduled to arrive in Iraklion. Cruise company says the reason for changing the course was due to bad weather and one passenger dead of heart attack and the body needed to be sent for autopsy.
