MSC Fantasia's last drydock refurbishment was in 2023 (Sept 25 - Oct 11) conducted at MSC's Palumbo Malta Shipyard (Valletta Harbour). The project included mainly routine/regularly scheduled maintenance and classification works, as well as technical overhauls and some interior enhancements/renovations.
