Ship Facts: MSC Divina Review (by Cruise Critic!) | MSC Divina Deck Plans
Beautiful ship but there are issues

What a beautiful ship - probably the prettiest I have seen. It was tough to rate this ship due to the pros and cons. Being a fairly new ship, everything is in very good condition. Other than some carpet stains, the ship was pristine so the cleaning crew get full marks.

Cabins are well laid out and are quite attractive but my wife felt the bed was uncomfortable and the pillows were terrible.

Dining Room service is only fair, at best. That is not to criticize the staff as they are friendly and work very hard to please you. I believe the issue is they are over-extended so dinner can drag on for up to 2 hours.

The food is not remarkable but quite acceptable. The buffet restaurant is well laid out into sections so lines are usually minimal. Selection and quality is good.

If you like to circle the ship on the promenade deck, forget it because you are limited to back and forth on one side of the ship or the other.

Evening stage entertainment is different than what the other guys offer. Some of my fellow passengers raved about it but generally it wasn't my cup of tea.

What I'll call "crowd management" is a horror show when it comes to tendering and disembarkation. Passengers are summoned long before they can be accommodated resulting in needless long lines and wait times.

All public announcements are in English but the percentage of non-English speaking passengers is much higher than the typical Caribbean cruise. Kids, kids, kids, everywhere! There should be some adults only areas, such as the stern pool, but there are none. "Kids cruise free" should be a huge red flag to anyone not enamoured by having the little darlings bumping into you or running the corridors or pushing all the elevator buttons.
