I never heard of this cruise line. But while searching for something different I cam across MSC. I was doing this 5 months out. They had an offer of two for one. The dates were good and most reviews of the Ship-Divina were fine. I made ... Read more

I think MSC caters to the European market which is okay if that is their target market. I think they have some growing to do to target the American Cruiser. Having been on 4 different cruise lines, I am accustomed to over-the-top service ... Read more

Embarkation and Disembarkation went well, the ship is ok but the pool and buffet restaurant are too small for all these people. The level of service is not the best, with room not properly cleaned and the hallways are a disaster with food ... Read more

I and my son took that cruise starting July 2nd, ending July 5th, departing from Port of Miami, cruising to Port Canaveral and Nassau, Bahamas, returning to Miami. The good thing about the cruise was that I bought an inside cabin and they ... Read more

Sailed on MSC Divina for the first time over the 4th of July weekend. It was a short cruise Saturday to Tuesday. I was a little apprehensive about sailing on MSC based on the mixed reviews but I got a really great rate so couldn't pass ... Read more

The Divina is an elegant and amazingly beautiful ship. Many long time cruisers say the Divina is the classiest ship they have sailed on and to date I would agree.The public areas for guests consist of several lounges- such as the Black and ... Read more

The ship is beautiful. The staff is horrible. They are bunch of arrogant unprofessional people. The only redeeming quality is the nighttime shows. MSC needs to work on training their staff to understand that being nice is something people ... Read more

Hello Everyone, Here is my opinion of the MSC Divina sailed 7/2/16-7/5/16 after 30 plus cruises. Foreword: Okay, I really had to think hard and put myself in MSC position and be very open minded. I like to give a honest opinion in ... Read more

Just got back from the cruise. t i wouldn't recommend anyone to this cruise line. The service was horrible and you couldn't find an employee with a smile. They seemed way understaffed for the amount of people they had on the ship. In ... Read more

This cruise line, or at least this ship, appears to have an identity issue. They position themselves as a 4 star cruise line but deliver a 2 star experience. To begin with, the ship is huge! This isn't really a problem except the ship ... Read more

I took my wife on the Def Leppard cruise as a birthday celebration, and to give MSC a try, this was our 9th cruise... I'd read about all I could find about Divina prior to the cruise and so was aware of others misgivings. While ... Read more

I will start off saying that I have cruised on NCL, Royal Caribbean, Carnival and Celebrity and NEVER have I experienced anything remotely close to the HELL I experienced on the MSC Divina! I boarded the MSC Divina in Miami as part of ... Read more

I have cruised with Holland America, Norweigan, Costa and now MSC. NEVER AGAIN. Embarkation was ridiculously long with zero help even though I purchased a package that included PRIORITY boarding. Texted and emailed the "help ... Read more

On the Divina on a recent rock cruise. Been on lots of cruises but first with msc. As it was a specialist cruise, clearly did not have any choice of ship. Have to say I would not go with msc unless i had to. They simply don't compare to ... Read more

If I could give zero stars I would. Do not under any circumstances book a cruise with this cruise line. We were on a special cruise for Def Leppard. I was told by several people who booked the cruise that they were NOT informed that it was ... Read more

I cruised on the MSC Divina for the first time for the Def Leppard cruise. From the beginning, the employees were rude, unhelpful and uninformed. Check in was excessively long and they don't even let you provide your credit card for ... Read more

The good news, I took my daughter and my two granddaughters on their first cruise. Through no fault of the cruise line, this just wasn't a great first experience cruising. The weather was worse than predicted, very rainy and cold. Our ... Read more

My husband and I sailed on a theme-based cruise (Monsters of Rock) so we did not pick the cruise line. Having only cruised once previously (and many years ago), we went with no expectations. We had high hopes for this Italian-based line ... Read more
