Destination wedding! Beautiful day, horrible cruise. This line needs lots more training and working with SO many passengers... NOT a space in the pool... there were 4,300 people and children galore.. Food was mediocre.. ... 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

Okay so first off I am not a snob or picky AT ALL but if you have not booked yet, please let me convince you not to. I am a five time cruiser, 19 years old, and this was by far my worst experience with cruising. So for 18 to 21 year olds, ... Read more

Just got off the MSC Divina, have to say that overall I am satisfied, but I was expecting a little more from an Italian Cruise line. Ship: The ship looks amazing from the outside and has a great pool area, but I have to say that the ... Read more

MSC Divina is a beautiful ship every detail from the staircases to the marble and the decor is immpeccable. We had a balcony room so it was spacious compared to other cruise liners. There wasn't much to do for anyone whos not a gambler or ... Read more

It took us around three hours to embark the ship. The ship is a very nice newer ship, The lay out has a lot of dead ends and found if difficult to get around. Elevators were very sloe. Seemed that all the people were always in one part of ... Read more

Getting on the ship took over 2 hours which was hardly the best start for a 4 day cruise. The worst thing was that not one single MSC staff member apologized for the wait and it appeared like it was normal which is a reason why it would be ... Read more

A Bad Start: Thousands of passengers stood in line for 3 hours waiting to board the ship. It was horribly unorganized, stressful, and unpleasant. The Good: The headliners provided wonderful, professional entertainment and the ship itself ... Read more

Let me preface this review with two factors. First, this was a full-ship charter cruise, so I cannot comment on the normal entertainment because our charter group provided all the entertainment for our cruise. Second, I am a seasoned ... Read more
