We drove to Miami and parked in Premier Parking Garage which is half the price of the port. Embarkation was extremely smooth and fast. We(me, husband and 2 late teens) packed essentials in a backpack planning to be without a room for a ... Read more

Exemplary customer service!!! My daughter and I have food sensitivities this really limited what we would be able to eat on the cruise. One of the guest service agents set up a meeting with the Hotel Manger AND the Executive Chef of the ... Read more

My husband and I have done 5 other cruises in the past (with cruise lines other than MSC). We wanted to introduce my reluctant parents to cruising, as well as take our two young sons (aged 2 and 5) on their first cruise. MSC offered more ... Read more

This cruise surpassed our expectations. The MSC Divina ship was nearly new, well-kept, and glamorous. The cabins were larger and more luxurious than we thought they would be. The shows were first class and captivating. The shows ... 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

Hubby and I booked Divina as first-timers, and we almost didn't. What a MISTAKE it would have been to miss out on this. First, it is important to read the literature and know your options. The buffet around the pool serves a lot of ... 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

Chose cruise mainly due to the price and it being a cruise line that we haven't been with before. The biggest disappointment was the number of children on board the ship. The children were very badly behaved, loud and unruly. Lots of ... 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

15th cruise - yes, I DO have a clue :) Overall: Not impressed. I would go again only if we got the 4-person balcony for $1400 like those who booked 10 months in advance did. We booked 6 months in advance and paid $2800. This boat, ... Read more

Before cruising with MCS Divina I read the reviews and they were very poorly so bad that I thought that by June things were going to be much better as a result of the previous reviews but I was so wrong. The personnel in the cruise ... Read more

I had a lovely cruise! I've cruised many times on several lines, I found MSC to be as expected with 4,000 plus guest to cater to. Starting with embarkation, the lines albeit a little long, (remember 4000 guest) moved fairly quickly, ... Read more

I must apologize in advance for my very lengthy review, but felt I should be fair and practical in my findings. I will say that prior to this cruise, I had only sailed on Carnival, so in all fairness, it isn't a true apples to apples ... Read more

We cruised with MSC last year and loved it so booked again. This route was amazing - Venice - Bari - Olympia - Santorini - Athens - Corfu - Kotor. We are still pinching ourselves in disbelief that we saw so much in 7 days! We were on a ... Read more
