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

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

We chose to cruise on the MSC Divina with our two children, aged 8 and 11 and with another couple who are in their early 60s. The major contributing factor was the price. This is my 17th cruise and we have cruised with NCL, Carnival, ... Read more
