We have taken many cruises and read the reviews for many months on ports, ships and destinations before we book. This is the first time I didn't trust the reviews. We choose this for the ports of call since it was going where we ... Read more

The MSC Divina was a wonderful experience! It is about time that a competing company presented some Meditteranian class to the Caribbean with impecable Italian service. Other cruise lines should take note of this product. Embarcation was ... Read more

The Divina is gorgeous! The unbelievable Swarovski Crystal stairways, the beautiful Gaudi-esque indoor salt-water swimming pool, the serene and expansive spa, the stylish and clever auditorium, and the only infinity pool at sea...all were ... Read more

We were booked into the Yacht Club, so perhaps this is not the typical feedback. In every way, from the embarkation to the disembarkation, we were treated like royalty - having our own butler, passing around long queues, and enjoying many ... Read more

My spouse and I had been on 5 previous cruises. We had been on enjoyed cruises with both Carnival and Royal Caribbean. We found that Carnival was fine if we were traveling with other family members that had children but Royal Caribbean had ... Read more

I have been on 6 cruises so far, all seven days, and all Caribbean and I have never experienced such God awful service as I have on this ship. Clearly, the crew is either worn out, or just has lousy management. Even the front desk staff ... Read more

We have a ball wherever we go. The glass is always half full as they say. that being said there are a number of things that MSC MUST do right away or they could alienate the US market and possibly have to move what is a gorgeous ship back ... Read more

Our 10th Anniversary was ruined. No dancing, no romantic dinners, it was a take over of a large and very different group. All the reviews seem to be the same. The food was less than acceptable. The dinning room Villa Rosa was awful. The ... Read more

I will start out by saying that my partner and I go on a cruise every year. We have been on Royal, Carnival, and Norwegian prior to this MSC Cruise. We went as part of a group that took up about half of the ship. The activities that were ... Read more

Booked with a large group. Promised the moon and stars but that is hardly what was delivered. Both the agency and the Cruise line had a full year to prepare for this 1700 plus member group, that brought aboard alot of it's own specialty ... Read more

Having just returned from our twelfth cruise with the eastern Mediterranean route on the MSC Divina, we are stumped at the abundance of negative reviews we had read in advance. Our experience was just the opposite. No cruise is perfect but ... Read more

After reading some negative reviews of this ship and the cruise line we were a little concerned - but need not have worried. We sailed from Venice Oct 2010 to Bari, Katakalon, Izmir, Istanbul, Dubrovnik & returned to Venice. ... Read more
