Overall,a great experience. We're pleasantly surprised with the good condition of the ship. We have been on the Divina twice, and it was very similar. This cruise had an older, quieter group, which was fine for us. Had the Aurea package ... Read more

After sailing for several times on Princess I wanted to try MSC, hoping it would be similar experience that I got used to on Princess. It wasn't. Ship is beautiful and pristine what comes to maintenance and cleanliness. Unfortunately MSC ... Read more

What can I say? This is our second cruise on the Divina and she only gets more divine each time! Embarkation was super smooth and felt very fast. We arrived around 11am and were on board a little after noon. We had a blast meeting ... Read more

The Divina is a great ship. Atrium is super and all facilities (dining room, bars, cafés, pools, etc...) are very good. But, with 3600 passengers, it seems to be too crowded. On cruising days, it was difficult to find a spot at one ... Read more

Cruised out of Miami in late April, 2017. Embarkation started at 1 pm and was on ship 30 minutes later. I noticed that most passengers in the check in line were not holding USA passports. This is important as you must be comfortable ... Read more

Chose this cruise as I particularly wanted to sail into Valetta. Have sailed with MSC before. This time boarding took over 2 hours in Genoa. I met people who said they had taken 4. This meant the cabin was ready as soon as we boarded. I ... Read more

First of all, the Divina is a beautiful ship with an amazing "family-like" crew. However, it was just not what we were expecting or used to. For the price though (buy one, get one passenger free sale) we were able to find ways ... Read more
