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

We have had done two previous trips on board the Opera which was great. The MSC Sinfonia is great, we had a wonderful time. The entertainment crew on a ship makes a huge difference to your overall experience and was far better than the ... Read more

Great ship along with sister ship Splendida it is beautiful and has the wow factor when you go onboard. The food in MDR is really good and up there with other cruise lines while portions may be smaller than usual they are fine as a 3 ... Read more

Embarkation/Disembarkation -------------------------- We landed early at Dubai airport. Fairly big queue at passport control, but emerged into the sunshine around 10:30am. We ignored the taxi people inside the terminal and just went ... Read more

We had never cruised with MSC and choose this one for price and a wedding anniversary but we were very disappointed. Embarkation went smoothly and we were allowed on the ship early due to the weather in Barcelona. The cabin was a decent ... Read more

We chose MSC to go away for Christmas largely because of the price. Having said that we paid over 3k for 11 nights, so not exactly a bargain. Where to start? Well we arrived at Milan Linate airport with no delays and only an hour and a ... Read more

Great value for the dollar with an interesting itinerary. Prior to departure we were given a complimentary upgrade to the exclusive yacht club. Upon arrival at the port in Barcelona, we were seated and offered champagne. After about a ... Read more

We have just returned from a 22 night B2B cruise.Our first MSC cruise was last month and this was no better (actually it was worse). We were attracted by the Status Match scheme which catapulted us into their highest Black Card Status. ... Read more

We choose this cruise because 300 people from our community were going. We usually go on 2 cruises a year. Embarkation was good, but disembarkation was a disaster at the Miami port. Ship was clean, but too many ... Read more

We loved our experience on the MSC Divina. We'd always wanted to do a holiday cruise and after checking prices, itineraries, perks and a few other things, we decided that MSC seemed to have the best bang for the buck. The Divina truly is ... Read more

Service was good but was not told that the tip of the restaurants in the hotel and paid separately. The ship had a lot of activities, games, dances, shows. Got to eat a lot and well, drinking well as the allegrissimo drinks package. ... Read more

This was our first cruise on MSC and the Divina. I've got to say we were impressed. The ship is probably one of the nicest we've been on and the crew does an excellent job of keeping it spotless. Of course everything isn't perfect but the ... Read more

MSC is a Mediterranean cruise line that currently has one ship sailing out of Miami (a new ship, the Seaside, will arrive in Jan 2018). We were skeptical about trying them since we had been on another Italian line, Costa, and were ... Read more

This was our first cruise ever and we loved every single moment of it. I have been working in the Airline Industry for 20 years now as a Flight Attendant, so traveling is nothing new to me. I have stayed in hotels all over the world, but I ... Read more

The price was good and the itinerary was what I wanted. Having sailed on the DiVina before, I thought I would give it another chance. Food what the worst I have had on a cruise line. Food was usually cold and had no taste. Tried the ... Read more

My wife and I have sailed several different Caribbean itineraries over the years. We decided to give MSC a try primarily because of the low initial price, but we were also intrigued by the loyalty tier matching program they offer. Over ... Read more

We chose this cruise as it was very reasonable and the ports were appealing . Firstly the flight into Genoa was horrific the turbulence and the terrible landing dare I say by a woman pilot was the worst ever and we are seasoned ... Read more

Rude Italian staff. No chance of getting a chair by the pool on deck 14 or 15 during the day. Too many passengers for the size of the pools and hot tubs. Enough room for 2500 max, not 4500. No chance of ever getting a buffet table at ... Read more
