This was our 30th cruise and 3rd on MSC. We like MSC, but it is definitely a little behind some of its competition. You really need to know what you are getting into the ships are not like travelling on American, British or Scandinavian ... Read more

We have been on 11 cruises prior to this one and the MSC Divina is BY FAR the most beautiful and well maintained ship on which we have sailed. The decorations are tasteful and not gaudy and there are so many public areas on the ship for ... Read more

Even before we got on board we were bombarded with staff asking us to book excursions, spa treatments etc. Embarkation itself was speedy, this is the one and only time! The ship is stunning, our cabin at first glance was nice. Then we saw ... Read more

Just back from the 'holiday of a lifetime' what a joke. From the arrival at the ship, until disembarkation, MSC seemed determined to make every step a battle, from herding us on with the people on excursions, to a complete refusal to ... Read more

I'm not sure why some people give the Divina such poor ratings - other than the fact that perhaps they thought they were on an American cruise ship and therefore had incorrect expectations to begin with. We had an absolutely fabulous ... Read more
