The staff was courteous and could not do enough for you. The dining was great, however I was surprised that lobster was charged for on the European sailing since it was not charged for on the Caribbean sailing. The state room was perfect ... Read more

The "Fly, Cruise & Stay" Mediterranean package on the Divina was absolutely terrific. The ship is stunning - especially the Swarovski crystal staircase. The nightly entertainment is better than any I have ever seen aboard a ... Read more

This was our second MSC cruise... unfortunately it was not as good as the first. We booked this cruise as a final "Hurrah" with our adult (ages 27, 26 and 22) children. They had not ever been to Europe. We have enjoyed ... Read more

This was my third cruise and by far the worst. I have previously traveled Royal Caribbean and Carnival and both experiences were great. When we checked in to board the ship, our room was changed and the check in staff could not give me a ... Read more

Wonderful ship, but all that sparkles is not gold. Beautiful exterior with no substance beneath. Booked cruise in June 2014, felt at time good value for money, gratuities were listed and reasonable for a family of 5. However prices went ... Read more

We'd previously been on cruises with Royal Caribbean, Carnival and Holland America so we're not brand loyal and we'd like to think we've experienced a wide variety of ships, styles and quality. We take overly positive and overly negative ... Read more

I was surprisingly happy with this ship and this trip. If you wish to get a feel for the minutiae of this cruise, it’s well covered by other reviews; read them after this. By the way, the itinerary (Italy, Turkey, Greece) is ... Read more

This was our third cruise, but this was our first cruise with MSC, we had read numerous mixed reviews on several review sites and all I can say is that the people must have been on a different cruise. The ship is very Italian themed, but ... Read more

Last year we went on MSC Armonia so can compare. We used Rome Airport Transportation to meet us at the airport and take us to the ship. This worked out really well from being greeted by the driver (with our names on a board) just outside ... Read more
