I love this ship and i love MSC, I think people lose sight of the value for money you get with an MSC cruise. We have just done a one week northern europe cruise for £450 each including the Allegrisimo drinks package. The ship ... Read more

My husband and I have been on over 30 ocean cruises and 3 river cruises, so we consider ourselves somewhat experts on large and small vessels and what to expect. We loved the MSC Divina. Ignore the whiners - they will never be happy on ... Read more
