This was something like our 55th cruise and we are a young 70+ couple. We had never been on a MSC cruise and thought this would be worth a try. We sandwiched the cruise between two weeks in Florida. We chose the Yacht Club. It is worth ... Read more

This was our second cruise on the Divina. We tried using Lyft to get us to the port and found that this was far better than driving to the port and parking our car. The cost was minimal and the service was fantastic. The driver arrived ... Read more
