The ship was ready for its passengers. It was clean and tidy. The embarking procedure was understandably slow, but then rather slow and thorough that anything else. I did not make use of any excursions The cabin and the whole ship, as ... Read more

What a disappointment. My partner and I had been looking forward to this trip with great anticipation for over a year, leaving from Dubai to Fremantle. Food was mediocre and never hot, especially in the cafeteria. The layout of the ... Read more

We have traveled on three MSC ships operating in the Caribbean (Opera, Lirica, & Poesia) prior to our recent cruise on the Divina. I must say it was, overall, a great disappointment. Too many people which the staff is not big enough to ... Read more

We found the service comparable to our last cruise with carnival. The decor had more bling, nobody can top that fabulous stairway. We did find it challenging adjusting to continental meals, although Western tastes were catered for it ... Read more

The Divina is a good modern ship and that's where it ends. We were on a 2 week West and East Caribbean cruise, however the entertainment on the second week was merely a repetition of the 1st. One port of call, Great Stirrup Cay was ... Read more

We were referred by a friend because she was dazzled by the beauty of the ship. It was very attractive if you enjoy white, black and silver opulence. The food was less than satisfactory. The ship was extremely crowded and noisy and catered ... Read more

Our review is with a perspective of prior sailings on RCI, Disney, Princess, NCL and Carnival. This ship is beautiful, new and the layout allows for the large number of passengers to be accommodated easily. The buffet was especially large ... Read more

If you like scenic waterfalls, you will love these cabins. If you want to actually sit out on and enjoy your balcony, avoid booking these cabins. We were booked in stateroom #11262 and our traveling friends were in #11301. We were unable ... Read more

We have been on many cruises (26) since 2004 and you must remember that there are good points and not so good points on every single cruise ship. But the negative reviews on the Divina are not very fair. People who complain, usually ... Read more

On reading previous reviews I have come to the conclusion that this ship can be classed as the Marmite of the Cruising World; it's either loved or hated. I have just returned from a 10 day cruise to Holland, Spain, Portugal and France. ... Read more
