i really enjoyed my cruise on MSC Divina in August 2015. I think a person's attitude is the key to enjoying any experience, especially a holiday in a different country, with a different language and culture. My attitude was that no ... Read more

The checking and boarding was fine. The cabin was modern and very nicely decorated, clean with a small window of the port of the ship. Altough the window had mirroring effect from the outside, when interior lights were turned on this ... Read more

Great ship. Stink of smoke. Smokers in public areas. No crew enforcing rules i.e. no food or drink in theatre, passengers doing just what they pleased. No taking of videos in theatre.... passengers doing this anyway. as I said no one ... Read more

This is our 14th cruise and 1st on the MSC Davina. It is a beautiful ship, lots of glass, mainly the swarvoski staircase, which was simply classy. We were upgraded from an inside to a balcony on the 13th deck aft - not much of a balcony, ... Read more

We just returned from a cruise on the MSC Divina. As we were disembarking on the last day of the trip, it seemed to us that every comment we heard echoed our own feelings of the cruise we had just experienced. We have been on a number of ... Read more

This was my 55th cruise and my husband's 51st cruise. We have sailed on all the major lines multiple times, and on some lines that no longer exist. For the past 15 years we have pretty much only sailed in suites. We chose this cruise ... Read more

We have just returned from our first cruise with MSC on the Fantasia and although we enjoyed our 11 day excursion, it just didn't come up to the standards we had experienced on Carnival Cruise Ships. Ticketing and Flight connections ... Read more

We have been on a number of cruises with different companies, and this was the first time on MSC. Even though Fantasia ship itself is opulent and beautiful, and the cabin is very nice with lovely facilities, this does not make up for the ... 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
