First I'd like to say that I read a lot of negative reviews about the Divina and I was a bit worried. However that quickly changed as soon as we were bording the ship and saw all the employees wearing white gloves and dark coats. It felt ... Read more

This was my 20th cruise, the other 19 were on either RCCL, Celebrity or Princess. Without a doubt MSC is a very poorly managed cruise line. The ship itself is very nice, primarily because its less than two years old. Besides the ship there ... Read more
