The MSC Diving is an absolutely beautiful ship and all of the ports of call were wonderful - if only things on the ship were as good. Cons: 1. The food in the buffet - deck 16. The catering is for the European clientele and not for ... Read more

We just returned from an 18 day transatlantic cruise on the msc divina and it was the cruise from hell!!! We are experienced cruisers and this was, by a mile, the worst company we have ever sailed with. Although we could write a book about ... Read more

We have never had the time to do a Transatlantic cruise before, so when we saw a MSC Divina Yacht Club offer at an excellent price we jumped at it, a 21 night cruise from Miami to Rome with a night stop over in New York, and a chance to ... Read more

Outstanding itinerary at value for money pricing was the initial attraction. Sailing into New York Harbour with an overnight stay proved memorable. Weather precluded a Bermuda stop which meant six sea days in a row to the Azores. However ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we were naturally a little apprehensive about how we would cope with such a long time on board. Our fears were allayed considerably by the friendliness, courtesy and efficiency of the staff. The ship was ... Read more

Five stars for this cruise! Was it perfect? No.... But, I am comparing it with a crossing from Santos to Hamburg with the same ship 2 years ago and the MSC Magnifica has definitely improved. Besides that, once you get used to the ... Read more

I have been at the MSC Poesia before so I knew what to expect in terms of condition of the ship. The Poesia is a very elegant and beautiful ship. I had booked the fantasia category and I had a very nice balcony cabin on the 9th floor. ... Read more

Previous reviewers made me wonder if we'd made a mistake booking this cruise again (we'd enjoyed it so much 2 years ago on the Melody) but we need not have worried. Also having paid a very low price we expected that there may have been ... Read more
