I am a great fan of this ship,and unhestitatingly recommend it to anyone looking for actual enrichment and cultural /religious learning. I have been on several previous voyages,and all were wonderful down to the very last detail. The food?fresh,varied,healthy,served with a smile in the restaurants or in the covered verandah. Cleanliness?the ship was spotless The itinerary?the ship ,being smaller,can access ports and harbours the large cruiseliners cannot. We were able to go to places not used to large crowds/tourists,and received a more genuine experience of the culture.Much thought has gone into the choice of ports,and there are inevitably some very interesting and less-visited spots on each itinerary. The staff?helpful,friendly,professional The recreational areas ?(gym,pool etc) More on the basic side,but most days are spent on land and one tends to walk and gain exercise that way. there are daily yoga classes.The gym has adequate and well-maintained eqipment. Library? Amazing collection of books,reference titles,decent novels,magazines all located in a comfortable room with a window wall....very pleasant, Ambience? the ship is refined but casual in feel.No stuffy formal nights,no screaming kids (in fact none at all),no gambling,nice live music every evening and night.They do have trivia sessions and movie nights. The cabins? Quite adequate. Read Less

The MSC Divina is a beautiful, new cruise ship. Our balcony cabin was very well appointed and appeared spacious, the best of our 8 cruises. The wait, room & reception staffs were courteous and knowledgeable. All the entertainment/shows on the ship were top shelf, many with a classical slant. The excursions were well done, without exception, and included Casablanca, Morocco; Tenerife, Canary Islands (our favorite); Funchal, Portugal; Malaga, Spain; Rome and Genoa, Italy. There were reasons this cruise was less inexpensive than Royal Caribbean International and Norwegian cruise lines. 1. The food at lunch and dinner in the dining room was, at best, mediocre. 2. The cafeteria breakfast was crowded; had a shortages of plates, silverware or napkins; and juices offered only one morning. 3. Drinks of any sort, aside from coffee and tea at breakfast, were at additional cost, that incudes water. 4. We like coffee after our evening meal. It isn't served and was ordered from a bar/cafe arriving, inevitably, lukewarm. 4. The ship boards at every port. Over 800 boarded at Barcelona, about the same number at Genoa and hundreds at Rome. After every port departure the newbies toured the ship and swamped the common areas. 5. Reception told us there were about 200 passengers with English as their 1st language. If not with a group this can be a lonely journey. If you are from North America we would suggest Royal Caribbean or Norwegian. Well worth the added cost. Read Less
