Our third cruise but the first with MSC. We had a wonderful time on the MSC Divina it’s a very lovely ship. They are more European style it was a different experience for us. We were on the 13th level (even if it’s under the pool area it wasn’t that noisy) and they call it the CUPIDO, we were at mid-ship best place to be if you don’t want to feel too much waves!! We had the one hour BALI massage, very nice. We tried the 4D theatre twice, the films are very short but it’s a nice experience to do on a ship, the Canyon film is the best. We also enjoyed a film on the big screen outside on the Friday we saw Maleficent with Angelina Jolie, the films they showed every night were very recent. I did try the Formula 1 should’ve tried it again to do a better time but it was a great experience. We tried the Pizza Eataly, the pizza was good. Andy gave us a very good service at the Black Crab restaurant we ate there almost every night. The buffet was good and we liked to sit in the back of the restaurant for the panoramic view. Thank’s to Agus he was our concierge and did a good job taking care of the room for us.

The ship is quite big, they don’t have that many boutiques and that’s OK because you have plenty to shop at every port. We tried the Casino a few times maybe will have better luck next time!

Our first stop was in Falmouth, Jamaica this was the second time for us and we enjoyed walking around the port and checking the boutiques, we came back to enjoy the ship since a lot of the cruisers were out on excursion. Our second stop was in Cartagena, Colombia it’s a very clean place and they are very well organize for the excursions at least 44 buses were there on our arrival, we only went for a walk nearby they had a little restaurant with boutiques and a nice place to walk outside. Then we stopped in Cristobal, Panama and we took an excursion to visit the old Panama City, our guide Beni she was just great! We enjoyed our tour and we saw that they are doing a lot of renovations so in a near future it will be a very nice place to visit. Then we stopped in Puerto Limon, Costa Rica we took the train and river boat ride not too impress with this tour, and the area of Puerto Limon is not very clean, but they have a lot of banana trees!! Our last stop was in Cozumel, Mexico this was our first time in this port wow a lot of boutiques and shops there my wife and I shopped for a couple of ours and came back on the ship with a few bags!!

We had lovely weather just on the last day it was cloudy, windy and a bit of rain but it was OK we were on our way back home. Also just a note the ship is smoker friendly (we don’t smoke) but we still have enjoyed this cruise.
