  • Cabin Type: Interior Stateroom

Just back from. 7 day cruise on the Divina. We had some reservations with MSC based on some of the terrible reviews we have read. We have been on 49 cruises and MSC is right up there with Princess and Holland America who we have sailed the most with.

Based on our cruising experience let me state right now, DON'T BELIEVE THE BAD REVIEWS. The food, entertainment and service were all excellent. Let me say that when we say excellent food, it's in relation to cruise line food which can't compare to a 5 star restaurant in NYC or Chicago. That being said the food was as good as any food we ever had on any cruise line.

The entertainment is very high energy with themed musical reviews ending on the last night with the fantastic Michael Jackson show. There were some really good groups performing in the lounges, we especially liked the Ameritalian duo that performed in the La Luna lounge, we caught them every night before the main show.

The Divina is a beautiful ship and is kept spotless, you see housecleaning staff everywhere you go on the ship polishing, cleaning and vacuuming.

One thing that was a little hard getting use to was that there were no urinals, only just stalls with toilets in the all the men's rooms, this is a European thing and no big deal.

Also a little different is that the usual MSC cruise out of Miami will have 50-70% American passengers the rest being mainly Italian, German and other Europeans and some Asians, no bids deal with this either.

Props also to MSC for their loyalty match program. We were upgraded to Black Card status based on our Elite status with Princess. What a great idea and promotion.

We take at least 3 cruises a year and we will be booking MSC for at least 1 a year from now on.

Very nice inside cabin with plenty of closet and drawer space. Slept like a baby on a very comfortable matress. Cabin service was excellent.
