  3. MSC Divina
Choose this crew based on the itinerary. Have sailed the MSC Divina 4 times before and this time the inconsistencies were evident but given the low price point, we still had fun. Was the cruise perfect? NO. There were plenty of 10's and Plenty's of 0's and stuff in between. First the 10's for us. Embarkation was perfect. The bars and bar staff on the middle of the ship were awesome. Casino and casino bar staff were awesome. The sports bar was fun and entertainment except when people bowled. why stick a bowling alley in an open air sports bar? SMH. Galaxy Shushi restaurant was awesome with food and staff. La Cantina di Bacco and the made to order brick oven pizza awesome. Go see Rosario for a great pie. Zero's - MDR food and staff at our table were horrible. Went 3 times at the beginning of the cruise only. Each time we waited over 1.5 hours for dinner and drinks were never replinshed. Food quality was really inconsistent. Service was so bad they comped a specialty restaurant. Never went back after that. The ship is 6 years old and it is starting to show its age. The staff does a great job of maintaining it clean but you can see wear and tear over the years. Entertainment was okay on the Divina. Nothing spectacular but nothing horrible although the tribute to Tina Turner was highly questionable. Overall an average cruise but again given the price point compared to other cruise lines, you can see where the difference is missing. Would we sail MSC cruises again? Not sure anymore.
