We’ve been on Divina in back to back years. The good: Embarkation Room Stewards Room size and layout Shower doors are great. Eataly was fantastic food and service Itinerary is good Price The okay: Main Dining food was okay Buffet food was okay Disembarkation was ok The Bad: (Caveat, we come from an entertainment background) Shows were poorly choreographed Opera singers were fantastic but may not be aimed at demographic on board Show singers struggled with English lyrics Dancers were not in sync and did not seem to commit to choreography. Lighting was off, spots not tight and the stairs overused Sound was not EQ’d properly for the beautiful theatre. Thin sound, no low end. Bar and bar staff Staff seemed poorly utilized, took 1hr to get a gelato and drink at pool bar on quieter time. On our second cruise found the bartenders irritable (likely due to one at the bar and two in the back goofing off.) Both cruises started running out of mini bar drinks and snacks by 7th day. We want to like MSC but have not been attracted by much more than the price.

Close but not quite there.

Cabin Review

Interior Stateroom – Fantastica
Cabin I2 10035
Last year we did an Aurea balcony, this year an interior Fantastica.

Rooms are a great size with a good layout.
