MSC Divina Christmas Cruise 2018 Room 13095:- Clean and in good order, towels replaced twice daily and you even get beach / sun bed towels. Down side to room:- Pool deck above and overhangs so you don’t get the sun on the balcony. As it’s the pool deck above the chairs and tables are put out anywhere between 5.30 to 7am and there not gentle about it so it noisy with chairs and tables being dragged and thrown down. At night children running and / or people walking with heels on the noise resonates through into the room. Party’s / music around the pool deck at night go on till 12.15am which you can also hear the sound of thud thud thud till then. The hand sanitisers. Very few of then and they didn’t always work and certainly weren’t enforced, although the ship was clean even at Christmas with a lot of children on board. The main restaurant:- Food predominantly American was invariably cold, service wasn’t as it should of been “the excuse was it’s Christmas and they were busy. If they now the boat is full put staff in short staffed areas, Buffet:- Good food normally good variety of nationalities but yet again predominantly American. Nice that you could get lemonade and juices all day at no cost as well as the usual tea’s and coffee’s. If you are a pudding/cake fan (like me) prepare to be disappointed as it’s the same nearly everyday in the buffet. The up side was at 4pm the scones and biscuits were put out but be quick as like everything else people are very greedy and have plate fulls. There was also an ice cream dispenser at the very back of the pool deck help yourself “when it’s working”. Destinations were good, embarkation and disembarkation were easy “but remember to take a photo ID with you when you get of or you might have trouble getting past boarder control. We picked up with the cruise out of Miami so it was predominantly/ Americans / Hispanics The only thing which I found wrong is that every time the boat stopped, people would go mad at breakfast time and taking loads and I mean loads of food with them on an excursion, which would probably never get eaten. People do eat to excess on the cruise “but that’s only probably me with that one”. Overall impression you pay for what you get it’s not a Princess cruise or Cunard it was a good value for money cruise with good destinations but I felt a few more staff needed and a better menu in the main restaurant with hotter food.

Room 13095:- Clean and in good order, towels replaced twice daily and you even get beach / sun bed towels.

Down side to room:-

Pool deck above and overhangs so you don’t get the sun on the balcony.

As it’s the pool deck above the chairs and tables are put out anywhere between 5.30 to 7am and there not gentle about it so it noisy with chairs and tables being dragged and thrown down.

At night children running and / or people walking with heels on the noise resonates through into the room.

Party’s / music around the pool deck at night go on till 12.15am which you can also hear the sound of thud thud thud till then.

The hand sanitisers. Very few of then and they didn’t always work and certainly weren’t enforced, although the ship was clean even at Christmas with a lot of children on board.

The main restaurant:- Food predominantly American was invariably cold, service wasn’t as it should of been “the excuse was it’s Christmas and they were busy. If they now the boat is full put staff in short staffed areas,

Buffet:- Good food normally good variety of nationalities but yet again predominantly American. Nice that you could get lemonade and juices all day at no cost as well as the usual tea’s and coffee’s.
