First of all, I'll say what Divina is not. It is certainly NOT the prettiest or flashiest ship I've ever sailed on. It does NOT have the huge WOW factor that so many of today's mega-ships provide. It is NOT the freshest most up-to-datest vessel afloat, and in fact, much of the ship looks like it is somewhat past ready for a visit to dry dock, a fact especially noticeable in hallways and stateroom areas where carpet was noticeably worn and obviously due for replacement.

What Divina IS, however, outweighs these small negatives and left us beyond happy with our experience on this 12-night Panama Canal cruise. First you have the incredible value that MSC provides in the Caribbean cruise market. My first MSC cruise was aboard the Seaside in 2019 and was surprised by what a great cruise experience the ship provided. This was our second sailing with MSC and while Divina is an older, smaller vessel, we were not disappointed with this cruise experience.

STATEROOM: Our stateroom was a typical balcony stateroom, perhaps felt just a bit tighter than some of the rooms we've sailed in -- I attribute this primarily to the fact that the bed is right at the entrance with the seating area located near the balcony doorway which created something of a bottleneck as we entered. Very minor and probably just a matter of our preference. Storage was quite adequate for our clothing ... bathroom was well laid out with ample storage as well. Underbed was great for stowing luggage.
