We had never been to Bermuda and had never sailed with MSC before, so we thought it was a good way to discover a couple of new things. The Divina is a beautifully decored ship, with attentive and smiling crew. Dining was great as we got ... Read more

Was on the the Divina Cruise for a week and was disappointed. The embarkment took almost 2 hours. One of the people in my group was held in a holding area for 3 hours due to a problem with her identification she had. They made her wait ... Read more

I took my wife on the Def Leppard cruise as a birthday celebration, and to give MSC a try, this was our 9th cruise... I'd read about all I could find about Divina prior to the cruise and so was aware of others misgivings. While ... Read more

I will start off saying that I have cruised on NCL, Royal Caribbean, Carnival and Celebrity and NEVER have I experienced anything remotely close to the HELL I experienced on the MSC Divina! I boarded the MSC Divina in Miami as part of ... Read more

On the Divina on a recent rock cruise. Been on lots of cruises but first with msc. As it was a specialist cruise, clearly did not have any choice of ship. Have to say I would not go with msc unless i had to. They simply don't compare to ... Read more

If I could give zero stars I would. Do not under any circumstances book a cruise with this cruise line. We were on a special cruise for Def Leppard. I was told by several people who booked the cruise that they were NOT informed that it was ... Read more

I cruised on the MSC Divina for the first time for the Def Leppard cruise. From the beginning, the employees were rude, unhelpful and uninformed. Check in was excessively long and they don't even let you provide your credit card for ... Read more

The ship is nice and the balcony cabines are looking good also. The food was low cost quality. The strongest point of this cruise was the staff, with special remarks for Miguel, the waiter in cigar bar. Ship and entertainment ... Read more

Came with great expectations - none were met. The food was shameful - no way there was a chef in the galley, a home cook could put more flavour and could cook more authentic ethnic food than what we received. The Indonesian bar and cabin ... Read more

My husband and I sailed on a theme-based cruise (Monsters of Rock) so we did not pick the cruise line. Having only cruised once previously (and many years ago), we went with no expectations. We had high hopes for this Italian-based line ... Read more

As this was a charter cruise we paid above market price for this cruise and knew it. But even so we were expecting a 5 star ship and cruise because of the way MSC Orchestra had been sold to us. Also because of Orchestras own advertising - ... Read more

The Italian staff on this ship were rude, arrogant and often told us lies. They need the sack! The Balinese staff, on the other hand were excellent - friendly, helpful, caring, considerate and could not do enough for you. The food was ... Read more
