The Divina is a great ship. Atrium is super and all facilities (dining room, bars, cafés, pools, etc...) are very good. But, with 3600 passengers, it seems to be too crowded. On cruising days, it was difficult to find a spot at one ... Read more

This was our 5th cruise on the MSC Sinfonia which includes the South Bound, Genoa to Durban, Durban to Mauritius and back, as well as a few local Cruises and the North Bound from Cape Town To Venice. We actually prefer the longer cruises ... Read more

We are retired and live in a small town (Montagu) some 180 km from Cape Town and chose the cruise for its length of 21 days as well as for the countries visited culminating in Venice. The embarkation/disembarkation processes were well ... Read more

Cruised out of Miami in late April, 2017. Embarkation started at 1 pm and was on ship 30 minutes later. I noticed that most passengers in the check in line were not holding USA passports. This is important as you must be comfortable ... Read more

Chose this cruise as I particularly wanted to sail into Valetta. Have sailed with MSC before. This time boarding took over 2 hours in Genoa. I met people who said they had taken 4. This meant the cabin was ready as soon as we boarded. I ... Read more

This was the first cruise for my husband and I. We are both in our 40's. We traveled with friends of ours who had cruised on this ship previously. I had read a lot of reviews before starting this trip, and it was quite a mixed bag, so I ... Read more

As my partner and I have always wanted to see Petra and enjoy cruising with MSC, we thought this would be an ideal opportunity to take an extended holiday that would cover both, and also spend my partner’s birthday onboard. ... Read more

This was our second MSC cruise having been on the MSC Opera in 2015. The transfer from Abu Dhabi airport to the port was extremely disorganised. We couldn't believe how many people were crowding together outside the airport after ... Read more

First of all, the Divina is a beautiful ship with an amazing "family-like" crew. However, it was just not what we were expecting or used to. For the price though (buy one, get one passenger free sale) we were able to find ways ... Read more

We have had done two previous trips on board the Opera which was great. The MSC Sinfonia is great, we had a wonderful time. The entertainment crew on a ship makes a huge difference to your overall experience and was far better than the ... Read more

Embarkation/Disembarkation -------------------------- We landed early at Dubai airport. Fairly big queue at passport control, but emerged into the sunshine around 10:30am. We ignored the taxi people inside the terminal and just went ... Read more

We had never cruised with MSC and choose this one for price and a wedding anniversary but we were very disappointed. Embarkation went smoothly and we were allowed on the ship early due to the weather in Barcelona. The cabin was a decent ... Read more

We chose MSC to go away for Christmas largely because of the price. Having said that we paid over 3k for 11 nights, so not exactly a bargain. Where to start? Well we arrived at Milan Linate airport with no delays and only an hour and a ... Read more
