Not having too many cruise lines to chose from, for January, we picked MSC for the itinerary. We read reviews, good and bad, and thought we would go for it, as this would be the last time cruising in the Mediterranean. We were ... Read more

Many MSC fans will take issue with my review, but I write it to help cruisers who have traveled with other lines - for you, I believe you will rate your experience on this MSC ship as only average. But let me say some good things first- ... Read more

Selected this cruise as a late break when very little choices were available at the time. Initially we were very impressed with the speed of embarkation at Barcelona, but this was quickly dispelled by having to wait around for some time ... Read more

My husband and I have seen advertisements for the new MSC Seaside to debut later this year. Since the Seaside looks really appealing to us, we thought we should give MSC a try by cruising on the Divina. We called our travel agent who ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. We wanted to see the Middle East. It was extremely good value for money. The trip allowed us to see Dubai without going there specifically for a holiday. We flew Etihad to Dubai and had 2 days ... Read more

The watered down orange juice at the embarkation terminal set the standard for the whole cruise. Embarkation was disorganized as was just about everything else to do with this cruise. It was our first cruise and mostly certainly our last ... Read more

The ship itself is fabulous. The cabin we had (balcony) was comfortable, spacious enough and close to the centre of the ship. The entertainment in the evening was terrific and there were activities for everyone (if you chose to ... Read more

We choose this cruise because 300 people from our community were going. We usually go on 2 cruises a year. Embarkation was good, but disembarkation was a disaster at the Miami port. Ship was clean, but too many ... Read more

We loved our experience on the MSC Divina. We'd always wanted to do a holiday cruise and after checking prices, itineraries, perks and a few other things, we decided that MSC seemed to have the best bang for the buck. The Divina truly is ... Read more

Service was good but was not told that the tip of the restaurants in the hotel and paid separately. The ship had a lot of activities, games, dances, shows. Got to eat a lot and well, drinking well as the allegrissimo drinks package. ... Read more

Pre-trip - we had to ask for the itinerary about a week before we left and then received it in Spanish. When I asked for an English copy I was told there wasn't one yet a German lady on the coach had an English copy. The coach journey ... Read more

First of all, my expectations were somewhat lower than for other cruises on Princess & NCL. I had read numerous reviews about MSC's notoriously bad service and was prepared to experience what these other passengers went through. ... Read more

This cruise was a great deal for a family with two teenagers, and we got two very nice balcony staterooms for a great price for the holiday season. CONS: The ship had a very diverse crowd, which was quite interesting and nice, but keep ... Read more

The itinerary was of great interest since I hadn't been to four of the ports before. The status match program and price for single travelers also lured me to try this line. The ship is beautiful and the staff was great but the food was ... Read more
