Worst ever!

This was the worst Cruise line I've ever been on. I took my 20 year old son on it for his first cruise and was embarrassed. The ship's elevator kept breaking down. They changed our itinerary and we couldn't stop at ...

Just Okay

Good price. Six days five night cruise was $179. . Embarkation was average. It takes a bit of time for 2500 people to board a ship so that was not remarkable either way. When we arrived onto the ship we were ...

Average experience

Well first of all I want to say that the Coronavirus did not impact our cruise whatsoever. We didn't even know about the chaos at home until we disembarked from our cruise on March 14. We booked this "spring ...

Great cruise!

We spent 7 nights on the Divina and had a fine time. The food was just ok but when you're cooking for thousands of people, you've got to keep things pretty generic. Finding a table at the buffet was sometimes hard ...
