Don't Believe Naysayers; Excellent for First-Timers

Hubby and I booked Divina as first-timers, and we almost didn't. What a MISTAKE it would have been to miss out on this. First, it is important to read the literature and know your options. The buffet around the pool ...

This was our first cruise, and I have to say that I had some reservations about taking one. I didn’t know if I’d like being “trapped” on a ship, not able to go where I wanted, but after seven days on the ...

This was my first cruise. We arrived at the port at 11:30 using Jiffy Jeff transportation. Well The terminal was packed as it was a partially chartered ship most of the group (claim 800 people) many of which ...

Great Ship, Friendly Staff, Nice Itinerary, Below Average Food

This was our third cruise aboard the Divina, so we knew what to expect. The Showroom entertainment is as good as any, and better than most, of the 100, or so, cruises we have taken. The ship is elegant and well ...

Deficient Client Relations and Poor Management

The Divina Hosts 4 000 'guests', which is way too much for the services it can deliver. There are long waiting times at the elevators, when getting off, at the buffet, at the excursion office desk, everywhere. In ...

First Time Cruising, and Will Certainly Do It Again
