We chose this cruise because of the ports offered. On being to Panama. Thai was an 11 night cruise. The ship was elegantly decorated. The crew was not supportive at all. Room was that of other cruise lines. Lacing cabin clean. One perk I always enjoy is the towel animals offered on other cruise lines. Not here. If you are looking to rest and just enjoy the ports this is the cruise. there are few ...

If this Italian cruise line wants to penetrate US market, it has a lot to learn and improve. We selected this 11 day Panama cruise because the price was good but soon realized you get what you pay for. The service was poor everywhere except for the dining room. Waiters rarely get our order or billing correctly.. Very poor selection at the buffet and most counters closed half the time. Had really ...

The ship is glamorous and full of bling. Guests are mostly European. They seem to have more fun than on American ships. The nightlife jumps. The Divina is immaculate and the service is excellent. Announcements are in five languages and the menu international. We were in the Yacht Club. It’s simply wonderful. This is our second time and we are booked for third. The main ship is much ...

I picked this ship for the itinerary and after reading some of the reviews I was a little nervous about going. Boarding was a breeze, the best one ever, just walked the line and disembarkation was smooth. The ship was beautiful and clean. The staff was great and super friendly. The shows were good some were more enjoyable that others but that is the way it is on all cruise ships. The same with ...

We chose this cruise because of the great itinerary. I traveled with my partner, mother and aunt, sister and brother in law. We all booked Bella Interiors last August, linked our bookings. In December, we were thrilled when we received free upgrades to balcony staterooms! However, like so many have mentioned, their website/customer service needs some work. Nothing we couldn't figure out and ...

I choose the cruise because l liked the places it visited. When we arrive to pick up the ship in Miami the guys that take the suitcases asked for a tip without even touching the cases got the impression that if l did not give him any he was not going take the cases not a good start complained to the ship they washed there hands of it. Got on the ship it was beautiful inside. I paid all inclusive ...

What a great experience!! The ship was absolutely beautiful in its décor and Venues were plentiful! The food was phenomenal in the dinning room and the best we have had in the buffet! We always managed to find seating in the buffet and in venues after searching a bit. The staff were absolutely pleasant and attentive to our needs, except for face clothes. We only ever got 1 a day, even though we ...

My husband and I chose this cruise after a very stressful year full of loss and trauma. We wanted to do something simple and a cruise seemed to fit that description. We don't usually cruise. We did go on one cruise on NCL to Bermuda and we were presently surprised by the variety of food options, no need for formal clothes and the variety of ages. On this cruise to the Caribbean on the MSC ...

I've done six cruises, Royal caribian, Norwegian, Costa, and now MSC Divina. It was a 12 day cruise to the Panama Canal and Columbia including some islands. Overall the food was ok but not great in the dining room. Buffet was overwhelming. The shows were horrible, the only show I enjoyed was the Michael Jackson show. Two nights of opera that's a little too much. The Pirate show was ...
