New Years Eve Cruise 2016

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was our 1st time on MSC. We have done 2 other NY Eve cruises, both on Royal Caribbean. The Divina is a beautiful ship, built in 2012. Embarkation and disembarkation both went well. The entertainment is excellent, equal to and in parts, better than RC. I would have given a 5 star rating but only gave 4 stars based on several factors. (1) My spouse has a significant gluten allergy and the main dining staff were totally unprepared to address her needs. (2) The food in the main dining area was, overall, bland. (3) They do not offer "anytime dining" unless you want to pay extra (4) The internet is slow. Also, if you stop in Nassau, do NOT waste your time & money on the excursion titled "Panoramic Nassau". Very boring, total waste of time!

The ship was beautiful, the staff was 100% great. The food was fair (but the pizza at the buffet was our option and great).  The entertainment was good sometime and great other times.

The Good, The Bad and the disappointment of Hilton

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The shows were our favourite, they were great.

The service in the dining rooms was very good, from our wait staff, to D.R. mgr. they tried to appease us in every request.

The elevators were big issues. The "ding" of an elevator about to open was so low, that with all the people waiting you could not hear them.  We waited sometimes up to 10 minutes to get an elevator that could accommodate a couple of people.

The food left a lot to be desired.  Small portions in the dining room, soups that did not taste or resemble what was described on the menu, desserts that looked and tasted different from description,  seafood over cooked, etc. etc.

The shows were outstanding! Food excellent! Ship Beautiful! Great job!

The dining room waiters were very efficient and cordial, which made our dining experience special. The shows are the best by far on any cruise line we have traveled with.

Excellent Experience on MSC Divina

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

Excellent cruise. Very happy with food, service, and entertainment. We will definitely come back. 

Food: very good quality - desert is great, many different types of food. Drinks in buffet are not impressive - coffee has no flavor, hot water is often run out, fruit juice doesn't taste good. 

Service: rooms are cleaned frequently. Staffs are very friendly. Room service can be slow. 

Excursions: lack of communication, a lot of confusion, no clear explanation on what's going on when there is delay. Some activities was cancelled or delayed.

The Divina is beautiful. My fourth cruise on the ship and it keeps getting better. The food is good, the entertainment is exceptional. All the staff that we were around went out of their way to help with whatever we needed.

Not Impressed

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The cruise ship is beautiful, sparkling clean, luxurious. The crew was all fantastic, very attentive, cordial. Vendors were Very nice and serviceable.

On the negative side:

Checking-in was a terrible experience, too many long-winding lines; 3 different endless winding lines. The checking-in system must be improved. The Wi-Fi connection was very poor and too expensive for the poor service provided. The so called CHEF has no idea what a PAELLA dish is or even looks like; he must look for the recipe. Overall, the food in the main dining was very extensive but not so goodl. The on-board activities were pitiful; bingo and exercises... not all inclusive. As I've experienced on other cruises; swimpool games, dancing classes, cooking, glass blowing demos, ice carving, karaoke, manual arts, etc. I must point out our assigned stateroom cleaning crew, Rocco, did a great job, he was fabulous, respectful and had a great sense of humor. "The Best of Atlantis" tour only takes you to the hotel, no showing of part of the island as it says. You just see what's on the way to the hotel. Note for New Cruise Ships: Improvement to shower size is a must. It is almost impossible for over-weight persons to shower without causing chaos. I am not an overweight person, yet the space provided is so minimal. It is my believe that overweight people are being discriminated. This problem exists on ALL cruise ships. I thought it should be addressed.

Favorite part was the ship, the beauty, cleanliness and the entertainment!

 

my least favorite was to many children, babies, they were every where!  I saw a mother take her babies diaper off so that he could pee on the deck!  I also saw one mother breast feeding in plain sight at the pool, no modesty.  Now I breast fed my babies, but I concealed my breast.  I find that many people were rude, pushy, lacking basic manners.  I realize that you can't control your customers, I'm only venting.  Your emploees were excellent, kind, curtious and always helpful.

Needs improvement

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

overall food does not compare with other cruise lines. General daily maintenance i.e. carpet shampooing is neglected. Never been on a cruise before that didn't have a card in the room with the cabin attendants name or how to contact. Had two people in our group needing a wheelchair to board, waited just over an hour to get an available pusher, this despite one of those people holding "black member" status. MSC before expanding service in the U.S. would be wise to observe their competition.

I would recommend this cruise to other people for sure!  The dining room still needs improvement.  Too many kids running around the floors inside the ship.  The casino was great!!

There are two hot tubs on deck 16 towardsthe back of this ship that are never crowded. A fun place to hang out with a group of friends

If you want to avoid all the hustle & noise there is the Garden Pool (infinity Pool) at the back of the ship that is perfect to get away from all the madness. This is were we stayed all week.

Don't miss the Theater entertainment every night! It's Broadway on board. I live in New York City and the shows are in par with Broadway shows, no kidding! Don't miss having some pizza at the Pizza Place on the 6th Floor, the BEST PIZZA ever!
