I really enjoyed this cruiseline

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

This was my 3rd cruise and each cruise I have been on has been with a different line. I really liked MSC cabins they have been the most spacious of the three cruise lines I have been on. Yes the bed in our cabin for the 3rd person was a bunk bed. The food was also better than the other cruise lines I have been on. I enjoyed the buffet as well as the restaurant food. I felt it was well seasoned. I hate bland food. I will say that the ship was entirely booked up and I was told that MSC ships are usually booked up. It was very crowded and the elevators were very slow. I was travelling with someone in a wheelchair so that meant that we usually had to wait on the elevator 2 or 3 times before we could actually get on. Embarkation and Disembarkation was relatively easy. On Disembarkation we used the early disembarkation and it was very easy and preferable because it kept us from waiting in the baggage claim area as you have to carry your own bags. We travelled with children 13 years, 8 years, and 10 years. The 8 and 10 year olds did not like the kids club. They felt it was run like a daycare. Ship entertainment was good. I especially liked the Treasure Island show and the King of Pop tribute to Michael Jackson was pretty good. Majority of crew was very friendly.

Cruising in Style

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

I did not have one favorite part. There were many...the décor, entertainment, the many dance venues.I also enjoyed the European flavor. I had many opportunities to speak French, Spanish and Italian.

I do think more attention should be paid to the handicapped, there being a need for a handrail in the Pantheon theatre. Also some historical background should be given in the daily bulletin regarding the places to be visited. In addition, I felt a sensory overload, especially on the elevators..too many lights, mirrors and reflections!Happy

The favorite part was the nightly entertainment in the theater.  First Class Entertainers (this of course include the Cruise Director).  Attentive, well trained staff everywhere.

The only confusing thing was to reach the Black Crab Up restaurant. Not all elevators get you there.

It would have been a good idea to put a sign or a note on the map to advise which elevator to use.

The cabin was roomy.  Good closet space.  Staff friendly and helpful.  Many choices for evening entertainment.

Enjoyed using the jacuzzis.  Buffet selection was good.  Dining room staff was too busy to give much attention.  Had to ask several times for coffee at the end of the dinner.

Ship beautiful and kept clean.

Service was hit and miss

Our dinner staff was good. Breakfast and lunch on the other hand tended to be slow and poor. Example; breakfast, got waffles and bacon. Waffles came, bacon arrived 20 minutes later. took 25 minutes to get a refill on a coffee. The list go on......

Think before u book MSC for your cruise

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Well, where do I begin? The ship was very modern and beautiful but very dark and lacking personality. Easy to find your way around after the first few hours on oard. Main dining room for dinner was a bit dark and the food was not good. I would say out of 7 nights I liked 2 meals. Desserts were ok. Soups, terrible, just plain weird. The buffet restaurant served the SAME FOOD  everyday! Very boring very repetitious. Had to fight the crowds for a table at every meal. Husband and I almost dreaded going to eat because of it. Waiters at buffet completely do not speak! Everyone on oard is speaking in another language which we expected on this Italian cruise line but did not expect all an announcements and tv commercials in 8 languages. We had a balcony cabin which was nice. Loved our room porter. UT spoke no english. Casino is too small and slots are tight,  no one was winning. Bars are overcrowded and NOT ENOUGH TO KEEP U. IS ON THIS SHIP! Too many people for the size of the ship. Now, thank god for the shows every night or we would have had to dive overboard from boredom! Shows were fantastic, mainly singing and dancing. U never see the cruise director except for the tc morning show and the beginning announcements at the theatre show. Getting off at the ports was easy enough but the ship is never on schedule. We were pressured constantly to buy the drink package and for godsakes don't order the horrible room service or the the I tenet that are bothe  downright awful. We kept going back to our room out of boredom and kids sail free so good luck at the pools and the ice cream stations. We will continue cruising on other cruise lines and never with MSC again. Most boring 7 day cruise yet, we wanted off after 4 days. Nervous

MSC Divina is a beautiful ship the shows are beautiful the staff has gotten much better since our first time on it.  We enjoy cruising with MSC they have great prices.  We also enjoyed a Dominican duo they had last year which was incredible.  Unfortunately, they were not on the ship this year and we truly missed having that music to dance with.

we travel with our older children (not yet teens) and the club activities were appealing to them too. The personnel at the club was very accomodating.  Food was delicious both at the assigned restaurant and buffet.  They probably need more personnel to clean up the tables during rush hours.  Shows were excellent.  The beverage package included in our offer was a good choice.

My husband and I plus our 3 children (ages 4, 6, 7) absolutely loved our time on the Divina. It is a beautiful ship which is kept very clean. The shows were fun, specially the Michael Jackson one. The stuff is very polite and helpful. Our room was always in order, and our food in the dining room was always hot. The portions were perfect, as it wasn't too much food nor too little. Hot Wings for free in the sports bar! they are great! Getting off the ship was a little line or you need to wait in a spot for the excursion to leave all together. It was not disorganized at all, lines are to be expected in every cruise line as everyone is trying to get off the ship. When it was my sons birthday, they had brought the cake I purchased and the waiters came around singing happy birthday with a eukelele. We had a terrific time, we booked some excursion through the ship and some independently, all four were excellent. My daughter wants to move to Jamaica when she grows up lol and I want to go explore Mexico a little more in depth. I recommend this cruise for all, we are already looking to book with their new ship Seaside for next June!

Poor customer service

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

The food was great. Customer service "guest services" needs improvement. I felt that if you spend the money to enjoy your vacation you should enjoy it. Being sick on your vacation is not an ideal one. Especially when it could have been prevented. We met other customers who encountered issues on this cruise as well. Having a flooded bathroom & inhailing the mouldy fumes is not an experience we paid for.

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!
