October 2016 - MSC Divina to Caribbean - Eastern
I knew this was going to be a great cruise as soon as I boarded. The dramatic entryway is breathtaking. I will post pictures of the staircase. It is amazing. Words don't mean much so I am going to attach photos.
The cruise itself was great. We went to Grand Turk instead of Bahamas because of Hurricane Matthew, St. Maartan and Puerto Rico. All beautiful ports of call.
We had a wonderful time swimming, shopping and sampling the food.
Our cabin (9267) is an aft facing balcony which was a change for us. We usually get a regular balcony. We had an amazing steward, Roque Alexander Ortez Tome. He takes his job very seriously and goes out of his way to make sure everything is perfect in the rooms. Hats off to him.
The food on board was very good. The buffet is quite large and has plenty to offer. We attended the early 6:00 p.m. seating for dinner in the dining room. The food is very good but the portions seem small. European portions I assume. Overall, I give the MSC Divina a 5 star rating. We will be back to sail on the new MSC Seaside in 2018.
