With enhanced entertainment, tweaked menus designed for the American palate and a crew hand-picked to offer a higher level of service, MSC Divina offers a Caribbean cruise experience that would feel right at home in the Mediterranean. Switzerland-based MSC Cruises doubled-down in the Caribbean in late 2013 with the MSC Divina, their largest and most cutting edge ship at the time. The Divina continues to sail a variety of Caribbean itineraries from Miami (including extended 14- and 21-night voyages), though it will be offering some Mediterranean itineraries in 2018. With rates that are often absurdly low compared to similar ships, the Divina is a great value for cruisers who are open to new experiences and have the proper mindset and expectations. Plus, kids 11 and under sail free on MSC (and tweens and teens 12 to 17 sail at reduced rates), making it a great deal for families.

Stepping aboard MSC Divina feels akin to a luxury hotel in Italy, and there's no other large cruise ship sailing from the US that looks quite like it. Throughout the ship, Italian sculpture and art lend an air of elegance, as do the photos of godmother Sophia Loren and other "divas" that inspired the name and décor. The most extravagant pieces of decor are the sparkling Swarovski crystal staircases that circle the lobby and atrium, creating a feel of class and luxury you rarely see on mainstream cruise ships.

MSC Divina Entertainment & Activities

But Divina isn't all about looks, and there are plenty of activities to keep cruisers engaged throughout their sailing. Arts and crafts, trivia, bingo, dance classes, cooking demonstrations, and Italian lessons are regularly on the schedule. A unique offering is the Wine Maker Experience, where each participant receives a bottle of their custom-created wine with personalized label. The kids programs feature I Puffi (the Italian name for The Smurfs) and a partnership with Lego. Grafitti's teen club is a perfect hideaway for tweens and teens. Adults Virtual World, home to a Formula 1 race car simulator and a 4D cinema, offers about 6 different movie rides.

The MSC Divina's entertainment is some of the best and most diverse at sea. There's a new show every night, each one a high-quality production featuring variety acts like acrobats, magicians, and even vaudeville-type artists. The larger-than-life Michael Jackson Starwalker caps off the cruise in style on the final night.

MSC Divina Dining

Of the four specialty dining venues on Divina, Eataly Steakhouse is by far the buzzed about. Other restaurants of note include The Eataly Pizzeria, which serves handmade-to-order thin-crust pizzas, and the Calumet and Manitou Buffets, where for 20 hours out of the day, passengers can order yet more superb pizza, plus burgers and a wide assortment of international cuisine. Freshly-made Venchi gelato is available both on the pool deck and in the Piazza del Doge lounge for small price.

MSC Divina Staterooms

Staterooms on MSC Divina are typical in size and amenities. Bathrooms are relatively spacious and offer a slightly larger than normal shower with swinging plastic doors rather than a curtain. Two outlets are provided by the desk, and an (a la carte) mini bar is stocked regularly. Cruisers looking for an upscale experience will find themselves right at home in the MSC Yacht Club, a dedicated, keycard access only space exclusively for suite passengers located at the front of the ship. Yacht Club guests enjoy a private lounge, restaurant and pool courtyard, along with the services of a concierge and private butler.

Pretty good cruise by LindaDrees

This is an Italian cruise line and many of the guests and employees are Italian - I would guess about 50%. Not understanding Italian, I found it difficult to understand waiters & even the cruise director. They also gave all instructions in 5 languages, which I found iritating. So, even though this is a very nice ship, I would not go on it again.

Different but Decent by BabsnBu

I would return to MSC if they had an itinerary/price that I could not find on another line. I've read reviews that said this line wasn't so good and we did not find that to be true. We did, however, find other lines to be better in quality and selections of food. The Buffet changed very little from day to day and offered mainly the same choices for the 11 days we were there. If you like Pizza, MSC does it best!

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

Sep 05, 2014

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.
