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.

Great boat, great service, good food, poor ports. by Cruiser35644591

We knew going into this that Genoa and Marseille are Detroit equivalents but excited for the other ports of call. We were unsure of the MSC cruise line so we tempered our expectation, although we were incredibly satisfied and impressed with their boarding procedures and efficiency. They put Norwegian (our only cruise comparison) to shame. All in all a great trip even with the 2 disappointing ports.

We enjoyed the cruise, excursions with MSC were disappointing, food was nothing special, and not many English speaking cruisers. I won’t take another MCS cruise.

Okay if you are not traveling with young children by kchocho

Overall a basic cruise, but not met my expectations as I traveled with 3 small children, 3 grandparents and my spouse and it was just not small kid friendly. If it had just been adults or even just my spouse and I, it would have been better. There was no "down-time" as every day was a new port and no real activities for the little ones.

MSC is the Greyhound of cruise lines by alesko21wbl

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Ship and suites were tired. Reminiscent of an older Vegas casino. Staff was dour. Only formal dining room people were pleasant and customer oriented. Long lines at reception desk, phone was nver answered. Tour staff was combative. Most tours were a bad value. Poor tour guides, multiple languages on board diminishing information transmitted and little content. The disembarkation for daily tours was a nightmare. Hundreds of people pushing down one stairwell to be bottlenecked by one cruise card scanner before ship exit. A general and irritable cattlecall. All tours returned generally at the same time so onboard procedure was just as bad. Buffet lines consequently backed up with waits. Inside was a zoo. Europeans have a push, shove and no manners culture (at least this group at these prices). It was like taking a Greyhound bus from coast to coast. If price is all that matters, the cruise is ok. Too bad because it is a good itinerary.

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.

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!
