MSC Divina is a great cruise ship....beautiful amenities and fantastic itinerary. Americans and Brits will be well served knowing this is a European cruise so many of the little touches one might see on an American Cruise Line aren't here. But that doesn't detract from the cruise. Be prepared for a cultural event and to take things in stride as you are on board with 3000 others from many different cultures. Habits and ideas collide at the buffet when it sometimes seems like chaos but is really just a bunch of people doing their own thing. All announcements are in 6 languages and other than the typical French, most attempt to speak English readily. The food is not fantastic but the itinerary and the atmosphere more than make up for it. Reminder that children cruise for free so you will probably see more of them than normal. The shops onboard are all high end so don't expect to do any souvenir shopping there. Be sure to invest in the Allegrisimo drink won't get a better bargain. Try not to compare this cruise line to an American one as you will surely be disappointed. But view it as an opportunity to spend time with people of many countries and enjoy the scenery.
