First time cruisers - but not the last

Room Type: Balcony

We loved our cruise and the experience on the Divina.  Everything was very clean and well-organized.  We were surprised at the large number of foreigners - both passengers and MSC employees.  I estimate one third of the passengers were not from the US and 90% of the employees.  This created a cruise that was almost like a trip to Europe.  The ship employees were very efficient and friendly.  The only negative part of the trip was that the European passengers don't seem to understand the concept of lines and queuing.


Our room was a B3 balcony, 13050.  our 12 year old son slept comfortably on the convertible sofa.  Our room was always cleaned very quickly and to a high standard by our steward.  The food was always plentiful and never made any of us sick.  i really liked the fresh fruit selections in the buffet. 


Every excursion we did was organized through the cruise line and they all were enjoyable.  The only problem I had with the excursions was the cost to rent snorkel equipment at Great Stirrup Cay - it was $30 per user for really basic equipment, and then the snorkeling in the bay was pretty poor.


We enjoyed a couple of shows in the Pantheon theater - the Michael Jackson tribute was good, and so was the farewell night of Italian operas and classic ballet.

While waiting to get on the ship, went to Bayside. Recommend not doing that....

We took the shuttle to Chukka private beach. Get a chair as far away from the broken, blown out loud speaker as you can

We did the wreck and reef snorkeling. Everyone loved it.
