MSC = Marvelous, Spectacular Cruise

Sail Date: April 01, 2014

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Absolutely do NOT be leery of taking this cruise because of bad reviews. My husband and I went on this beautiful ship last week and have absolutely NO COMPLAINTS!

Pros: Give this cruiseline a try. We are very pleased that we did and highly recommend the MSC Divina.

Cons: Be aware that category B1 does not have a little sofa as pictured on the MSC website\, only a small cube at a desk.

Recommends MSC Divina? Yes!

Ship Quality
Embarkation was a breeze; we were on the ship by noon and in our cabins by 1:45. Luggage arrived at 2:30.
The ship itself is new\, clean\, elegantly decorated and comfortable. Even though there were almost 4000 passangers aboard with us\, the ship did not seem crowded. We stayed on board in Jamaica and Bahamas and thoroughly enjoyed our own private ship.
Food and Dining
The food was outstanding. Never once were our meals delivered cold or not cooked to our liking. The dining rooms have wonderful ambiance. We sat at a table for 6 at the first seating\, eating from 6:00 - 8:15. We also ate in the dining room for most breakfasts and a couple of lunches. The buffet's carving station was the tastiest choice for lunch most days. Never went to the specialty resturrants.
Cabin / Stateroom
Our cabin was in the lowest ranking of balcony category. It was plenty big enough for the two of us. It was beautifully decorated\, the bed was king sized and firm\, just the way we like it. The pillows sure could use an upgrade; too soft and bumpy. Balcony was small but nice with 2 comfortable chairs and a foot rest. Great place for early morning coffee. The bathroom was very bright and clean with plenty of storage\, shower was fine for us with awesome glass doors but for large people it would be very close. Plenty of room in closets and under bed for luggage storage. Great flat screen TV.
Service and Staff
ALL crew and staff\, including the captain\, went out of their way to be friendly and helpful!
THE SHOWS! Do not miss even one. They were all spectacular! Wonderland and Michael Jackson were unbelievable!!!!
The majority of passengers seemed to be from Europe and definitely added to the charm of this Italian cruise line.
We went on two excursion booked through the ship. Way to do it! as we were led by a crew member from the ship who stayed with us (even snorkled with us). We also got priority when tendered in Grand Cayman.
