Review summary

First cruise last year on Divina was one of our best. This cruise was probably the worst. Know before you go. Check with your travel agent or online sources before you sign up for this one. I hope this was just one of those fluke things and MSC returns Divina to the original splendor we enjoyed.

Service and Staff

2 out of 5
staff was tired and bordered on rude on several occasions. Ship seemed to be understaffed and staff was always hurrying to get the next thing done.

This was the best part of the trip. Marlon was super. Room always perfect never had to ask for anything. One of the best cabin attendants we've ever had.

Ship tip

Check with your travel agent on this one. First trip on Divina was excellent. This one the worst. Don't be fooled by loyalty point and free drink promotions. They have done away with afternoon cocktail party and separate breakfast dining. Drinks are only the very bottom well drinks and no specialty coffee and you still pay 15% Everyone is now black card status.

Disembarkation

1 out of 5
Express exit was a total mess. No supervision, people stuffed into small room around centrum and pushing and shoving to get in a single file line. Announcments were non-existent and it was everyone for themselves. Just the slightest supervision and organiztion would have helped.
