MSC Divina Cruise Review by Tbodaly
- Sail Date: February 2019
- Destination: Eastern Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Fantastica Balcony Stateroom
We booked a balcony Fantastica room and were pleasantly surprised by its spaciousness. We were very surprised that theroom was cleaned two times per day and the bed turned down at night - nice touch.
We did not get the drink package and were more than okay having 12 drink tickets each. We could have whatever beer we wanted and they honored the tickets for frozen drinks. I have a lot of respect for the "abuse" the bar staff took from guests. A lot of guests were so impatient and unsympathetic towards the staff that it made me very sad. I pulled a few staff aside and gave then words of encouragement. MSC does need to hire more staff.
We also appreciated the attempt by staff to control the lounge chair situation and removing towels after 30 minutes of non-use.
The Divina is very clean and sparkly.
What surprised us was how quiet the ship was at night. Compared to how many people were aboard, there was hardly anyone in the bars. We thought it would be loud and quite the party going on. We find it very relaxing.
The entertainment staff went out of their way to entertain. They were always high energy and had a smile for you but weren't pushy to participate.
I loved that you could get professional pictures taken with various backgrounds. The photographers were great and made you feel comfortable.
Over all, we had an excellent time and would choose MSC again

AntiguaWe took a 30 minute bus tour to our boat and then about a 10 minute ride to the location. The water is only waist high so you can see the stingrays easily. It was terrifying and exciting at the same time.View All 12,802 Antigua Cruise Port Reviews

St. MaartenTook the water taxi to the beach and paid $20 for 2 lounge chairs, 1 umbrella and 6 beer. Strolled the board walk and had lunch. The people who run the chairs are very nice and respectful. You don't have to be rude to them just say "no thank you". If they want to help you, let them. It's their livelihood and they rely on tourismView All 4,728 St. Maarten Cruise Port Reviews
