 MSC Divina: Dazzling, Divine and Sailing the Caribbean

As she sails the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, MSC Divina shines with true Mediterranean elegance and style. A diva-worthy grand entrance features two dramatic Swarovski crystal staircases and a classical quartet to welcome you.  

Divinely inspired by Sophia Loren--the godmother of our fleet--our ship includes the one and only luxury suite at sea designed by the screen legend herself. The Sophia Loren Royal Suite is located within MSC Divina's private enclave, MSC Yacht Club
, now available in the Caribbean. 

The blue skies and warm waters of the Caribbean invite you to explore one island paradise after another. But no matter where you choose to travel, the wonders on board will keep you entertained until you've reached your next destination. Relax by The Garden infinity pool overlooking the ship's wake.

Or stroll past the 150 fountains of the Aqua Park with poolside gelato bar, and take the kids to the water park with a waterside for teens.

Imagine sipping a mimosa at brunch in the new Galaxy club restaurant with sweeping panoramic views. Or follow the piano music to the Italian piazza for a cocktail, conversation and shopping. And don't forget the bliss of a Balinese massage in the exotic MSC Aurea Spa, graced with natural stone and wood finishes and floor-to-ceiling ocean views. Plus, enjoy standing-ovation entertainment every night. MSC Cruises is the only cruise line to offer 6 different show on a 7-night cruise.   

MSC Divina, part of MSC Cruises' Fantasia Class, is a gorgeous ship. With marble and mirrors everywhere, Divina could easily have slipped into gaudy territory. But it doesn't. Instead, it's bold yet tasteful, flashy yet elegant. The decor, including Swarovski crystal-covered glass staircases, glass elevators and dramatic lighting, is right to the top without going over. No one would ever call Divina "understated," but you could explore for days and find little touches -- a statue here, an inlaid floor there -- that bring a smile to your face. Highlights include the breathtaking atrium, glitzy Pantheon Theatre and sophisticated Black & White Lounge.  
Another big hit is the Yacht Club, MSC's ship-within-a-ship area where passengers are treated to larger cabins, butler and concierge services, and a private restaurant, lounge and pool area. Spaces within the yacht club are both elegant and relaxed. Butler service there is excellent; somehow, butlers seem to anticipate your every need without being overbearing. Cabins are larger, and perks -- including complimentary beverages and access to an uber-private pool area -- are vast.  
The gym and spa are enormous, with first-rate equipment and services -- not to mention a well-stocked sporting goods store in case you forgot something vital for your trip. With five pools, the ship has ample space for taking a dip and plenty of loungers for sunning. Divina also has the closest thing to a true infinity pool that we've seen at sea. It's the best spot on the ship for unimpeded ocean views.  

Fine Dining
Dining is delizioso with MSC Cruises!

Imagine crêpes Florentine, pumpkin risotto with truffle oil and lobster with coriander and anise. In each ship's main restaurant, dining is a special occasion with our renowned seven-course menu, including a different regional Italian specialty each night. We call our medley of fresh Mediterranean flavors, La Cucina Italiana.

You'll take pleasure in the fresh taste of gourmet Italian food served in an elegant European atmosphere.
Signature dishes designed by two star Michelin chef Mauro Uliassi are featured onboard MSC Magnifica's L'Oasi restaurant and will soon be available on all Musica class à la carte restaurants
