11/29-12/9/2018 Divina Cruise Dailies

Recommended Posts

Bear with me here..

 

I am going to attempt to upload snapshots of the dailies from this week’s cruise (11/29-12/9/2018) on the MSC Divina. Please understand that bandwidth will drive how promptly new days are loaded, and the photos won’t always be that great. I just wanted to give anyone interested the opportunity to see them. I figured some folks with upcoming cruises might be interested...

 

Day 1, Embarkation Day, is attached to this message.

Thanks for this!  I board her next Sunday, so our itinerary will be different, but since it's my first on MSC, I'd been curious about the daily activities.

We have commented on how many activities there are.  Crafts, games etc. Love it!  Very nice to have met you Tom!

Likewise! I think the fellow passengers on this cruise have really added to the positive experience.

Just had a thought.  I'm used to sailing Carnival, which usually sticks to ship's time.  Other cruise lines change to whatever time is local time.  Noticing the "back on board" times made me wonder how MSC does things.

On Divina now and they use the local time.  Ship time is the same as local.  Boarding is generally required 30 min prior to sailing time.

Thank you for taking the time to post these.  Is the food in the sports bar complimentary, and is it open on embarkation day?  Enjoy your cruise!

Really hope I love MSC and Divina.  Would love to do this itinerary next fall.  Have only been to Tortola once and never to Guadeloupe!

The food in Sports bar is complimentary.  I will try to get a copy of the menu.  The wings are great.

One and only time I have been on the Divina 2 years ago, the food was complimentary and open for embarkation (which was a wonderful relief from the buffet that day).  DH loves wings so it looks like we will be spending some time there, thx!

We're sailing on this same itinerary 01/10-01/20.  Looks like only two "elegant" (i.e., gala) nights?  MSC's website says three, and I called to confirm and was advised three.  Grr!

Still on the Davina and “elegant” is anything but!  We have had 2 gala nights on each of our back to backs.  The first 3 I wore my tux but only about 1/3 of the men even had on a jacket.  Our last gala night I just wore a dress shirt and nice trousers and that was perfect for this ship.  The ladies do dress a bit better then the men.  Fortunately we did not have ball cap wearers in the YC.

Thanks so much for posting,  TnTom. We've  never been on MSC and were wondering  what activities  were on offer. Seems similar to what we've  experienced  on other lines.

Looming forward to meeting you all.
