When we were on Divina last year it was a Tina Turner tribute show and it was terrible.

Which shows are on the Meraviglia right now? Other than Cirque 

 

As of the second week of December, just standard production shows with one exception; a magic show. All were poor at best, and several were walkout bad. The magic show was so bad I kept wondering when the real show was going to start. 

 

The singers were fair, but when they sang together, their combination was poor to be kind. Many times it was even difficult to tell what language that they were singing in; seemed to be a poor mix of several.

 

Last December we were on the Seaside and thought that all the shows were great. What a let down on the Meraviglia. Otherwise, we really enjoyed the cruise.

Cirque Du Soleil at Sea is exclusively on MSC ships.

Hmmm, shows on MSC are mediocre at best but MJ show was pretty good. So they got rid of the best show on Divinia?

Hmmm...I just assumed it was a standard and they had it on every ship.  Saw it on Divina in 2016, and Seaside in 2019.  Was surprised they did not have it on Armonia.  Now, I know why.  EM

There are currently only two performers in the fleet who portray Michael. So, whatever ships Yonathan and Herminio are on, those ships get the MJ show. And, right now Herminio is on Seaside and he is slaying it. Yonathan has been on holiday in Ukraine with family enjoying a much deserved rest.

I beg to differ, we've been on all the major cruise lines and  the Seaside shows were second only to the ones on RCL's Oasis class ships.

The shows on Norwegian, Princess, HAL, and Celebrity weren't even close.

Hi, was on a 4 day on Divina in December  and there was a Queen  show called the show must  go on. I really  enjoyed  it, but then I'm  a long time  Queen  fan. The lead singer had Freddie  Mercury's mannerisms  exactly  right.

That's what DD surmised.

 

Thanks for details.

Interesting. We were on the Dec. 8 sailing and thought all the entertainment was exceptional except the magician.

I hope they have that on our 3-day on Divina next month.

i AGREE 100% .Magic show was a joke and rest of them was good but not up to MSC standards at all.
