The days of drudging through long airport lines, navigating through overcrowded theme parks and driving for hours on gas-guzzling road trips are long gone.

MSC Cruises, the world's largest privately-owned cruise company, has singlehandedly created the perfect 5-star hotel experience aboard the 4,345-guest MSC Divina. From extraordinary accommodations and service including state-of-the-art wellness and spa facilities, impeccable personal service, extraordinary youth programs, beautiful staterooms and suites, award-winning onboard performances and the finest epicurean Mediterranean cuisine at sea.

Dining in a 5-star restaurant promises top notch exotic cuisine. The same can be said about dining aboard MSC Divina. The onboard chefs take their time choosing only the finest quality ingredients in a passionate pursuit for dining perfection.

The behind-the-scenes work that it takes to make these dishes extra special is phenomenal.

There is a masterful preparation methodology applied which includes flavor development techniques that focus on taste, texture, aroma and color. Additionally, building on the natural flavors of food, cooking for nutrition and making sure there is excellent plating and presentation are also key elements to preparing that perfect MSC dish. Akin to the original dream of MSC Cruises to bring the exquisiteness of cultures together, every chef has a respect for the regions visited and strives to authentically present them to onboard guests. Cuisines included in the menu plan are truly global with specialties from the Mediterranean, North & South America, Asia and more.

Similar to a 5-star hotel, the entertainment never fails to amaze and the same thing can be expected on board MSC Divina. MSC Cruises is the only cruise line to offer 6 different Broadway-style production shows on a 7-night cruise with everything from exhilarating acrobatic feats and nail-biting contortionism to riveting operas and musical tribute shows.

Shows seen in the 1,600-seat grand-style Pantheon Theater on MSC Divina receive standing ovations every night.
