The year-old MSC Divina, a 3,502-passenger MSC Cruises vessel, is being welcomed on a new route. The ship arrived in Miami in late November 2013, to launch sailings to the Caribbean.

Divina is the first MSC vessel to be deployed year-round from North America. Accommodations on the ship include 1,097 Balcony Staterooms of approximately 148-200 square feet, with 34- to 124-square-foot balconies. There are also 28 Balcony Staterooms designed for guests with disabilities.

Two restaurants on Divina were created in partnership with Manhattan Italian restaurant Eataly: Ristorante Italia and Eataly Steakhouse. Other dining options on the ship include The Black Crab, one of the ship’s two main restaurants, and The Galaxy, a nightclub restaurant with a Mediterranean theme and elaborate brunch.

Divina also features the exclusive MSC Yacht Club, a 69-suite ship-within-the-ship. Highly rated for its luxury, the Yacht Club offers personal butlers, 24-hour concierge service, a private restaurant, the Top Sail Lounge and complimentary select wines and spirits.

Other features of the ship include the Garden Infinity Pool with adjoining Zen relaxation zone, and a Cigar Lounge with a well-stocked humidor and a bar with fine spirits. Adaptations have been made to suit American tastes, including American-style entertainment and restaurant dishes, far fewer smoking areas and multi-language announcements.
