"This trip was just the macrobiotic refresher course that I needed, perfectly timed at the tail end of a cold, wet winter in England. It was a real treat to be able to sit back, relax and enjoy Caribbean sunshine, a stimulating program of events and the kind of food you dream about on vacation but never get. I made new friends, true kindred spirits, who I hope will be friends for a long time to come, and my faith in a macrobiotic future for all was reinvigorated. Truly one of the main highlights of my 35 years of enjoying the macrobiotic way of life."

Inspired by Sophia Loren herself, MSC Divina brings you all the elegance and glamour of the golden age of sea travel in a new vision. Just as the Holistic Holiday at Sea™ - Voyage To Well Being is not a typical vacation cruise, the new eco-friendly MSC Divina is not a typical cruise ship. The Divina is a spacious, ultramodern interpretation that pampers you with sumptuous comfort and an immense variety of sports and leisure facilities, plus world-class entertainment. MSC Divina combines the Old World sophistication of European design with state-of-the-art American comforts and conveniences - let your eyes drink in the sheer scale, style and attention to detail. From MSC Divina’s real stone piazza to her Broadway-size theatre. From the sweeping grace of her Swarovski crystal staircases to the calm of her Infinity Pool, extending seamlessly out to sea and the horizon beyond.

Launched in 2012, the MSC Divina is built to the highest and most demanding ecological and safety standards, resulting in a truly modern liner. The Divina is outfitted with Advanced Water Treatment technology, and an Energy Saving and Monitoring System. In fact, MSC ships are the greenest in the industry, having received numerous awards from both private and government organizations. Click here to learn more about the environmental aspects of the MSC fleet.

On board the Divina you will discover luxury cruising at its best. As you enter the reception area you will be greeted by a soaring open atrium highlighted by shimmering mirrors, silvery staircases and glass elevators. Relax in your cabin - designed with the hallmark Italian artistry and elegance that guests associate with the MSC line, staterooms are stylishly decorated and many have private balconies. Passengers will appreciate the attention to detail and craftsmanship. Imagine yourself on a private balcony overlooking the ocean and beneath a star-filled sky, accompanied by the sound of the waves and the breeze on your face.

During your seven day cruise you will experience delicious, specially-prepared vegan meals served by tuxedo-clad waiters in the ship’s elegant dining room, the Black Crab. For Mediterranean fusion cuisine provided by MSC, there's the Galaxy Restaurant, which features a gorgeous panoramic view of the ocean. If you're in the mood for a bit of spiciness, try the casual Sacramento Tex Mex Restaurant. In between meal times, there's always the option to grab a salad at the Calumet Cafeteria, or a light snack at the dreamy Piazza del Doge.

All the Divina's many lounges and public spaces are artfully decorated with eye-appealing furnishings and wall hangings. The Black and White Lounge contrasts futuristic curves with an attractive greyscale palette. The Silver Lounge Bar features modern design and a space-age atmosphere for the cutting-edge crowd, while the mellow warmth of the Golden Jazz Bar is perfect for smoothing into a groove. To enjoy conversation with new found friends aboard the ship, mingle in the La Cantina di Bacco, the wine bar. For a little late night fun, try the Galaxy Disco on Deck 16, which boasts a panoramic view of the ocean - which is mesmerizing and refreshing after a bit of dancing.

During your free time between lectures, yoga, Pilates, meditation, cooking classes, and workshops, refresh yourself in one of the Divina's sparkling swimming pools. Splash into the aqua waters of La Sirene, a covered pool on Deck 14. Or plunge into the full experience with the Aqua Park, over 22,600 square feet of watery excitement. Lounge with a book in one of two Solariums, where you can warm up in the sunshine without the hassle of a strong breeze, or take a dip in one of a handful of whirlpool tubs. On the exposed decks, you can relax in cleverly designed lounge chairs with sun visor attachments, which can easily be positioned to keep the sun off of your face.

Amongst the many luxuries and amenities of the Divina, the Aurea Spa stands out as the crowning jewel. With over 18,000 square feet of soothing ambiance and exotic nature-inspired decor, Aurea Spa is designed to meet your every need - for relaxation, restoration and pampering. The Spa facilities are peerless, with designated areas for sauna, Turkish bath, whirlpool tubs, exercise, beauty treatments, sunning and more. Enjoy a rejuvenating facial or steam bath to look and feel your best. Want the best view in the house when pulling up to a port? Watch the approach of the sandy shores while working out in the Aurea Fitness Center.

Children can play and meet others their age in the safe environment of the I Puffi, the kids' play area, while teenagers mingle at I Graffiti. The entertainment options for kids are numerous, with a 4D Cinema, an F1 race car simulator, the Teens' Toboga waterslide, the Virtual World arcade and La Caramella confectionary.

When it comes to live entertainment, MSC delivers. The Pantheon Theatre is state-of-the-art, dramatic-looking and acoustically impressive, with no blocked sight lines for the 1,600 seats. Every night there is a lavish production number to watch in the Pantheon. From the talented vocals of opera singers, to the gravity-defying feats of aerialists, to the riotous comedian acts, there is always something for everyone.

The multitude of lounges offer entertainment and music on a more intimate scale - La Luna is a refined lounge and piano bar, while the Black and White Lounge provides more lively shows and music, which often encourage audience interaction. Aboard the Divina, you are never far from live music. It has been said that MSC is one of the best cruise lines for live music, and past guests agree. Starting in the late afternoon and continuing into the wee hours, live music can be found in many locations throughout the ship.

Holistic Holiday at Sea is not only a very relaxing vacation, it is also a profound learning experience that will change your life. If you feel a need for a quiet space to unwind and contemplate all you are learning, retreat to the ship's small library and conference room, Sky and Stars. There is an attendant who will unlock the bookcases for you, but you need to check the time that it is staffed. Strolling through the Galleria d'Arte and resting your eyes on the beauty of Italian paintings is another option. There is also a designated Relaxation Room in the Aurea Spa, and the Solariums often offer more peaceful venues for relaxation.

Like all ships sailing today, the Divina is outfitted for wifi. There are various hotspots throughout the ship, mainly in the public areas. If you bring your laptop, here's a little known secret - at the reception desk, you can borrow an ethernet cable and connect it right to an outlet on your cabin TV. You'll need to purchase an internet package in order to get online, but it can be nice to use your own laptop in the comfort of your cabin. Of course, the Cybercafe on Deck 5 is always available.

The Divina is a moving city of international guests. Enjoy all her amenities while having the learning experience of your life in the company of other like-minded guests and world leaders in the field of holistic living. Holistic Holiday at Sea™ is truly a vacation with a purpose!
