MSC Divina is a Fantasia-class cruise ship owned and operated by MSC Cruises. She entered service in May 2012. The ship is an enhanced version of her running mates, MSC Splendida and MSC Fantasia.

This video begins with the approach to Venice Port (Porto di Venezia) and ends with the disembarkation at the end of the cruise, the video is wholly concentrated on the ship itself rather than the cruise destinations features a thorough overview of the ship and her facilities as well as a 9th deck outside cabin with balcony review and reflections of the Eastern Mediterranean Cruise, which began and ended at Venice, and called en-route at Bari, Katakolon, Izmir, Istanbul and Dubrovnik.

All of the publicly accessible decks are featured within the video, and within them the following areas / locations / features: Cybercafe, Reception, Divina Bar, Black Crab Restaurant, Gala Dinner menu and sample dishes, Silver Lounge, Mini Mall, Excursions Desk, Pantheon Theatre, Casino Veneziano, Piaza Del Doge, Cigar Lounge, Caffe Italia, MSC Logo Shop, Sports Bar, Golden Jazz Bar, La Luna Piano Bar, Black and White Lounge, cocktails, Cruise Director Franco, entertainment, La Cantina Di Bacco, Sacramento Tex Mex Restaurant, Deck 7 promenade, Calumet Buffet, Manitou Buffet, MSC Aurea Spa, Le Sirene, Aqua Park, Garden Bar, Garden Pool, water slide, MSC Yacht Club members only areas, Galaxy Disco, Galaxy Bar, Library, MSC Arena, Solarium, and external views of the ship in port.

The video ends with some criticisms of the organisation of the Eastern Mediterranean Cruise, particularly at Bari and Dubrovnik, where poor management lead to a negative passenger experience. The disembarkation was also a negative experience. Having to be out of our cabins for 07:30, not being able to get breakfast, and then the chaos of finding our suitcases were quite off-putting experiences. MSC Cruises need to work on this.

Ultimately the MSC Divina is a beautiful ship, but the passenger experience needs to be improved, I would make the following recommendations: 1. Spend more time at the ports of call; 2. Better organisation of the shuttle buses at Bari; 3. Better organisation of the tender boat disembarkation at Dubrovnik; 4. Longer in cabin on the last day, allowing for staggered entry to the restaurants for breakfast; 5. A more efficient system of baggage collection at Venice.
