My son, husband, and I recently took a cruise on the beautiful MSC Divina. Out of Miami, Florida, we spent 3 days docked at various islands, and 4 more at sea, for a total of 7 days including the one we boarded. The time we spent on board was fun, and there was a lot to do on the ship.
Every day, they passed out a daily newsletter that gave you list of the day’s activities and events, as well as where and when they were. We took advantage of as many of these as we could, both because we wanted to fully experience the cruise and because one never knows when they will get the chance to do some of the activities again.
We loved the dance lessons that were offered on the ship- almost every day, they had multiple options and times for a new dance to learn. We tried out three of them- the Meringue, the Tarantella (a traditional Itlaian dance), and “Thriller” (the epic Michael Jackson song and dance!) My son decided to do kids club for “Thriller” instead of dancing, but that’s fine- the husband and I had a great time. I think “Thriller” was both of our favorites. Neither of us are dancers, and my husband normally HATES to dance- the fact that he not only participated but also enjoyed himself is crazy to me. I was thrilled with it!
The Kids Club was a lot of fun for my son, and they had daily activities as well as taking the kids to see the ship’s shows in the evenings if you wanted. They could be signed in and our throughout the day as the family liked, and they had plenty to keep them occupied. The kids club staff was amazing with the kids- funny, silly, and enthusiastic- just the kind of people you would want with your children. The staff is mulch-lingual, which means that no matter where you are from, your child will be understood (there were many Europeans on board). Children can also eat with family or with the Kids Club, depending on your wishes.
