Dinner and a show, that is what we did every night and the MSC Divina entertainment team never disappointed! Every cruise line is a little different in their nightly show offerings. I was excited to find out what MSC had in store for us.
When we first got on the Divina we made our way to the Pantheon Theater. It is a huge theater that is 2 ship decks tall with very comfortable, red velvety seats. The stage was covered but the curtains looked like liquid silver. It was not a dulled silver color…but more like a silver chrome. We ended up walking down to the lower part of the theater and tried out a few different seats trying to find the ones that we wanted to be “our seats”. Of course, all the seats are available first come first serve, but we made sure to get there early enough for every show that was got to sit in the seats we chose that first day.
Every show put on by the MSC Divina entertainment team was incredible! They all had a general theme as far as the costumes and the general flow of the show went. But overall they were kind of like a big variety show. They featured opera singers, acrobats, dancers, magic tricks…the list just really goes on and on. The costumes were equally as impressive as the performers who wore them!
On our sea day, we found out that the theater would be putting on a show during the middle of the day. WOW what a treat. That is definitely something that the other cruise lines do not do! Then come to find out that they would be performing an hour-long condensed version of the Italian opera La Traviata. I have never been to an opera before but this was so fantastic to see. I do not speak Italian at all, but this was one of the most beautiful shows I have ever seen. The theater had a really great turnout which kind of surprised me…I had no idea that operas were so popular.
I had two shows onboard the Divina that are my absolute favorites from that week. The first was Wonderland that was designed after Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. I have to admit that I love all things Tim Burton…his films are incredible! The performers were all spectacular and it was so fun to have something that I love come to life before my eyes!
The second show that was my favorite was Pirates that was themed after Pirates of the Caribbean. After all who does love pirates…especially when you are currently sailing the Caribbean??
The quality of shows that were performed on the MSC Divina entertainment is unlike any that I have seen on a cruise ship before. Everything was extremely well put together from the costumes, transitions between performers and the quality of the acts. I cannot wait until I can get on another MSC ship to see what other performances they have!
