Continued from: MSC Divina Part 1
After checking out the room, I decided it was time to see some more of this beautiful ship. Other guests were still boarding so I used this opportunity to wander around without a ton of people being in the way.
The Pantheon Theater was very large and quite pretty. The seats were very comfy and arranged so that every seat in the house is a good seat. My personal favorite was the front row and if you want to sit up front arrive early because the shows do fill up. The stage shows on the Divina were amazing and truly not to be missed. All of the performers are incredibly talented and each night offered something completely different than the previous.
Honestly, I did not spend much time in the casino area. This was my assigned muster station and other than the mandatory drill after embarkation, I was only here to pass thru. The area is very nicely decorated and has all the normal casino games. The casino always seemed busy when I would pass thru and I do have to say that walking down the central casino staircase is enough to make any girl feel like someone special.
Piazza del Doge
Piazza del Doge has cute little shops with a seating area in the center of the room. There is a gelato and dessert bar here (these are not included with the cruise price but are reasonably priced.) Quite often, there was something happening in this area…a sale being feature by the shops or a musical performance…great place to sit and watch the world walk by.
La Luna Piano Bar
I have to say this wasn’t really my kind of piano bar. I was kind of hoping for a dueling piano bar setup…you know more of the sing along and make new friends kind of place. This area did have a lot of plush, comfy couches, but the color is kind of blah…kind of a purple-mauve color…
Golden Jazz Bar
Pretty quiet place during the day but once the sun went down this was a very popular place to hang out, hear some music and talk with good friends.
The sports bar on the Divina is a pretty nifty place to hang out. They always have lots of TVs and always have sports showing. I figured this bar would be very busy and much to my surprise it was one of the quietest places on the ship. I went here for free happy hour drinks and had the place to myself. The sports bar also has a small 2 lane bowling alley and a super cool Vespa on display!
This coffee bar is centrally located at the top level of the atrium and right beside the beautiful Swarovski staircases. They have delicious coffees available (for an additional fee) and they are worth it. With this area being at the top of the atrium, you can hear the musical performances that take place on the main level of the atrium. The only disappointment of this area was right outside the big windows were lifeboats…not really the best view. Next door to the coffee bar is the MSC Logo Shop and the Perfume Shop.
Black and White Lounge
Black and White Lounge is a large open showroom at the back of the ship with a stage and a dance floor. There is also a large bar and tons of seating. This is a great place to hear some great music and dance the night away.
Le Sirene Pool
A quiet (sometimes covered) pool with three hot tubs, a small bar, and the Pool Shop. Most of the lounge chairs and tables are in the shade with only the pool and hot tubs being in the sun. This was my favorite pool area and didn’t have a ton of little ones running around.
Aqua Park Pool
Aqua Park pool area is the busier pool area. Lots of space in this area with shallow water to play with your littler kids, the deeper pool for swimming and a couple hot tubs for a good soak!. This pool area is also very close to the buffet.
The Divina is a very beautiful ship, the food was good, the stage shows were fantastic and the employees are amazingly friendly. I was very pleased with the trip and cannot wait to explore another MSC ship.
