MSC Cruises. As soon as I did, I was immediately intrigued at the concept of this European line who had one ship in the U.S. I was also fascinated with their Yacht Club idea which gives a luxury “ship within a ship” experience.
The ship leaves out of Miami for the Caribbean, while the other ships of this Italian owned line travel throughout the world. (MSC is in the process of bringing two additional ships to Miami in the next few years.) It’s a fairly large vessel with 1,637 cabins that can hold nearly 4,000 passengers.
MSC Divina Yacht Club passengers were to go. Once that was settled and we were in the right place, we had champagne in our hands and a butler escorting us to our cabin before most of the ship had even finished registering.
We were in a Deluxe Suite for guests with disabilities (my mom uses a medical scooter). It was quite spacious with a European king bed, a coach, desk, dresser, closets, and a bathroom with a shower (the same room that wasn’t handicap accessible had a bath tub too).
MSC Cruise they take.
Mom and I didn’t have very long to get settled before we had the law mandated muster drill. After that was done, we unpacked and got ready for dinner.
Le Muse was nothing like I expected. It didn’t resemble any cruise main dining room I had ever seen. Instead, it looked like a quaint café in Italy, both in size and décor.
As MSC Yacht Club members we were given complimentary beer, wine, and cocktails in this restaurant, as well as our lounge and pool area.
The wine selection was fantastic, but they didn’t hesitate if we didn’t happen to like the dinner choice to bring something else.
The dinner menu gave us a choice of appetizers, salads, soups, main course and dessert. If we didn’t want something from the selection of the day, we could always chose to pick something from the “Alternative Choice” menu.
I started with a creamy and satisfying tomato soup and Mom enjoyed the Caesar salad with shrimp.
For a main course, I thought the Pumpkin Risotto with truffle and parmesan was amazing. Mom decided to keep in healthy the first night and went for the salmon with grilled vegetables.
We definitely indulged on the desserts. We were unable to resist when they came around with a fruit and cheese cart that rivaled some that I have seen in France.
After dinner, we decided to skip the show and head back to the cabin. We were both exhausted from the long day, and glad the next day was at sea so we would have plenty of time to explore the MSC Divina.
