It was another day at sea, but it wasn’t supposed to be. The ship was to go to Great Stirrup Cay in the Bahamas, where I was going to finally try windsurfing. Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t cooperating. It was too windy for the tender to go out.
MSC Cruises always makes sure there’s plenty to do on their ships and I would actually have a chance to finish a book!
I had gotten up and ready for the beach and instead headed to the Top Sail Lounge in the Yacht Club section of the Divina for breakfast.
I brought Mom some breakfast. She decided to stay in the room for a while and I agreed to meet her before our spa appointments. She had enjoyed her massage so much the other day that she had booked another.
Fifty Shades Darker as I sipped a Bellini, but it was soon time for the spa.
Mom and I went our separate ways at the spa as I headed to the Himalayan Dream room with my therapists.
It began with me laying down on a bed filled with heated Himalayan salt. It felt a little rough at first, but as soon as she started scrubbing salt on me I quickly relaxed.
Himalayan Salt was on my skin from toes to neck when I went into the shower and washed it off. Next, a mask was put on my body and I was wrapped in plastic.
While the mask was working its magic, the therapist massaged my head and scalp. She then used warm towels to take the mask off.
The treatment ended with an oil massage. I felt rested, relaxed, and soft all over by the time I walked out of there. I decided to keep that mood going and went back to the pool to finish my book.
Before long it was time to return to the suite to shower and pMSC Divina.
The service and food was as wonderful the last night as it was the first.
Mom had salmon rolls filled with chive goat cheese and she loved them. I was equally happy with my cream of cauliflower soup, which was topped with toasted pistachios .
Dessert was a decadently delicious chocolate chip cheesecake with chocolate sauce for me and Tiramisu for Mom.
MSC Divina for the last time.
It was an amazing voyage and I’d be happy to return to this taste of Italy on the water with MSC in the future.
