The Details

MSC Cruises’ year-old 3,502-passenger Divina arrived in Miami in late November, escorted by a fleet of Fiat 500 personal watercraft, to launch sailings to the Caribbean. Divina, the first MSC vessel deployed year-round from North America, has two restaurants created in partnership with Manhattan Italian restaurant Eatly: Ristorante Italia and Eataly Steakhouse. Adaptations to American taste include American-style entertainment and restaurant dishes, far fewer smoking areas and multi-language announcements. The MSC Yacht Club, highly rated by luxury agents, offers personal butlers, 24-hour concierge service, a private restaurant and complimentary select wines and spirits.
