    This year’s National Plan a Cruise Month is all about falling in love with cruising. Here are the top reasons guests are falling in love with cruising on MSC Divina.

    1. World-Class Entertainment: MSC Cruises is the only cruise line to offer six different Broadway-style production shows on a seven-night cruise with everything from exhilarating acrobatic feats and contortionism to riveting operas and tribute shows. Shows seen in the Pantheon Theater on MSC Divina receive a standing ovation every night.

    2. Family-Friendly Activities: Onboard MSC Divina, families will discover a variety of dedicated activities for all ages in addition to a 4D theatre, F1 Simulator, mini-bowling alley, water slide and the unique LEGO Experience.

    3. Health and Wellbeing Focus: The MSC Aurea Spa offers guests Balinese-style massages, a perk not offered on any other cruise line. There is also a state-of-the-art gym with personal trainers and yoga instructors. In addition, MSC Divina is the first cruise ship in the world to offer its passengers Aqua Cycling at sea – allowing guests to get a refreshing cycling workout while immersed in a pool. It’s fun and by far a guest favorite. 

    4. Stunning Décor: MSC Divina is one of the most elegantly decorated and stylish ships at sea, featuring Swarovski crystal staircases, glass elevators and European marble terrazzo.

    5. Exclusive MSC Yacht Club: With 69 stunning suites, the MSC Yacht Club includes 24-hour concierge services, personal butlers, exclusive Top Sail Lounge and pool, and a private restaurant – allowing guests to enjoy a private luxury experience while still having access to the amenities of a larger ship.

    National Plan a Cruise Month is celebrated in October to promote special offers from member cruise lines of the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), the world’s largest cruise industry trade association.
