MSC set for May arrival of flagship Divina

The countdown is on for the May arrival of MSC Cruises’ newest flagship Fantasia-class vessel – MSC Divina. Named in honour of MSC Cruises’ “godmother,”Italian film icon Sophia Loren, and with decks named after the Gods of Ancient Greece, MSC Divina will feature several design enhancements that make her truly a “divine goddess,”as MSC Cruises continues its partnership with De Jorio Design International. Among the differences between Divina and sister ships Fantasia and Splendida are: !!! Increased capacity, with 1,751 staterooms hosting 3,502 guests (double occupancy) on the 139,400-ton ship, making it the largest ship in the MSC Cruises fleet; !!! Infinity Garden Pool and “beach zone”in the aft, with views of the ship’s wake; !!! Cutting-edge technical changes that include more powerful propulsion motors, new alternators and state-of-the-art HVAC chillers; !!! A new fresh water production system requiring 40% less power, assuring less environmental impact. Like its sister ships, Divina will feature the exclusive MSC Yacht Club. With 69 suites (verses 72 on sister ships) in this “ship-within-a-ship,”guests indulge in comfort and convenience, from their own personal butler to complimentary wines and spirits available any time of the day in the MSC Yacht Club’s exclusive lounges and pool area. This oasis of tranquility includes several private venues, including Le Muse panoramic restaurant, Top Sail Lounge, pool and relaxation area. All MSC Divina guests have access to three restaurants and a Tex-Mex alternative dining restaurant, Acqua Park (with 150 fountains and water jets, whirlpools and pool bar), MSC Aurea Spa with Balinese-inspired treatments, children’s and teen areas, interactive 4-D Cinema, virtual Formula 1 auto racing, acclaimed international entertainment in the 1,603-seat Pantheon Theatre and more.
