A guide to finding the best room for a once-in-a-lifetime vegan cruise experience.
So, you’re ready to set sail on a beautiful, luxury voyage with amazing food and inspirational programming all included. This journey will be beautiful, fun, engaging, and relaxing…all while supporting your vegan lifestyle, fitness, and health. The only thing left to do is pick your accommodations and book your spot aboard the MSC Divina! Just as the Holistic Holiday at Sea™ – Voyage to Well-Being is not a typical vacation cruise, the eco-friendly MSC Divina is not a typical cruise ship. To begin, here are a few tools to help clarify the options and a couple of general rules to help you choose the best cabin for you.
You can learn more about the cabin amenities that come with different room types here. Be sure to check out the Deck Plans before making your final choice. Rates increase as we get closer to the sailing date, so book early and take advantage of the discounts!
Rooms on decks 9-12 have only other cabins above and below, making almost all of them a good, quiet choice. There are many excellent options on other decks as well, and we have had almost no complaints about noise from anywhere on this ship, but we recommend looking at what is directly above or below the area you are considering.
Although many people prefer cabins relatively close to mid-ship, some love the panoramic views available in cabins across the front and back of the ship. Rooms across the back of decks 10, 11, and 12 have especially large balconies from which to enjoy those great views.
Allow us to walk you through your cabin options from economical to luxury…
The most economical rooms on the MSC Divina are the interior or “inside” Bella and Fantastica cabins, which are located on a variety of decks. These rooms have no window, but there are plenty of places on the ship where you can enjoy the view – both inside and out on the deck. With our extensive program of classes, meals, socials and entertainment, you probably won’t be spending much time in your room, making this a good choice for value-conscious cruisers.
Rooms with Ocean Views
Moving along the spectrum from the most economical cabins to more luxury rooms aboard the MSC Divina are the Bella and Fantastica cabins with large, round windows that offer ocean views. Spacious Bella and Fantastica ocean view rooms can be found on deck 5, which is convenient to one of the main dining rooms and the reception area. There are also Fantastica ocean view rooms on deck 8, mid-ship.
Rooms with a Private Balcony
For a next level (but still affordable) cabin experience, we recommend the Bella and Fantastica cabins with private balcony access! These are the most popular choice year after year. In general, the Fantastica balcony rooms have a superior location. Enjoy the ocean breeze from the comfort and privacy of your own room!
We now have a new option–the Balcony Aurea. For about $300 more per person than the Balcony Fantastica, you receive the full amenities package of the Aurea Suites!
For an extravagant cruise experience, consider booking a suite on the MSC Divina. Aurea suites include ample square footage, sweeping views from the front of decks 9, 10 and 11, and lots of amenities. Aurea Suites are offered with and without a private balcony. Those without a balcony have a floor to ceiling panoramic window.
For the ultimate luxury suite experience, consider the Yacht Club Suite. This VIP Club level all-suite section has its own lounge, pool, 24/7 butler and concierge service, luxury bedding, and many other amenities.
Rates are inclusive of port charges, specially prepared organic/natural meals, lectures, cooking classes, yoga, Pilates, and meditation classes, nightly socials, and the ship’s entertainment and amenities, including the gym, pools, and sports facilities. Taxes and prepaid gratuities are additional.
Need to find a roommate?
The rate for single occupancy is approximately 1.8 times the double occupancy rate. If you do not want to room alone, it may be possible to find a compatible roommate and pay the double occupancy rate. However, this may take some flexibility on your part regarding the room category you choose.
