I know from my previous cruises, they would offer daily deals like 2 for 1 drink hour, or on spa packages...etc. Has anyone seem this on the Divina?

They offered spa specials each day usually a little less than half price but the only drink specials we saw was the featured drink of the day which was a dollar or two off the regular price , but we had drink vouchers so the dollar or so off was a mute point .

Spa specials daily, wait for port days.

The only spa specials we saw both times on the Divina was 30% off at the most for spa treatments (except for the 10 minute massages that they do on deck). When you book, they will give you 20% 2 massages, 30% for 3. But then you pay the 15% gratuity. We will definitely buy a package in advance the next time we cruise. They have some great deals online.

Does anyone know if they offer onboard internet or laundry specials? We are sailing Yacht Club and I am wondering if that might also help? Thanks for any input!

I had read a couple posts about laundry specials on MSC in YC but I didn't see any a few weeks back. All we ever got was the same form as any other day.

Thank you Kate and Dex! I will buy them in advance.
I also read it was cheaper to buy in advance but the prices were the same.

You avoid the 15% service charge when you buy in advance.

I have cruised Celebrity and Silversea but not MSC. What is the 15% service charge?

It's their version of a built in tip. Celebrity does it too. (Although if I remember right they call it a tip.)

It's a charge added to purchases onboard. All items on the bar menus are subject to this as are drinks packages, spa treatments, etc.
