HI There!
I just heard about this cruise line. We are looking to take a cruise in March 2014 my husband, myself and boys (10). I was told it has a water slide- Yet I can't find pictures of it.
I would love any feedback anyone can give me on this ship.
Thanks!

There are a couple of pics of it here (click on thumbnails to see larger pic). Don't know how helpful they will be for you but proves it exists - or did when the pics were taken. If it is a make or break for your holiday, I should contact MSC before booking and check that it will be in operation during your cruise.

Divina does have a waterslide on the Starboard side of the ship which i believe is for kids only! not sure what age upto but i would think at 10 years old the kids will be ok.

One picture of the "TEEN SLIDE" as it is called on Divina, it was controlled by traffic lights so as to only have one rider at a time. (red traffic light showing if you look hard)






Where you shoot out, which has a lot more water in it when it is in use. (you can see the traffic lights at the entrance!!)

Thanks for the Water Slide photos? Made my DD more excited. Is there an age limit or can anyone go on?

And is that Istanbul in the background?

All I can say is that it's called the "TEENS TOBOGA" and by definition their children and teenagers clubs cover the following age ranges

Mini club:-- age 3 - 6
Juniors :-- age 7 - 11
Young :-- age 12 - 14
Teens :-- age 15 - 17

The "TEEN CARD" is available for anyone under the age of 18
You can draw your own conclusons but I suspect there is an upper age limit of 17 and guess there may be a lower age limit of 7.

As for the background it is indeed Istanbul
