  1. Hello I just booked on MSC Margavilla Yacht Club. Its state you get the beverage package and I think its Premier but now I see Premier Plus. Anybody know what it is? Thanks Brenda
  2. My opinion the Armonia doesn't compare to the Seaside. Especially the food. Brenda
  3. I was on the Divina on March 10th and March 13th, which turned out to be the last cruise. First of all they took every passengers temperature getting on the ship, also when we came back from port and before we debarked. They had crew sanitizing the ship all the time. Especially things that were touched a lot. If you used a pen it was sanitized after. They did a great job. After the first leg of our cruise I was wondering if we would be cancelled since lots of passengers cancelled the March 13th cruise. The cruise went on. Yea! There was about half the people everywhere. No lines at anytime. The crew were organizing at a moments notice and with a smile. Our ship was banned from San Juan and St Marteen. So our ship and NCL got together (maybe other cruise lines too) and traded private islands. So we went to NCls private island and MSCs. I was fine with that they are really nice islands set up great for passengers. The crew brought everything off the ship from lunch and drinks. You would have never known it was spur of the moment. Since it was the last cruise most of the crew was leaving the ship and had no idea where at the time since most of their home countries were closed. I will tell you MSC made sure all of us had a great cruise no matter what. If a passenger didn't it was their fears or upset due to not going on the islands planned. No one was sick on our ship and we all had the best time. It was more scary getting off the ship, It was like being in a twilight zone. At the airport, on the plane, how things were handled. I was more afraid on the plane. We cleaned our area with alcohol wipes and stayed away from people. There was only about 1/2 the passenger on the plane and some wearing their mask and gloves. I congratulate MSC cruise line for getting in front of the situation and taking control of everything. Taking care of their crew and passengers. I would be proud to sail their cruise line again. It was eye opening. Thank you MSC T
  4. Regarding adding friends, with what information do you add in? Their phone number, their cabin number? I have a big gang of people going and I would like to be able to tell them. Thanks Brenda
  5. The Divina named for Sophia and she is also the Godmother. Check out the Sophia Loren suite on the Divina. Happy Birthday Sophia, you still look great Brenda
  6. Thank you Rattanchair, Finally someone who understood what I was speaking about. All this tax and percentage made no sense at all. I guess you have to experience Vishnu to understand as we have. Right Max996? Now it makes we wonder if you don't have Vishnu what experience will I have then. I just wanted to have my ducks in a row when it comes to tipping a butler since this is new to me. Im sailing on the Divina in spring with about 20 other people. Its going to be my wedding/honeymoon. We are all in the YC and Im wondering how they are going to plan our sitting in the YC restaurant. Ha Ha It really doesn't matter. I became engaged on the Seaside last year. I have to say with the YC experience that was the best cruise Ive ever been on and Ive been on about 60.There was about 8 of us on that cruise. My son got married in Miami and we all went on a cruise. It was so nice in the YC experience I felt like I didn't want to be with all the crowds. If they had a casino for the YC I could have just stayed there the entire time. The Seaside has a great design with everything in the same area for the YC. I see that is a little different on the Divina. They have the restaurant on the back of the ship and YC is at the front. Its all great though, to have such a problem to have to walk to our exclusive dining. Ha Ha Well I hope all you people experience Vishnu one day and you know experience the magic spell. Vishnus ears must be ringing. in 5 languages. thanks
  7. His name was Vishnu on the Seaside last September. He is Indian and very tall. He can speak English very well but he said he cannot read it. Im worried when I go again and if I have great service, I don't want to offend my butler, if he usually gets more. Thanks
  8. So far I’m answering your questions but no one is answering my question.
  9. Our butler made sure where we were on the ship and try to bring us something to make it better. We were at the yacht club pool, he found out what all of us in our group were drinking and brought us all extra. We were at the grill having lunch he brought us all gelato. He made sure we had our favorite wine in our cabin that he gave to us . Not a cheap bottle. He found out we were at the slide and brought us towels. This is off the top of my head.
  10. We had a great butler on our last cruise on MSC Yacht Club. He really made a difference without asking for anything. He tipped him $150.00 and what ever was put on automatically on our account.. What is a correct tip if you love your butler? Thanks
  11. Thanks Essiemon, That makes sense to me. I remember being on deck with my family on the Allure of the Sea and it was magnificent coming into port and going by the Fort. Thanks
  12. There are 2 docks in San Juan. Which one is the MSC Divina docked at when she comes in? Thanks
  13. Any body know so I can figure out what right there at port. I know there is a port close to the Shearton and one close to the fort. Thanks
  14. Hello I have a large gang of people going on the Divina for a 3-4 day cruise. I need to find out if they have a formal night on the cruise for everyone. Other short cruises they had 1 but I don't know MSC policy. Ive tried to find online with no luck. thank you
  15. Hi We have our adult kids most on their first cruise. My fiancé wants to have them transported from the hotel to the wedding, then after to the ship. Anyone have a company I can call they recommend? Thanks
