Couples Cruise has always had great clothing optional ports and excursions.  This is one of the best itineraries that Couples Cruise has ever had.

St Maarten

St Maarten is the Couples Cruise  #1 rated destination according to their passenger surveys. This French & Dutch Island has one of the world’s most beautiful Nude Beaches, Orient Beach. Orient Bay offers lots of shopping, great little beach bars and restaurants but it is the long white nude beach that brings our passengers back every time. Maho Beach is another great option.  It’s located next to the airport and planes approach for landing literally right over your head. We have always had a GREAT time at Maho and the photo opportunities are priceless. Insider tip: Visit Sunset Bar at Maho Beach.  If ladies go topless they get to drink free!

The America’s Cup 12 meter sailboat race is another one of our favorite excursions in St Martin. Each passenger is taught a crew position and you have the once in a lifetime opportunity to race multi-million dollar America’s Cup Race Boats in the warm blue waters and brisk trade winds of the Caribbean.  How naughty will your boat be?

San Juan, Puerto Rico

There is nothing like stolling through Old San Juan. It’s like walking back through time in this historic colonial city. Visit the forts, go shopping and eat some of the best food you will find on this cruise. Don’t forget to try a mohito, the island’s specialty. Couples Cruise will also have a clothing optional party boat where we can really party down like the locals do (only naked!). You can also visit rainforests, hike to waterfalls and even visit the famed Bacardi Rum Distillery. Puerto Rico offers plenty of great sites in a safe place where everyone speaks English and they use the American dollar and you can make calls back home on your cell phone!

Little Stirrup Cay

One of our favorite places to visit is our very own private island in the Bahamas. We will be able to sunbathe nude, go on clothing optional snorkel excursions and the best part: the food is included and if you have the drink package Couples Cruise announced that it will also work when you go ashore!  Awesome!

 

Divina Couples Cruise Theme Parties 2016

 

Are there theme parties on Divina Cruise?
This is a Couples Cruise, so of course there are theme parties.  You can get as dressed up as you desire.  Not in the mood?  No problem it’s all about doing your own thing with your partner and having a wonderful time.

Divina Couples Cruise 2016 sex dungeon

What about play rooms, sex & nudity on Divina 2016?

Play?  YES!
Is there a play room?  Couples Cruise is know for their amazing playrooms.
Is there a dungeon?  Of Course! and you can count on other specialty play rooms too!
Nudity?  Thats one of the things we love about Couples Cruise and you can be nude on the pool decks and topless in the dance clubs.

The Perfect Playroom

The whole ship, it is a clothing optional charter. Couples Cruise has playrooms where you can expand your sexual horizons and explore your own fantasies. Some people are intimidated by any playroom and are unsure about checking them out, so on the 1st night, they always have an hour long preview where you can tour the playrooms, ask questions and see what they are all about before anyone is actually using them.

Creating Your Experience

If you are not comfortable, you don’t have to come into the playrooms at all, it’s your choice. But if you do, you can set the level of your experience to your level of comfort.

You can do as much or as little as you want in the playrooms. You can just watch others or be watched if that is where you feel comfortable. The drapes allow you to be as private as you want to be by giving you the option to leave the curtains open, so anyone can see, closing the sheers for a little more privacy or you can close the drapes completely for maximum privacy.

Education

Not only are Couples Cruise “Perfect Playrooms” used for open play at night, but during the day, they use these spaces for multiple classes, seminars and demonstrations. They believe it is their duty to educate the passengers as much as possible to ensure that they can play safe, learn new techniques and expand their sexual knowledge base.

This Cruise brings on some of the best sexologists, doctors, sex therapists and teachers that will teach classes on massage, Tantra, BDSM, communication, as well as demonstrate techniques and show you how to add to your own, personal sex lives.

You will go away with better relationships, more understanding of one another, inspiration and new knowledge.

Divina Couples Cruise Cuisine 2016

Divina Couples Cruise 2016 main restaurant

Dining on the Divina

New cruisers often ask what food options are actually included in the cost of a cruise.  The answer is everything except the specialty restaurants.  To simplify it there will be options all day and night!

Read the review or watch the video to find out more!

Divina has two main dining rooms: The Black Crab (Decks 5 and 6) and Villa Rossa (Deck 6). The Black Crab, the larger of the two, is decorated in black, gold and purple with marble touches throughout.  Villa Rossa, with its gold, black and red color scheme, has sweeping panoramic views from Divina’s aft.

Both restaurants feature the same menus and hours. Breakfast is served from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m., lunch from noon to 2 p.m. and dinner begins at 6:30 p.m.  though times vary occasionally. Dinner consists of five courses: starter, soup or salad, pasta, entree and dessert.

Buffet
Manitou and Calumet, located on Deck 14, are Divina’s casual buffet options. The two adjoin, essentially forming one mammoth buffet area.  At breakfast, served from 6:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. Early risers can grab a continental breakfast there from 6 a.m. to 6:30 a.m., and those who show up from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. can also get a continental breakfast.
For lunch, from noon to 4 p.m., options include burgers, fries, stir-fry and a carving station. The carving station routinely offers the best protein option; for example, chefs carved a whole, fresh turkey during one lunch. And, of course, there’s plenty of pasta.

The buffet includes a pizzeria, open from noon to 4:30 p.m. and from 5 p.m. to 3 a.m.

Divina offers an afternoon buffet, with limited options that include fruit, cheese and salad, from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., and a make-your-own-sandwich bar is open from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and again from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m.

Dinner, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

Specialty Restaurants
The best dining experience we had onboard came at Eataly Steakhouse, which serves excellent salads, soups, pastas and steaks. The restaurant is simple and modern, with faux wood tables and clear, acrylic chairs.
Service, too, is attentive and knowledgeable. The restaurant features an exceptionally knowledgeable sommelier, who explains what is recommended and what the characteristics of every wine are. Eataly features a la carte pricing, with pastas starting at $8.50 and entrees ranging from $15 for lamb or salmon to $25 for an 8.5-ounce tenderloin. Veggie sides are $3. Attached to the steakhouse is Ristorante Italia, which serves a different prix fixe menu each night for $34 per person. There, menu options represent the various regions of Italy; they include Tuscan selections like Citrus-infused seafood passatelli or lasagna and Sicilian favorites like spiced braised veal cheeks and stuffed sardines. Both are open only for dinner from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.

The Galaxy Nightclub is a hopping disco at night, it serves a daily luxury brunch for $28, which includes breakfast items such as omelets and waffles and options like oysters and foie gras, as well as one glass of Prosecco per person. From 7 p.m. to 11 p.m., dinner is served there, with several different Mediterranean fusion menus. Passengers can choose a la carte options (with appetizers starting at $7.50, pasta and rice starting at $7.50, main courses starting at $12 and desserts for $5) or choose from one of three price fixe options. The Saturno menu offers courses for $24 per person; the Venere menu is five courses for $35; and the Galaxy menu is seven courses and includes a glass of wine with each dish for $59 per person.

La Cantina di Bacco (open 6 p.m. to midnight) is a small but charming spot on Deck 7. There, wine- and beer-lovers can chat over a glass of wine and a tapas plate (olives and bruschetta, for example), included when you purchase drinks. This is also the best place on the ship for pizza. It’s delicious, with flakey, thin crust, and the ingredients taste fresh. The spicy pizza, with its hot Ventricina salami, was a favorite, as was the vegetarian. Pizza pricing starts at $8.50 per pie, and one pizza serves two comfortably.

At the Sports Bar on Deck 7, it’s clear Divina is aimed at American passengers. (The menu even reads “American Food Experience.”) Dining options are strictly of the bar/finger food variety and include Buffalo wings, chicken tenders, burgers and wraps. Prices are a la carte. For $7, the burger is the best onboard — juicy and melty.

Gelato — really amazing gelato — is available at two spots on the ship: Cafe Italia on Deck 7 and poolside on Deck 14. Cafe Italia also features pastries and chocolates. Pricing at both spots is a la carte. Segafredo Coffee Bar is located on Deck 7 and offers a variety of caffeinated options, including espresso and cappuccino, for a fee.

Room Service
A small room service menu is available all day, but a small service charge applies to orders placed after 11 p.m. Pizza delivery service is also available.

Yacht Club Dining passengers have additional options for dining, including Le Muse, which offers an upscale option to the main dining room. It serves breakfast (7 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.), lunch (noon to 2:30 p.m.) and dinner (6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.) in a serene, Greek-inspired space at the aft. Select beverages are included. As in the main dining room, meals are served in five courses, which are heavy on seafood and pasta options. The unique French onion soup there was a hit, as were the cherries jubilee and baked Alaska. Healthy and vegetarian options also are available.

For a less formal meal, Yacht Club passengers can grab a continental breakfast (granola, fruit, cheese and pastries) from 7 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. or snacks from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Top Sail Lounge. High tea is available there from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Overall we thought the food on the MSC Divina was fantastic!  We sailed on the Couples Cruise Yacht Club takeover in April 2015. Our favorite restaurant was Le Muse which is a specialty restaurant set aside for the Yacht Club only.  We also enjoyed the main dining room.  Curious about what’s served there?   Here is a full week long copy of all the sample menus from the main dining room.

This video tour will show you exactly what the cuisine in the restaurants is like and you will also find out about the specialty restaurants that are available for a slight up charge.

 

Enjoy the taste of Italy: MSC Divina has partnered with a number of famous Italian brands to bring a taste of Italy onto the ship to reinforce the differences versus other cruise lines.

  • They have a partnership with Nutella. This is a chocolate spread that was created just after the Second World War as a way of making chocolate go further. Now it is a popular chocolate spread, and you can have crepes with Nutella in on board. They are fantastic.
  • They also brought the Eately chain of restaurants and deli on board. Eately was created in Turin, and it’s a concept of slow food, great ingredients, great food, and very careful slow cooking. They have two restaurants on board, one has a steakhouse spin and the other serves a premium set menu.
  • They also have an arrangement with Disaronno, which is a liqueur from the Sorrento part of Italy. It’s a recipe that dates back to the 1500s and used a lot in cocktails. There is a Disaronno bar near the infinity pool serving cocktails, including one which was created for the MSC Divina.
  • Segafredo Coffee, which is a famous Italian coffee, is also now on-board. Cafe Italia mostly sells it but there are other various places around the ship where you can get a nice cappuccino, latte or espresso.
  • The most popular partnership of all is with Venchi Gelato. This is more than just ice cream – it is a gourmet pleasure! It is absolutely delicious and freshly made.

Italian Food:  Although there’s a wide range of food of all types including standards like hamburgers and hot dogs, there’s a strong Italian theme weaving through it and I would encourage you to embrace that.

  • The Eately restaurant has great Italian food
  • There is another restaurant, La Cantina di Bacco, which has the most phenomenal pizzas I have ever had. The pizza oven is right there in the restaurant and you can watch the chef making the pizzas.
  • On the last night in the main restaurant is the Italian menu. A beautiful menu with loads of Italian dishes and tables decorated with the colors of the Italian flag. Towards the end of the meal the waiter comes with massive tiramisu desserts beautifully decorated with the Italian flag colors.

Drink Package Updates

MSC Divina is offering awesome drink packages during the Couples Cruise.  The real gem may be the Drink Voucher Program

All drink packages can be ordered for your account after you complete online checkin. Booking numbers to complete on-line check in should be available about 30 days prior to the cruise.  Don’t confuse the TSC ‘booking’ invoice number with the MSC booking number for online check in.

MSC beverage policy, rules and allowance

Here is a guide to the many options available on the MSC Divina. There are more options than on most cruise lines, so it takes a minute to digest, but the good news is that there are more options to suit the needs of our passengers giving you exactly the plan that is best suited for you.

Bringing Alcohol on board

Bringing liquor onboard MSC Cruises ships at embarkation is not allowed. No beverage or food can be brought, unless there is medical necessity. Bringing champagne or wine onboard is also not allowed. MSC or its agents have the right to confiscate alcohol that was brought onboard by guests.

Note: Every charter, we see tons of confiscated liquor that people try to hid in their suitcase, in bottles of water (easily found by shaking the water bottle) and other places.

Purchasing liquor from MSC cruise ships’ duty-free shops and while on shore (in ports of call)

Alcoholic drinks, including spirits, beer, other liqueurs and wines, are available to purchase onboard at fixed price. Any liquor that has been purchased in ships’ duty-free shops is retained till the last night of cruise. Alcohol purchases that have been brought in from call ports will be held safe and later delivered to passengers’ rooms – on last evening of the voyage (until disembarkation).

MSC Cruises beer list

Specialty bars on MSC ships

MSC themed lounges go beyond alcohol and include chocolate, coffee and ice cream bars and, of course, wine, beer and martini bars.

MSC Cruises drink packages

  • The More-for-less packages are available only for the Caribbean and have to be booked on MSC Cruises website up to 3 days before departure.Note: We are expecting the booking numbers for MSC online checkin from Couples Crusie about 30 days out.  That will give you plenty of time to book the drink package that suits you best.

Divina Couples Cruise Accomodations 2016

Getting the most out of the Divina with Couples Cruise

The Ship is Adapted for North America: What? That’s different than Royal Caribbean or Celebrity. This is a Mediterranean style cruise line with a strong Italian influence. There are six official languages on board MSC Cruise ships. However, they realized by bringing the ship into North America permanently that they needed to tailor it more to the North American consumer because it’s likely the ships will be mostly filled with these passengers. They have made a number of changes including:

  • The dominant use of English except for emergency drills and messages.
  • Recruited a Cruise Director to join the MSC Divina with many years of experience on developing programs that are liked and enjoyed by North American passengers.
  • Evolved some of the dining options to make sure it’s got many of the staples well liked within the US.
  • The staterooms have US plugs as standard, so you don’t have to bring adapters.
  • The currency on board is Dollars and not Euros.

acomm 1
MSC Divina’s spacious cabins are decorated in tones of blue, yellow, orange and brown. Each standard cabin features a European king bed, vanity seating area & closet and drawers with plenty of space.

The bathrooms feature showers with glass shower doors and dispensers for body wash and shampoo.

The Divina’s inside cabins range from 138 to 169 sq ft. Her oceanview cabins range from 130 to 215 sq ft. The ship’s balcony cabins range from 182 to 317 sq ft, including the verandahs.

Divina Couples Cruise Pre-Cruise & Hotel 2016

We have had some calls about rooms being sold out at the Couples Cruise hotels.  Our recommendation is to first try the link.  If that doesn’t get you a room on the nights you want, then give the hotel a call directly.  There seems to be some glitches with the hotel online booking.

Free Pre-Cruise Party:  Couples Cruise is hosting the official pre-cruise party at a club called the Regency.  This club is adjacent to all of the host hotels and great news… This is a FREE party! Awesome!

There are several pre-cruise hotels located in the Marriott Hotel complex (Crowne Plaza, Marriott, Residence Inn & the Marriott Courtyard). There are free shuttles from the Miami airport to the hotels.  There will be paid shuttle ($10 per person) services that can be booked from the hotels that will be set up by Couples Cruise that will take guests to the ship on Saturday morning, April 16th.
