Dining doesn’t stop with pizza. Of course the Calumet and Manitou Buffet restaurants are popular choices for breakfast, lunch, and even laid back dinners after a day in port. With open seating for breakfast and lunch and set seatings for dinners, the Black Crab and Villa Rossa are MSC Divina’s main restaurants with wide varieties of menu options, including wonderful pasta. While large, each restaurant is elegantly designed in such a manner that dining seems intimate. The food and service have been exceedingly good.
To take a taste of Italy home with you, the Eataly Shop is stocked with such ingredients such as Gragnano Pasta, RIO extra-virgin olive oil, and Slow Food meat sauces. To brush up on your Italian cooking, there are also cookbooks to create authentic dishes.
While we haven’t had the opportunity to try it yet, the Galaxy Restaurant sounds appealing with its à la carte menu of Mediterranean fusion cuisine and trio of three, five, or seven course Gourmet Dinners paired with wine selections to complement each course.
Complimentary snacks are also abundant. In addition to the buffet restaurants, self-serve ice cream cones are available every afternoon beside the Aqua Park pool and croissants are found every morning at the Divina Bar and Café Italia.
At the heart of MSC Divina is one of our favorite spots for a specialty coffee, pastry, or gelato—Piazza del Doge, where the atmosphere is quiet and relaxing during the day and lively with music and dancing every evening.
Naturally there is room service around the clock for continental breakfast and sandwiches, salads, soups, fruit, cheeses, and desserts throughout the day. A $3.50 delivery charge applies for orders from 11:00pm to 6:00am.
