The Cruise Examiner for 10th March 2014..MSC Divina

As MSC negotiates with STX France and Fincantieri for its next class of larger, but shorter, and wider cruise ships, we have a look at what shape they might take compared to others. As this month sees eight “Northern Lights” cruises going north from the UK into the ice and snow, we also have a look at those crazy cruisers who like to sail into the cold weather in February and March. Will it catch on elsewhere? Meanwhile, all three of the “Royal Princess” class ships will be based in Europe in 2015, the new P&O flagship Britannia, the Royal Princess herself, returning to the UK for the first time since her christening last year and the Regal Princess based in Copenhagen.
