Ship: MSC Armonia
Cabin Number: 9221
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 1 year ago

Cruising on the MSC Armonia was very comfortable and enjoyable.  Our balcony cabin,#9221, was very spacious and comfortable.  The service was very good.  As non Italian speaking cruisers we found the live entertainment shows and music a little challenging however still entertaining.  

The dining experience in the La Pergola was very good. 

The breakfast buffet on the pool deck was good but average as compared to other cruise lines. 

We had pre ordered a room service breakfast in our cabin and it was excellent. 

We also received a nice fruit bowl delivered to our cabin everyday.  A nice touch. 

The cruise ports were all all very good. However, at some ports the ship arrived in the early afternoon when most of the shops were closed. 


Overall we we had a very very nice time and would cruise with MSC in the future.

Very spacious and enough room under the bed to store our suitcases. Plenty of drawers and hanging space and the minibar fridge was handy. The balcony was great. The TV in the room only had one English speaking news channel. British Sky News and one English movie channel (sometimes).

Ship Tip

Buy drink and water packages . Be aware of the Italian themed entertainment. The evening shows were 30-45 minutes long and you had to prebook everyday for your time slot.

Take the ships excursion bus to Taormina as there isn't much to do in Messina. Taormina is a lovely place.
