Review summary

We had a great experience with MSC. The Armonia feels a bit outdated and common areas are too small. The pool area was the biggest disappointment and the dining areas did not have enough spaces to sit.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
This was a very easy process and the staff is very nice.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Honestly....a little disappointed in the food in the main dining room especially. Three in our party ordered the clam chowder and there were no pieces of clam or potato. It was just awful. Italian night at the buffet was the best.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Pool(s) are entirely too small for that many people. It was actually a little bit of a scary experience. You could not move in the water at all. Little kids were hanging/sitting on the ladder and all the older adults were sitting in the children's pools. I was actually very disappointed in the pools.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
This staff/crew are really great. They were very energetic and fun.

Children's Programs

No children that young

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our room stewards couldn't have been any more accommodating. Great service from everyone actually. Very friendly staff.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Yes. It was very clean. The only issue was the smell of smoke on the deck with the cigar/smoking room. It was really awful.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
A little bigger than I expected based on other's descriptions. But the bathroom is itty-bitty.

Ship tip

Go early for meals. There is not enough seating.

I would give this 100 stars!! Loved, loved, loved this port.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

4 out of 5
Not my favorite but it was beautiful.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
Great port. We did not do any excursions. We rented "dune buggies" ourselves and went around the island. We are not big on group tours so this was perfect.

Key West, Florida

4 out of 5
It was nice but a huge disappointment when we were prepared to go to Havana, Cuba. I tried to remain positive but Key West, Florida is not Cuba.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Very organized and easy.
