Review summary

If it wasn’t for the services and crews onboard I would have felt disappointed. The main dining and breakfast decks weren’t necessarily pleasing. But I appreciate the effort putting forth by MSC Armonia. Cruise was a success... thank you !

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Main dining room, specialty restaurant (Marco Polo), and breakfast had pretty much the same foods everyday. However, the service was great and classy. Great staff members.

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
I wish there were more activities. After 2nd breakfast there wasn’t much going on, ship was quiet. Nothing on top deck . Like, where is everybody? Gym can use some upgrades and the towels in the gym can cut your face if you don’t careful. Towels look old. Need new towels

Service and Staff

OMG! Though ship is old inside and out, MSC Armonia has one of the best crews in the business. Like a big family. Angel and Oscar from Marco Polo, and Myrene my room steward, thank you , thank you guys. Lots of love!!!

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Elevator smells like brakes burning. Shower so small, it hurts when it is time to shower. Layout is convenient. Ship was not that clean because it is old and needs a lot of fixing. But every time I walk in my room, I am pleased. Great job Myrene!

Cabin / Stateroom

I slept like a baby. Thanks to my room steward. Room was kind of small but ok. Shower WAY too small. But I love the way my body feels on the bed and under the sheets. Great job! Thank you !

Ship tip

Check the review on the showers. Painful to take a shower. Hope you are not big on entertainment. But prices affordable. Review the ship after the 21 days make over to see if anything improved. But as for the services, you are in good hands.

Great time there . Great locals


Ship supposed to go to ocean Cay but ship didn’t go for whatever reasons. Disappointed!!! Then found out on the ship after embarkation. They offer a credit of $100 per room, not per person . I am still fumed over not going to ocean cay and I demand reparations.
