Review summary

We enjoyed our time on the Armonia. The service from the crew was very good. The ship offers a nice variety of activities. There is not a lot of pressure to buy or upgrade like I have encountered on other ships. (Except we were approached too many times about the drink package upon arrival.)

It went very smoothly. Lines at our arrival time were not too long. It moved quickly and smoothly.

The stage shows were fun. They were not the best I have seen on ships, but they were full of fun energy.

We were well pleased by the cleanliness of the cabin, and the professionalism and polite consideration of our cabin steward. Very attentive without being intrusive.

Ship tip

Check your itinerary daily. Take advantage of some of the many offerings. There is something for everyone to enjoy. Don’t be afraid to ask for something. They are very accommodating.

Ports of call

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

Several ships were in this day. The port was very nice, but a little crowded with all the passengers there at once.

Beautiful, small private island. It is still being developed, but is lovely so far. No pressure from local vendors to deal with. The lunch buffet provided by the ship was very nice. It was a long line, but moved efficiently. They are adding a second buffet as the construction continues. That will be helpful for the wait.

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

4 out of 5
An NCL ship arrived before us. Therefore we were assigned to another dock. We were given a map to navigate the original dock. We were confused by the switch. No information was given on this. We spent money on a taxi ride that ended up being totally unneeded. It created confusion for us and others.

Miami, Florida
