Great cruise with MSC by DariaL

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

In overall I'm very happy about my cruise. Price was very good and I revived great service. Ship was clean, food delicious and plenty of things to do on board. However there was few things I didn't like: A lot of activities like "free hairdresser consultation" are just about selling you stuff. It was really annoying. I was very unhappy about my excursion to Xcaret Eco park, in your offer you say it takes about 45 minutes to get there when in fact it was almost 2 hours. I didn't have enough time to enjoy. If I know before that it will take so long to get there I would chose different excursion. Shows could be better. More interaction with guests. Despite of this 3 points above I would take this cruise again.

Great Itinerary, Ship Could Be Better by rshaffer64

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

Overall we had a great itinerary, but the ship could have been better, and I recommend buying your excursions from MSC not American Airlines. You can buy them at a discount from the carrier if you buy them earlier

Not too impressive by dbrambora

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)

Cuba was very nice, but try to take another cruise line. This ship is small and feels crowded.

Well below my previous MSC experince by nish778

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

Two years ago my husband and I sailed on MSC Divina , we has an amazing time so this year we decided to invite another couple since we had a blast the last time. Guess what as we enter the on the boat the décor was so outdated and not what we was not accustomed to. Later on we finally walk to the room and guess what the cabin had a mildew smell which thankfully I packed a air freshener plug in. Day 2 I found a roach on the mirror and I killed it I was shocked. I called the front desk and they sent someone to remove it. I asked for a different room and was told that they were 100% booked and I had to wait until Wednesday to see if they have another room available. " That's three days that I had to sleep in the room" Lets fast forward to Day 4 the day before Cuba we were told that in order for us to get off the boat you need to have a People to People experience which starts at $55 up to 200. So we paid for the excursion the night before we arrived to Cuba. People note to self you can get off the boat without paying the excursion fee. Guess what the cruise Director Miguel made an announcement once we docked in Cuba that if you are independently getting on the boat without a people to people excursion you may do so. So we tried to request for a refund and was told that they could not issue a refund. The Customer Service was the worst as well as misleading. Please set up your own excursion ahead of time for half the price. " they made it seemed as if it was mandatory" Also don't pay the $ 75 to have MSC get the VISA on your behalf you can purchase your own Cuba VISA in advance for $10.00. Also if you exchange your money please do it while on the boat rather than in Cuba port. If you are from the US -1 usa dollars is 87cents in Cuba yes our US dollars don't mean anything. On the boat you can get a refund to what you haven't used, at the port it will be less. Ex: I exchanged 100 in US and received $85 in Cuba monies. Needless to say this will be our last time cruising with MSC.

Below average overall by markhofkin

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group

Experience definitely worth my time , however some things could be improved . Biggest problem is the quality of food. The chef has no Imagination at all, even one week is too long of an exposure to his art. The second problem is the length of stay in Havana which could be extended Whereas some other ports were not worth my time. The ship and cabin design are very good for the price point.

Awesome Cuban Cruise by WindyCityMark

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

We weren't sure what to expect as cruising is new to us. It was structured, but organized. We had a great time. The bartenders were a "little" slow with making the drinks and some seemed more interested in socializing with the customers vs. making sure all customers were being helped. The pool was small, but surprisingly it wasn't that crowded and we were able to find a lounge chair and enjoy ourselves by the pool several times during our trip. The ports of call were fun - and the cruise director had a "show" on the TV where he would explain the activities of the day - which helped keep us on track. The lines for the gelato stand were always very long, so we had to wait at least 15 minutes before getting to the front, but it was always worth it. The shows in the theater were enjoyable. Each night we would take a drink and sit outside the buffet restaurant and watch the waves and enjoy the night. A very relaxing way to end each night. Overall, the staff was helpful, food was "ok", accommodations were comfortable and we had a great experience on the MSC Armonia. :)

Mixed Review; Some parts great; a few, not so much. by Oftencruiser

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

Ship is very well-run, very clean, and the staff is friendly and helpful. Food is good and the stage shows are outstanding. The ship is heavily Latin-influenced, though, in its music and deck entertainment. I don't blame them, as probably 80% of the passengers are this, and they are just playing to the majority; if you enjoy this music, etc; then you are fine. If you are from the US, just be aware that you are very much in the minority here. Treat this cruise like a visit to a foreign country and you will be fine! By that I mean that the ports ARE all foreign countries, of course, but when you get back on board, it is usually like you are "Back in the States". Here, that is not the case. Bon Voyage!

Disgusting MSC Cruise by HappyHippieNat

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)

I have been in a total of 10 cruises before going on the MSC Armonia. I have been on Norweigan ships, Carnival ships and Royal Carribean ships, I never thought MSC would be this horrible. The only thing holding this cruise up is the crew and the itinerary. We went to Montego Bay, Jamaica; Grand Cayman; Cozumel, Mexico and Havana, Cuba. Other than that, it is my opinion that this ship needs to retire....There is nothing to do on the ship other than the shows. The crew for the kids were amazing, so amazing they were very good considering they had very little tools to work with the kids, 20 stars for the kids crew. I could not take a shower without water falling all over my floor. Everything I needed to wash my feet I needed to open the shower curtain and turn off the water so that I can bend over and clean my feet. The bathroom since day 1 stunk so bad like pee and poop, I am sure that the bathroom had not been thoroughly cleaned in at least 6 months. It is digusting! Please please please, since the ship is already due for retirement, at least keep the rooms clean, I felt so disgusting showering and using that bathroom. My daughter almost threw up a few times. It was not only my cabin we had a big group and out of 5 cabins all were in the same exact terrible condition. YUCK!

Great cruise to Cuba by lrheeter

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

The crew members,I believe you call animation team, were the best I have ever experienced.Although the cruise and ship was somewhat average,Except the Cuba part ,which was Great, I've never had as much fun as we did with the entertainment team .They were all great but for me Graham and his friend(forgot his name) were unforgettable. This was our 46th cruise and easily the most fun. Thanks

Very nice Italian Cruise by Tstaadt

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple

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.
