most enjoyable cruise by garaldcarr

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Armonia / Destination: Caribbean - Western

We enjoyed the cruise and especially the staff in the dining room. Our suite was so nice we spent about 40% of our awake time sitting on the balcony enjoying the sailing. It is an older smaller ship and provides a comfortable feeling without all the mega ship diatribe

I enjoyed the cruise. It was just what I needed. I have been on a hand full of cruises enjoying them all in a different way. I would love to go on a larger MSC shop next trip with you!

Great Winter Getaway by Pburgcruisers

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Armonia / Destination: Caribbean - Western

It was a very affordable winter getaway. Booked three weeks before cruising. Being a smaller ship without all the fancy stuff it wasn't overwhelming. Nice ports, good food. Just simply relaxing.

Great Cruise on a smaller ship by DeaconJim

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: MSC Armonia / Destination: Caribbean - Western

The wife and I are frequent cruisers having been on 25 previous ships in both the Carribian and in Europe. I was concerned before the cruise that the smaller, older ship might not live up to our expectations. This Armonia Cruise was excellent. Of course the staff was the reason. Dinning in the Marco Pollo and the Turf & Surf was delightful. It is a friendly cruise. The cabins were adequate but the Cabin Steward was the best. I highly recommend this Western Cruise.

7 nights on msc Armonia by martink243

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: MSC Armonia / Destination: Caribbean - Western

A good cruise from embarkation until return to Miami. The ship is not quite as "flashy" as some of the other cruise line. I especially liked meeting so many Europeans who were making the cruise. I booked the cruise because of overnight stay in Cuba which was cancelled. I was unable to enjoy most shows because the theater is too small to accommodate everyone and people were often standing and blocking the view

The good outweighs the bad by arcticman

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: MSC Armonia / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Overall a great cruise. I feel MSC is just a few short steps of being on par with Princess and RCL. MSC wins on price, but with a little refinement could competing every category

A total nightmare!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! by pjbuttons

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Armonia / Destination: Caribbean - Western

I and a few other people were not allowed to get on the cruise ship. Although it was 4:45pm, the ship was scheduled to leave at 6pm, we were told it was too late to embark. We were then told that we had the option of meeting the cruise ship in Falmouth, Jamaica which we agreed to. However when we arrived at the terminal in Falmouth, we were told that the cruise was cancelled. I spoke to an MSC agent in Jamaica who was not helpful; we were stranded in Jamaica. There was no sort of communication, I did not receive a courtesy email or phone call from the cruise line. We had to return home. So much for a vacation!!!

Sub-par Cruise by lmaskel

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Armonia

Nice itinerary, but horrible food. This ship is due for a redo in April and they are letting everything go downhill. Dining room steward, Justin, was EXCELLENT, but food was never served hot, and tasted really bad. Justin’s assistant needed more people skills and training. Breakfast in the dinning room was a joke — allow an extra 45 min if you eat there. Waitstaff isn’t working for tips there,so they serve plates at your table at different times. Poorly organized. The buffet was no better. Sub par food and very poorly organized. Sanitation stations worked about half the time (bring your own hand sanitizers!). Shows were great, and dancers were AMAZING. But chairs in the theater were often broken. All windows, especially cabin windows, needed serious cleaning. Ocean Cay was a SUPER EXPERIENCE, except for the food court which had thousands of flies around the food. We rented a cabana which was well worth the $$. Missed Jamaica due to wind, but that gave us some extra time at the pool which was nice. Almost missed Costa Maya due to wind had it not been for our wonderful Captain who was able to maneuver our ship dockside. State rooms were kind of small, but clean and neat. Elevators were fast and efficient.

Bas customer service by jerryli46

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Armonia / Destination: Caribbean - Western

The customer service is very bad, they charge 180 dollars for a few pills for tooth pain. This absolute acceptable. They are so rude and don't care what happen for their guest.

Fantastic ship and crew! by Jmetz

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: MSC Armonia

I had an amazing cruise and thoroughly enjoyed the ship and the staff. Everyone was very friendly for the most part and there was always something to do. I have been on the big 5000+ person ships with all the bells and whistle‘s and I had more fun on this ship!

Our first cruise was great! by sandyussia303

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Armonia / Destination: Caribbean - Western

This was our first cruise, and we didn't really expect to like this sort of vacation. But we actually found that we did like the relaxed pace, and the fact that it seemed more European.

Small Ship, Big Benefits... by commissionerluz

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: MSC Armonia / Destination: Caribbean - Western

MSC Armonia is a nice, small ship for a week cruise in the Caribbean. All the staff, except for Customer Service Desk staff, are super friendly and welcoming. Stick to the buffet for food, and definitely visit The Pizza Bar (WOW), and of course the Gelato Bar - neither disappoints. Too many days at sea though if you skip a port, which is very tough on a smaller ship, but we made to. $2200 for two on a balcony suite is totally steep compared to other companies, but this Italian ship is good for traveling Italians. Their private island, Ocean Cay, truly is THE BEST PRIVATE ISLAND IN THE BAHAMAS! Small ship, big benefits!

Disappointing Basic Cruise - will not bother again by belleb86

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Armonia / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Overall we will not return to or recommend the cruise line based off of the poor planning and the little attempt to recover. It is at mediocre experience sailing with MSC. I had not even bothered yelling at anyone but I kept getting your survey emails. A decent company would now at last offer something to save face but I doubt it will happen. A swindle of a cruise line offering "European excellence" that did not exist during our trip. Terribly, Terribly disappointed that I chose your line over another when I have so little chance to vacation.
