Great cruise and great staff, food, and entertainment. by busiaof4

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

I was concerned over MSC as some ratings were low; however, other than the misunderstanding on the drink package covering all drinks as in my other cruises, it was an amazing cruise with exceptional staff. If I were to offer any advice to MSC, I would say have (1) one level of drink package: it's either all inclusive or not. Why have an "easy" package (which wasn't cheap) that won't even include the drink special of the day? That really felt like a rip-off personally and financially.

Excellent cruise, I will return by juanchobernal

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

I have made more than 10 cruises with more than 4 different shipping companies and this seemed one of the best. We were staying in a suite in the bow. The unbeatable attention and cleanliness of the cabin and the excellent boat. I will be back.

WORST Cruise I Have Ever Been On by SLValerie

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

This was the 12th cruise I have been on with the 5th cruise line I have cruised with. This was the WORST cruise I have EVER been on and the first and LAST time I will ever cruise with MSC. I spent the first 4 days in line at the Guest Relations desk for Internet (did not have Internet access until the afternoon of the third day) and billing issues...long wait in line each time. There was false advertising for both "unlimited" Internet access and "unlimited" onboard drinks. The cabin beds were like sleeping on bricks and I had to call more than once for towels and cleaning of the bathroom. The food was absolutely terrible both in the buffet and the restaurant (food was sent back EVERY night because it was simply inedible). The theater shows were amateurish and only mildly entertaining; the only show that was really entertaining was the crew talent show. There were no separate activities targeted to 18-30 year olds...a single lounge disco was provided for all ages (ridiculous). There were few onboard entertainment activities for adults (shuffleboard...really??...and the arts and crafts were designed for children). The movies shown in the theater and on TV were at least 3 years old (also only 2 English-speaking non-sports channels on TV) and there was no streaming capability whatsoever. To cap it off, there was no published pricing for the guest pictures for sale at the end of the cruise and pricing appeared to be established on a random basis and very unprofessionally and unethically sold ("pick out which pictures you want and we'll tell you the price"). The price quoted for 10 pictures was more than double the pre-boarding price offered online and more than I have EVER paid for pictures on any cruise. I received a lower price (albeit still higher than I have ever paid) for the pictures only after complaining to the photo department manager. And the quality of the pictures was poor, specifically the background scenery was shabby and every shot had wrinkled "flooring" which makes it clear that the poses were taken in front of fake scenery. I cannot express the extent of my disappointment in this cruise and my experience with MSC...but I will endeavor to share this poor experience with as many people and as many cruise review sites as possible.

Port Pass for Costa Maya Mexico by Chandy25

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

The crew and the staff are excellent. The ship and our room was always clean and tidy. The shows were very good and the daily activities plentiful. The buffet food was good with plenty to choose from everyday. I did not care too much for the main dining room food or choices. Embark and Debark were excellent and the ports super fun.

A ship full of heartfelt warmth, not fake but sincere warmth by piscesbear

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

A ship for a great getaway. No it doesn't have all the bells and whistles like bigger ships but the staff is welcoming and warm. Just what I needed. The Captain is one of the more personable Captains I've come across in all my cruises.

Our First Sailing on MSC Armonia by 2LoveBikes

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

The MSC Armonia cruise was excellent. The weather was good, the crew including the Captain and officers were very visible and friendly. We enjoyed the Cruise Critic reception and the reception and perks MSC provided the us as Black card Voyager members. We enjoyed the no hassle drink package and internet that was included in our fare. The shows were excellent and the entertainment (fun staff) very friendly and kept us entertained. We plan to go back to MSC and the Armonia.

Best Holiday by mrsfox

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

Considering it was cut two days short because of hurricane Dorian, it didn’t make a slight bit of difference to our experience.

MSC on Point! by chett2787

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

2nd cruise with MSC. Smaller but not small ship. Never felt crowded with the boat full. (2400 cruisers) Staff was the best ever! Food was adequate portions & a wide variety for lunch & dinner. Best pizza on the ocean! Always felt welcome & attended to by our wait staff & room steward! Shows were OK but short, maybe 30-45 minutes. Will certainly cruise with MSC again next year!

Spectacular cruise by kiante101

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

I had a great time on this MSC cruise. As I said Kishawn, Jose, Lord, and Nestor was the absolute best. They are a big part of me wanting to do another MSC cruise.

Staff was overall very curteous and accomodating. The food was very subpar. Room for improvement. by kathyanddean4

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

I would only recommend MSC Armonia if you are going in with eyes wide open. It lacks the ship experience that we have had on other cruise lines, but it was economical. Food was poor, moving of people on and off the ship poor, staff overall good, some even excellent.

Just eat the burgers!!!! by septsunseeker

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: MSC Armonia

The cabin was okay if you can forgive the tiny shower. The food was out of a can or a freezer. I compared their desserts to those you find at a Chinese buffet. Horrible. I thought an Italian based cruise lime would have good pastas and breads. Chef boyardee made every meal. What cruise line has buffets that are too often found closed? That serves the same foods every single meal? Food that has either hot spots or ice chunks in it? Who closes ice cream service at 7? Who has one barista for thousands of guest? Whose dining room meals are dry, cold, with meats and lobster so tough you can’t cut it with a steak knife??? Who thinks this is acceptable??? Who puts customer satisfaction last?? MSC!!!!!!!!

Western Caribbean Cruise by antoinerwilliam

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

Overall, I would rate sailing on the MSC Armonia 2 stars...More than likely I won't sail with MSC in the near future. I'll stick with the more updated cruise lines that I have sailed with in the past. I only selected MSC because it had the best itinerary (Havana Cuba). However, on June 5th that all changed and Havana Cuba was replaced with the Cayman Islands which was a big disappointment for me and family.
