Overview

MSC Armonia first debuted in 2001 and was the first to receive the Renaissance Program updates in late 2014, which added dining venues, two Lego playrooms, a water spray park, additional staterooms and more. The ship offers four stateroom categories: Interior, Ocean View, Balcony and Suite. All cabins include TVs and minibars.

When it comes to dining, the ship boasts four eateries, but no specialty restaurant. Passengers can choose between a number of bars and lounges, including a cigar bar and a disco. After grabbing a nightcap, you can head to the La Fenice Theater or the Palm Beach Casino.

During the day, cruisers can enjoy two pools, mini-golf and the Sports Center. While adults are getting treatments at the MSC Aurea Spa, kids and teens can play in specialized areas, including the new Chicco playroom designed for children under 3.

Despite the ample amenities, one point of contention among recent cruisers is the absence of quality service. Since the ship only carries about 721 crew members for all 2,679 guests, some travelers said the service is slightly slow and disorganized. 

In 2019-20, MSC Armonia departs from Miami for sailings in the Caribbean and the Antilles. Armonia is one of the four ships in the fleet that sails to MSC's new private island, Ocean Cay.
