Always love cruising on the Armonia. The ship is small enough to be friendly, where the staff in the restaurants and bars greet you by name, nut big enough to have plenty of entertainment venues. We always love the entertainment on MSC as they have really good bands playing a wide range of music. Also, the mix of Europeans on board means the dance floors at usually full. Not like us Brits who never want to be the first on the floor! Ok, so the announcements in half a dozen languages can get a bit wearing at times, but that's a small price to pay.

This ship was mine and my boyfriend's very first cruise. And I must say I'm very glad that we picked the MSC Armonia for our first experience. We will always have a fond memory of this ship, as it was the ship that got us hooked on cruises. The staff were wonderful. Loved the pools and the Deck, (the Splash Park was so much fun, for children and the kids like us.) The atmosphere on this ship was absolutely wonderful, would sail again.

2nd cruise with MSC. Definitely a different experience to the Divina. However the buffet was much more manageable during breakfast, due to half the passengers on this smaller compact ship. Dining was 1st seating for us, 1915hrs. However we are always on Irish time.... So that can vary by an hour... it's grand though. I didn't like the starters most refund so I had two main courses ???? The service was much the same, as you would expect. Pool bar service can get busy and Heugo works constantly at 100% steam ahead. The guy never stops. The shows, I personally found just ok. Still impressive, a little short and show times where's little late for the 2nd seating. During the day, at sea or at port a lot of the bars and more importantly, the coffee bar was closed. The coffee bar only opened at 1700hrs. Sometimes it seemed that there was too little staff and they were stretched thin. The gym was small but had everything you need to do a session. The pub on the 5th floor probably for me had the best music. Acoustic. The down side is this is the smoking area. Yes! Indoors but open plan. Unfortunately you can smell the stale smoke even out to the reception. To be honest smoking should be in a closed off area with extraction fans etc just like the cigar room is. The room, 8261, 8th floor outside with window was comfortable enough. The worst thing was the toilet needed fixing 5 times on the 2 week cruise and we were without Aircon for 2 days. We were compensated by means of caviare twice, a bottle of prosecco once and chocolate dipped strawberries once. 46°c in the Caribbean with no Aircon at night isn't ideal!!. I think we are finished with MSC now. This was my 12th cruise and 4th liner. I think from now if possible it will be NCL as I still think they are the best company to do with. But each to their own.

The Armonia was my first cruise with MSC which was enjoyable. A couple of my complaints was more about the passengers then the cruise. Firstly the passenger who done the transatlantic crossing the week before smoked in the cabin for 21 days. So by the time I boarded everything inside the cabin smelt. I couldn’t even sleep in my cabin and the refused to change cabins because the cruise was full. I had to get them to deep clean the cabin three times before I was able to sleep in the cabin. Then, the passengers didn’t really participating in the activities. For example the white party had more spectators than participants, and there weren’t many spectators. But I had to make the most of it. The staff was really nice and the ports were amazing.

Just back from fabulous med cruise. Not sure why people give staff bad reviews. We found staff friendly, helpful and attentive. They took time to get to know us and our preferences and took pleasure in providing us with what we wanted whether it be meals, drinks, photographs or information. We even met a crew member who was on one of our previous cruises on Magnifica. This was our first time on a smaller ship and prefer the mid size, but based on our experience we wouldn't hesitate to book Armonia again.
