MSC Armonia

One of the best loved vessels in MSC's fleet, the 58,625 ton MSC Armonia sails around the Mediterranean in summer and chases the sun, sailing from Tenerife & Gran Canaria, exploring the Canary Islands, during the winter.

Majestic in stature but intimate and welcoming at the same time, MSC Armonia can carry just over 2,000 passengers and a crew of over 700. Newly-restyled, the ambiance on board is refined and casually elegant with the Mediterranean sense of style that has always been a hallmark of MSC Cruises. With a high space and service ratio, guest comfort is at the forefront of an MSC cruise.

Following on from refurbishments in November 2014 under the Renaissance Programme, the new-look MSC Armonia has been enlarged and enhanced, has more balcony cabins, dedicated clubs for younger cruisers and features tailor-made areas for children that have been officially designed, equipped and endorsed by Chicco and LEGO.

Ship Facilities

With several gourmet restaurants and a 20-hour buffet, you’ll find somewhere to eat that’s perfect for you.

  • Marco Polo- the largest main dining room onboard, here guests can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner. With classic dishes, comfort food and tasty desserts, you’re bound to find something to please your palate.
  • La Pergola- open only for dinner, this second main dining room is more intimate than Marco Polo, while offering the same menu.
  • La Brasserie- always popular on a cruise, MSC’s buffet-style restaurant will have you coming back again and again to fill up your plate.
  • Il Girasole- if you’d like to enjoy your meal outside, Il Girasole provides covered outdoor seating with excellent views.

In addition, there are various smaller eateries dotted across the ship, where guests can enjoy ice cream at La Gelateria, smoothies and juices at the Vitamin Bar or coffee and pastries at Caffe San Marco, although these treats do come at a small additional price.

Evening entertainment onboard MSC Armonia is a goldmine of fun waiting to be discovered by each and every guest. Whether you enjoy a drink in a quiet bar or a livelier and more energetic night of performances or live music, the venues onboard cater to every taste perfectly.

If you’d like to catch a show during your cruise, head to the Teatro La Fenice. This large theatre hosts six shows a week featuring music, dancing and acrobatics. For those wanting to try out their luck, there is also the Palm Beach Casino, complete with slot machines, table games and a small bar. Alternatively, if you’d just like to enjoy a drink and maybe some live music, there are lots of other venues from which to choose:

  • Moulin Rouge- piano bar
  • White Lion Pub- English-style pub
  • Cigar room
  • Bar del Duomo
  • Armonia Lounge- featuring a bar, karaoke nights and a dance floor

With a big focus on families, MSC Armonia has great facilities for guests of all ages.

  • MSC BabyTime- a dedicated space onboard for parents/carers to play with the youngest guests.
  • The Mini Club and Junior Club- designed for kids between 3-6 years old and 7-11 years old, here children can enjoy Lego-themed play, team challenges and games consoles.
  • For teenagers, there are two clubs- one for those between 12-14 and one for those between 15-17-where they can escape their parents and hangout with others their age.

In addition, parents/carers will be pleased to learn that there is a private babysitting service available at an extra cost, perfect for those wanting to finally enjoy a long-awaited date night.

Spa and fitness

Downtime onboard MSC Armonia can be spent however you wish. Visit the Aurea Spa to experience a traditional Balinese massage or take advantage of the stunning sea views while you work out at the well-equipped gym.

However, getting active onboard doesn’t have to involve a trip to the gym, so get that blood pumping up on deck with a game of tennis or basketball, reach new heights on the climbing wall or test your golfing abilities with a turn on the miniature putting green.


Daytimes onboard MSC Armonia have a wealth of activities for guests to enjoy. Nothing says “cruise holiday” more than hours spent lounging by the pool with a drink in hand and with two pools, sun loungers and hot tubs, choose your favourite spot and settle down for a day of relaxing. Inside, cruisers can find several shops where you can find a range of duty-free bargains.

Customer reviews for MSC Armonia

Lovely smaller ship, great crew, nice food, good entertainment, nice cabin

I would never go on another MSC cruise. The boat was ok - quite old but that was not the problem. We had so little time in each port apart from Cuba. They were disorganised in getting you off the ship - particularly when tendering. The food at the buffet was tepid. I blame the buffet for me being sick on the Saturday evening. At the buffet you had to wander around for quite some time to find somewhere to sit. Many people did not use the hand sanitiser - towards the end of the week they had someone at the buffet spraying your hands - but people walked past unchallenged. The food in the restauarnt was better but service was slow. And I did not like the fact that you could go in the restaurant in shorts for your evening meal. It lowers the tone. But I have also never seen anyone visit the reception of a cruise ship in their pyjamas and dressing gown accompanied by too males that had obviously taken advantage of the unlimited drinks package with two roll your own cigarettes behind their ears. And on Monday morning at the buffet a man with a tshirt F_ _K Mondays I hate them! The trip in Jamaica to Dunns Falls was 4 hours on a bus and 1 hr 25 mins there and you were rushed - not even time for a drink before you were herded back on the bus. In Cozumel as it was tendered and they were inefficient then there was no time to get off and look around so had to wait for 2 hours till our trip time - then a further 25 mins when we arrived at our allocated time - so after the trip we had about 30 mins to look around. We didn't find out how little time we would get in port till after we had booked. Cuba was the only destination where we had some time to look as we had an overnight. Lots of people had coughs on the boat and I have had to get antibiotics to clear mine. I was not surprised to read last week that a plane was quarantined as people were ill with chest infections following a different MSC cruise. I have previously been on three P&O cruises and they are of an excellent standard - I would score P&O with a 95% satisfaction and MSC at 15%
