This is our 5th time on Armonia, and we never chose it because of the ship or the cruise line. The first time was because it sailed from and back to Las Palmas which is 20 minutes from our home so it was very handy. Prior to sailing MSC we ... Read more

I read the reviews about this ship extensively before sailing, and have to admit most of the negative ones are quite accurate, this is not a luxury cruise, but a functional ferry, guests embark and disembark at every port. We chose it ... Read more

We gave MSC a second shot having previously sailed on Musica and not rated it highly BUT this cruise was cheap and went to some interesting ports. Flight from Gatwick with BA was brilliant, a quick and easy transfer from Genoa and we ... Read more

The food was horrible - i tried to get as many meals as i could off the ship. And the service in the restaurants was extremely bad. One night we waited more than 30minutes before getting bread, water or drinks. Another night we asked for a ... Read more

This was our 30th cruise and 3rd on MSC. We like MSC, but it is definitely a little behind some of its competition. You really need to know what you are getting into the ships are not like travelling on American, British or Scandinavian ... Read more

The first day we boarded the ship, we had our carryon luggage with us. They made us carry our luggage up a flight of 28 metal steps to the 6th floor, instead of allowing us the short ramp to the 4th floor just a few yards away. They are ... Read more

every cruise line has a care of duty to their staff and their guests, they must never put you in danger, they must be helpful, have patience, be understanding, use common sense, have the time to talk to the guests, have the decency to say ... Read more

This was a first time cruise for my mother (early 60's) and I (mid 30's) and we were both very impressed. The cabins were immaculate and spacious, we had a large window on the 7th floor which I would thoroughly recommend as you can enjoy ... Read more

My husband and I were offered this cruise at a very good price, of which we were a bit sceptical, but we need not have worried. We also took out the Allegressimo package for our drinks, a must if you like a drink or two. We booked a ... Read more

This was our first venture with MSC, having cruised 4 times previously with Royal Caribbean and was the first time we have cruised without our son. I don't recall the eureka moment that steered us onto this booking but, book we did and ... Read more

I will start by saying this was our 57th cruise and the first time on MSC. Never again. Definitely not the kind of cruise we are acustomized to. Although we did pay a really fair price for the cruise please beware. They will nickle and ... Read more

Some poor reviews and left me with what turned out to be unfounded concerns about to expect on this cruise. Our embarkation went like clockwork as did pretty much everything else on the cruise. We had a mini suite on Deck 12 and it ... Read more
