We had an excellent flight by Easy jet to Marco Polo airport in Venice, transfer by water taxi to ship an added bonus as our driver took us through the canals of Venice to the MSC Armonia.The embarkation process was first class and we boarded with out a hitch. Purchased Both wine and beer packages which proved to be the best option saving a few euros.Staff on board were very friendly and attentive. Food was adequate,and well presented in the main dining rooms. Tried the buffet restaurant's but unless you like hunting for a table I would give this a miss as your food is generally cold by the time you do get a table.Bars and other public areas were clean and presentable. Plenty of sun beds for all passengers. Life boat drill for those embarking in Venice was efficient but did notice those who embarked in Ancona didn't have to do it why? Main faults unfortunately the ship is geared mainly for Italians who I found to be over bearing and extremely loud and vocal even when sitting next to each other. Time spent in ports of call was very limited. Afternoon tea could have been more varied, also control of persons ignoring notices not to take food into the bathing areas.Other point of concern was that the Forward sun deck was always closed for no reason. The compulsory tips of 7 euro a Day is excessive it should be 7 euro per cabin.I would certainly cruise again with MSC if they can amend these minor faults. Ports of Ancona and Argostoli were adequate but not enough time was allowed for independent cruisers or information available about each port
