I choose the MSC Armonia because my daughter recommended it and because of the price for an Ocean view. In general, the ship is small and old but that is not the most relevant of the cruise. Our expectations and needs were around: Jacuzzi, Casino, food, live music and musicals. It was hard to be inside the Jacuzzi and we decided to go early in the mornings. The Casino is small and there is no many machines. The food was very good and varied (Buffet and restaurant), and the pizza and gelatos excellent. The Italian musical is wonderful, the singers are virtuous. The best of the cruise: The Duo Express at the Rum Bar, beside to be exceptional musicians, they have the ability to entertain people from different nationalities, with a big variety of music. Maggie and Patrick were always ready to attend you, preparing and serving drinks. At the restaurant we were served by René, a very nice boy from El Salvador. Our table was very international (4 couples: 2 Poles, 2 american (North Caroline) one Philippines girl with an american boy and us (Latin people).One of the most important characteristics o this cruise is the opportunity to share with people from different nationalities and languages, which should be the standard of the crew; however, an employee from the restaurant went to the american couple and asked them if they want to move to other table due to "our accents" . This action promote discrimination and is unacceptable. The crew should promote interculturality; by the way, they are from different cultures and nationalities.
The cabin was ok but the shower is very small.
