  3. MSC Armonia
Msc had a decent offer on, somewhat comparable to carnival price wise but were adding in a drink package so we figured why not try it out However we were sadly very disappointed. From the awful cabin state, things broken, exposed rust, mouldy and wet it was a sickness waiting to happen The ship also has next to nothing to do, there are few activities and if they are scheduled from 3-5 (example crafting) and you show up at 4, you're told you cant join... for what looked like a 10 minute craft. If they schedule 90% of events overlapping but then large gaps of nothing you find a whole lot of bored guests. Not to mention (which would normally not be the ships fault, but in this case is) the sports areas were closed all week due to "high winds" no, the winds were not high, the captain wanted to show off how fast he can sail only to then stop and float for hours ... what'sthe point of that? We have cruised several times with other lines anand had no complaints at all, we are not hard to please but this ship was dangerous and boring.

A ship that is in desperate need of retirement

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom – Fantastica
Cabin B2
Their cabins are falling apart, we had to move rooms because our first cabin had water under the floors seeping up through the grout and was littered with black mould

A large portion of the 7th floor was also flooded so a foul odor came up through the stairs.

The new room wasnt any better, shower door magnets fell of the ceiling, toilet stopped working, one day we didnt have any hot water....

Food was bland, they even screwed up pasta, some was under cooked some over cooked (all in the same bowl) and the sauce was equivalent to Campbell's tomato soup, consistency as well. The bad food was doused in salt, since it was devoid of any other flavour.
