We originally chose this cruise for late 2019 purely on its itinerary but they cancelled it on us. We then had to search and rebook, having to bring the trip forward as well as carefully choosing a cabin on a ...

MSC Armonia - You need to up your game!

We have cruised many times before but never with MSC. We had heard mixed messages regarding MSC but as this fitted in with our dates that we wanted to visit Cuba, we thought we would give it a try. We had a night in ...
