MSC Armonia

MSC Armonia

Welcome to the renewed MSC Armonia. She is the first of four MSC Cruise ships to enter the Renaissance Program, an ambitious two year operation making her smarter, bigger and more beautiful. She will offer more balcony cabins, a greater choice of flexible new dining options, dedicated areas for youngsters of all ages and larger open spaces. These new enhancements will combine with MSC Armonia’s existing array of fantastic features, such as her two open air swimming pools, distinctive restaurants and bars and the ever popular Fenice Theatre, to create a magical cruise experience that you will treasure forever.

MSC Armonia will have 94 beautifully appointed balcony cabins, each redesigned to bring our guests total comfort and style amid a wealth of features. Quality pillows and mattresses created by leading Italian bedding designer Dorelan means always waking up refreshed and primed for a new day of discoveries. And our ensuite bathrooms are fitted with stylish contemporary wet units that optimise space without compromising on comfort.

We believe food is a key ingredient that can turn a good holiday into a fantastic one. With ‘choice’ the watchword, MSC Armonia has new restaurants and bar experiences, an authentic Italian ice cream parlour and skilled chefs offering timeless favourites and world cuisine influenced by the itinerary’s ports of call.

MSC Cruises puts a lot of thought into younger travellers’ needs, which can be very different from those of their adult counterparts. Many Renaissance enhancements are being made with this in mind, not least of which a new Youth Centre housing separate clubs for the baby (0-3), Mini (3-6), Juniors (7-11), Young (12-14) and teens (15-17) age groups. MSC Armonia will be the first ship in the fleet to offer dedicated areas and activities for 12-14 and 15-17 year olds, including a well equipped state of the art NAMCO Virtual arcade. In addition, any guests from 7 to 17 can sharpen their gaming skills on Wii, PlayStation or Xbox consoles.

An MSC Cruise is always packed with entertainment for all ages and tastes. Each day onboard MSC Armonia will offer 20 hours of spectacular shows and activities, many inspired by the fascinating countries and cultures encountered en route. Music, dance, creative workshops, fitness and wellbeing, kids’ parties and inspiring expert talks are just some of the choices in our extensive programmes. And our dedicated onboard spaces provide the perfect setting to bring our itineraries on board, be it a full blooded flamenco performance, a spicy Moroccan evening or a multi faceted show inspired by the wonder of nature.
