Because of the hurricane Dorian our 7 day cruise was delayed leaving from the Port of Miami. This resulted in us missing the first 2 days of our cruise. Other than that everything went perfectly. Boarding went very well. We had requested 2 wheelchairs to board and after 10 minutes the chair pushers arrived and very carefully pushed up the jet away to the ship. This was the first time we were in a fully air conditioned jet away. It made it very comfortable. We were taken directly to the buffet and seated at a reserved table for handicapped passengers. As soon as we got in line a crew member immediately came over and asked if they could help hold the plates. We thought that was very caring and thoughtful. After eating we went to our cabin and checked with the front desk to see if any handicapped cabins had opened up since when we booked none were available. We were told they had to check with the guest services manager, Chanel, and call us back. Since we had an outside cabin moving us to an inside handicapped cabin was a downgrade. After seeing the other cabin we immediately agreed to switched since it gave us so much more room for our walkers and no steps into the shower. We noticed there was no note in our cabin with instructions for the Meet and Mingle Party so we called the front desk and they were able to tell us the information. They said the letter would come later. We went to the life boat drill and were relieved that we did not have to stand for an extended time. Since we were. Black Card Members we were able to dine in the Surf and Turf Restaurant one time at no charge. The service was excellent as well as the food. Food in the main dining room was okay and the service was excellent. Our cabin had a small TV with remote that had a built in sleep timer. The air conditioner was very strong so we asked for more blankets. The cabin stewards were always dressed in very elegant uniforms. They did an excellent job in keeping the rooms neat and clean. We were able to get room service every morning and had breakfast in bed at no charge. The pool was wonderful, it was salt water. They had a fully automated chair lift to help handicapped persons in and out of the pool. The pool temperature was just right. Nearby the pool was a Gelato Bar which was free and delicious. There also was a pizza bar which had several different kinds of pizza. There also was a hot dog, sausage and burger bar near the pool. Every day they had at least 3 Trivia games which we enjoy. We love to play so we can expand our knowledge and also for the competition. Maverick was our favorite Trivia caller. Their game of Quest was a lot of fun. Their shows were excellent. The movie theater was very spacious and comfortable with a nice sound system. We loved all the Ports of Call. We were fortunate to be invited to have dinner with the Captain and the Hotel Director Robert. The Captain had a great sense of humor. He also was very informative. The food was excellent and the service was elegant. When it came time to debark we had to get up early and were wheeled off the ship quickly. Special recognition to Chanel from Guest Services, Maverick from Cruise Directors staff and Joice , translator, who was an all around angel. Thank you for making our cruise really special. Read Less

We originally chose the Armonia because of how cheap the price was. I sailed with my husband and two kids and my mother in law. We had two ocean view cabins on the 8th floor. I knew going on the cruise that I shouldn’t expect too much from it just from reading previous reviews and watching videos on YouTube prior to sailing. Yet, I hate to say that even with low expectations I still wouldn’t sail on this ship again. First off, the ship is very very old and it clearly shows on the appearance of it. The lido deck floors are all chipping apart and the chairs upstairs near the pizza area and the hamburger areas were wobbly. The ship was “re-vamped” in 2011 and all I could think about is the fact that it still looked like nothing was done. The buffet area upstairs in uncomfortably tight. Even for a smaller ship and less people it felt more crowded then the ships I’ve been on with 6k+ passengers. The rooms were extremely tight and uncomfortable. I’m surprised they would even put three people in that small of a room. The bed in our room was broken and nothing was done to fix it. The ac felt like it was never on all over the ship and especially in the cabin. And the shower frame fell and hit my son. There are two pools both which were a decent size but with disgustingly warm and extremely salty water. They only had two hot tubs that were so small and only fit five people each. There was always a line to get in the hot tubs. The kids splash pad was probably one of the nicest splash pads on a ship that I have been on. My kids really enjoyed it. The food was below average in the buffet and dining room. We did really enjoy the breakfast options but lunch and dinner had barely any options other then the pizza, burgers, hot dogs, salad and fries. The five to eight options in the buffet were not good. The shows were not good except for the last night show which was the abyss which we enjoyed. There were barely any activities throughout the day so we spent our time mostly in the room or on the pool deck or eating. Overall, I knew to not expect much from this cruise but I was still disappointed. I wouldn’t go on the Armonia again. I would rather pay more and actually enjoy my cruise. Read Less

Best staff! Plenty to do! Good ports! Clean ship! Price is right! We booked MSC again as we were previous cruisers on the MSC Divina. Wife & I had a fabulous time! The only con was the internet WiFi which was hit or miss most of the cruise. Adequate portions in the dining room. Plenty of chairs around the pools. Plenty of selections in the buffet for breakfast & lunch. All day/night best pizza on any cruise ship! Late night snacks in the buffet every day. La Perloga restaurant served dishes from different countries which were very tasty. The ports of call were great. Roatan, Honduras: Monkey & Sloth Zoo & Botanical Gardens. Costa Maya: Port Pass for just $39 per person which included the Bird Aviary, Chocolate Factory Tour, Tequila Tasting, 3 drinks, & a chair at the beautiful port pool. Cozumel: We walked along the main road. Had lunch at an authentic Mexican restaurant, and shopped within the 2 ports in town. We were scheduled for Key West but Hurricane Dorian kept us away. 2 extra free days back to Costa Maya & Cozumel. Thanks MSC! Easiest embark & disembark process! We will certainly cruise again with MSC! Read Less
