  3. MSC Armonia
Went on this cruise because I wanted to see Havanna,Mexico and Jamaica. It was my first cruise, and I rely enjoyed this way of traveling! We had everything we redden on board! What I did not like, which i recon is the same whatever cruise you do is this: The food waste in restaurants was a shame to see, also thinking about all the poverty we saw ashore. There should have been solicitations on that in the restaurants! Also thinking about MSC`s partnership in UNICEF. I know that this is a hard task, but there are some hotels etc. that have done something about it. Like guest paying for the food waste etc. Also saw a lot of very tired and overworked staff in the restaurants. Long hours, heavy lifting and a lot to do. This two are th main thing I found very sad about the cruise. Also experienced the the estimated hours and real time for the excursions could vary in a couple of hours. That's too much when you have to plan your day. We also had to visit the doctor on the ship, she was great. The only thing we miss was that she should been licensed to document days of sickness. Travelers need that for getting replacement for lost holidays. Finally, when the bill came, we got a lot of "extra service payment". I checked it out, and did find out that it we voluntary to pay, but yo put it on the bill, without explanation on the bill.

Good and bad
