MSC Armonia

MSC Armonia

Due to concerns about the spread of the coronavirus and Covid-19 disease, MSC Cruises has extended their global suspension of operations until May 29, 2020.


The MSC Armonia is famous for being split in half during renovations in 2014 to have a new center section added while in dry dock. The renovation, called the Renaissance Programme, took just eleven weeks to complete, and added a kids' spray park, refurbished shops, new child and teen areas, an enhanced buffet, a new lounge, and an extended restaurant. It also added 78 feet to the length.

This medium-sized luxury cruise ship carries 2,679 guests in a casual, elegant atmosphere with updated cabins, enlarged restaurant areas, and special features for families, including a high ratio of staterooms that can accommodate third and fourth guests in one room.

Built in 2001, the Armonia is a Lirica Class ship, sister to the Lirica, the Sinfonia and the Opera. With the latest in technology, the Armonia offers modern luxury and classic Italian style while providing guests with family-friendly entertainment and panoramic views of the sea. The ship has 9 passenger decks, 2 pools and 10 bars and lounges, along with a mini-golf course, video arcade and casino. In December 2018, she arrived at her new home in Miami, where she will provide cruises to Mexico and the Caribbean, including Cozumel, the Cayman Islands and Jamaica.
