Launched in 2001, MSC Armonia is the oldest ship in the MSC Cruises fleet. Back in 2014, however, the ship underwent a major renovation that added approximately 80 feet to its midsection. This expansion created nearly 200 more cabins and new facilities such as a solarium, music lounge, and water park. It also refreshed the cabins with TV upgrades and Italian bedding. Although MSC Armonia, which means "harmony" in Italian, does not have the razzle-dazzle diversions and décor of its much younger and larger cousins in MSC’s fleet, it does offer an enjoyable way to sail to far-flung ports of call at a price you’d be hard-pressed to find on other lines.
