In 2014, MSC Armonia emerged from a major renovation that added approximately 80 feet to the vessel’s midsection. The 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 bedding by Italian designer Dorelan. Although MSC Armonia, which means "harmony" in Italian, does not have the razzle-dazzle diversions and décor of its much younger and larger cousins, it does deliver a pleasant way to sail to far-flung ports of call at a price you’d be hard-pressed to find on other lines. Bonus: Even at its larger size, MSC Armonia remains cozy and relaxed, and its understated decor aligns with traditional vessels of yore.
