Overview Itinerary
The Ship
Cruises on MSC Armonia focus on taking you to your destination in style, comfort and luxury. With innovative facilities, spacious staterooms and a varied entertainment scene, each journey passes effortlessly. Spend days at sea in the swimming pool and hot tub or take part in a game at the sports centre. There's a peaceful library and several shops to enjoy, as well as a great spa area featuring massages, steam baths and a beauty salon. Kids are also kept entertained with their own age-specific clubs, games room and water park. Dine on international cuisines at a range of casual and elegant venues which suit guests of all tastes. After dinner, visit the casino, theatre or disco — or just relax at one of the bars and lounges, instead. The welcoming and contemporary MSC Armonia leaves you relaxed and rested for when you arrive at your destination.

Food
MSC Armonia chefs create an international range of dishes from fresh ingredients to make sure there's something for all guests. Go to La Brasserie for snacks and light meals or visit Il Girasole during days around the pool for an extensive menu of food and drinks. Marco Polo Restaurant and La Pergola Restaurant are your two fine-dining venues. With a sophisticated and elegant atmosphere, you can enjoy a range of dishes — from traditional favourites to new creations.

Drink
Day and night, you have a selection of places to enjoy a sociable drink on MSC Armonia. The Red Bar is a stylish venue serving a range of spirits and cocktails, while The White Lion Pub offers a more traditional tavern setting with a range of refreshments including wines and ales. Visit Caffe San Marco — which includes live piano music — or enjoy a cold drink during the day at the pool bar.

Entertainment
Aboard MSC Armonia, spend your days at the swimming pool area — featuring a whirlpool — or enjoy some activity at the walking track or sports centre. There are several shops on board, as well as a relaxing cigar lounge, Internet cafe, and library. Enjoy peace and relaxation at the professional spa, which sits beside a gym, relaxation room, beauty salon, and steam baths. Kids of all ages have plenty to keep them entertained, too. There's Doremi Spray Park — with fun water features — as well as a Lego area, games arcade and club for teenagers only. In the evening, you have a large music and dance area to enjoy, alongside a grand theatre with staged entertainment. There's also Starlight Disco and Palm Beach Casino to visit if you're staying up late.

Pay a visit to Jamaica's most historic plantation house, Rose Hall. Get active with a zipline adventure tour or go scuba diving and snorkelling at Montego Bay Marine Park. No trip to Jamaica would be complete without a trip to Ochos Rios; home to the famous Dunn's River Fall and Mystic Mountain.

Once a pirate stronghold, this cosmopolitan destination now features a traditional Caribbean style and a high-rise financial centre.

You can also find the famous Seven Mile Beach on the western coast of the island — often labelled the most beautiful beach in the Caribbean — where you can have a go at snorkelling and diving. Enjoy duty-free shopping, stop for a cocktail on the coast, and sample the diverse food scene — which has been greatly influenced by European and Caribbean flavours.

Today, the ship docks at Cozumel. This tropical island in the Caribbean Sea sits just 12 miles off Mexico's coast and features beaches, ancient Mayan ruins and coral reefs.
