MCS Cruises now has a page dedicated to the New MSC Armonia cruise countdown, which has the number of days, hours and minutes left. There are currently 42 days, 9 hours and 30 minutes as of writing this. That’s not all, as the company is also showing off a countdown promotion for the newly refitted Armonia.
If you manage to book on the inagural MSC Armonia cruise it will be an all-inclusive one, and so comes with a free drinks package, 3 MSC excursions, and a 30 percent discount off all laundry services. That is not all, as this first cruise following the MSC Armonia’s refurbishment will be packed with a number of celebrations while heading to the Canary Islands.
Remember, this is a one-off and so you really do need to get on this cruise, as you will be one of the first to try out the new facilities. Such as the refitted staterooms, improved restaurants, revitalized shows and tasty food during the Special Gala Dinner.
MSC has said the Armonia changes have been made with the passengers in mind, as everything onboard will suit your needs.
WHAT’S NEW ON MSC ARMONIA
CABINS TAILORED TO YOU
There are few cruise experiences that compare to stepping onto your own private balcony and gazing out at the ocean.
MSC Armonia will have 94 beautifully appointed balcony cabins, each redesigned to bring our guests total comfort and style with a wealth of wonderful features.
Quality pillows and mattresses created by leading Italian bedding designer Dorelan mean always waking up refreshed and primed for a new day of discoveries.
And our en suite bathrooms are fitted with stylish contemporary units that optimise space without compromising on comfort.
DINING TAILORED TO YOU
We believe food is a key ingredient that can turn a good holiday into a great one.
With ‘choice’ the watchword, MSC Armonia has exciting new restaurants and bars so that you can experience the authentic pleasure of an Italian ice cream parlour, savour timeless Italian favourites and world cuisine influenced by the itinerary’s ports of call.

AREAS FOR KIDS AND TEENS
MSC Cruises puts a lot of thought into younger travellers’ needs, which can be very different from those of their adult counterparts. Many Renaissance enhancements are being made with this in mind, not least of which a new Youth Centre housing separate clubs for the Baby (0-3), Mini (3-6), Juniors (7-11), Young (12-14) and Teens (15-17) age groups.
MSC Armonia will be the first ship in our fleet to offer dedicated areas and activities for 12-14 and 15-17 year olds, including a well- equipped state-of-the-art NAMCO® virtual arcade. In addition, any guests from 7 to 17 can sharpen their gaming skills on Wii, PlayStation or Xbox consoles.
Our new Baby Club, for under threes, has been developed with market-leading childcare company Chicco. Not only will it be the first under 3 MSC area, but it will also be the first baby area at sea to carry the famous Chicco brand.
The whole MSC BabyCare experience has been built with Chicco’s knowledge, expertise and products – from training MSC’s child carers and defining onboard activities, to the strollers, bottle warmers, baby bouncers and shore excursion backpacks we offer to parents. With Chicco, MSC Cruises has made cruising totally stress-free for young families.
OUTDOOR SPRAY PARK
What is more, the renewed ships will each feature a fantastic new outdoor spray park – a fun-filled wet zone packed with interactive water jets, musical fountains and slides.
WELLNESS TAILORED TO YOU
MSC Cruises has created a range of special pampering spa experiences that will help make your cruise a meaningful journey that leaves you rejuvenated, centred and happy.
Additional room has been devoted to our unique Aurea Spa massage spaces. MSC Armonia now has a massage room for individuals and another for couples, where a menu of select treatments can be enjoyed.
MSC Aurea Spa is unique to MSC Cruises, offering the latest gym, spa treatment and beauty facilities in sumptuous surroundings. You will be served by expert Balinese masseurs, beauty therapists, manicurists, pedicurists, hair stylists, yoga instructors and personal trainers. A qualified spa doctor will be on hand with a private consultation room available as required.
ENTERTAINMENT TAILORED TO YOU
An MSC cruise is always packed with entertainment for all ages and tastes. Each day onboard MSC Armonia will offers 20 hours of spectacular shows and activities, many inspired by the fascinating countries and cultures encountered en route.
Music, dance, creative workshops, fitness and wellbeing, kids’ parties and inspiring expert talks are just some of the choices in our extensive programmes.
And our dedicated onboard spaces provide the perfect setting to bring our itineraries on board, be it a full-blooded Flamenco performance, a spicy Moroccan evening or a multi-faceted show inspired by the wonder of nature.
MSC Armonia’s elegant new music lounge, her Fenice Theatre, bars bursting with personality and shimmering dance floors are where firm friendships are made and memorable moments shared.
Why not leave the winter in your wake and enjoy a cruise aboard an elegant ship full of new and innovative features?
