MSC Armonia (MSC Cruises)


MSC Armonia, formerly European Vision, was acquired by MSC when her previous owner Festival Cruises, was bankrupted in 2004. Built in 2001, she’s MSC’s oldest ship and is one of four Lirica-class ships.


In August 2014, she underwent a major 2 year renovation including a ‘cut-and-stretch’ addition of a 25m midsection. This gave her 200 more cabins, more entertainment areas, shops and public spaces.
