I was invited by Samantha Cox for a tour and lunch on board the MSC Armonia today.
The cruise liner was built in 2001 for the now defunct Festival Cruises as MS European Vision. In 2004 the liner became part of MSC cruise liners.
The ship has just under gone a 2 year refurbishment, and the first of 4 cruise liners in the MSC group for the Renaissance Programme, making the ship larger, and many new features.
The cruise liner was cut in half and a new 32 meter section was added, a short video below shows this.
New features include 94 new balcony cabins, childrens areas including the spray park and lego room. New restaurants, bars, the Aurea spa and massage along with lots more.
The ship is very family friendly with 5 different aged kids clubs from 6 months to 17 years, giving the parents plenty of time to relax and enjoy their time on board to.
A few photos from our tour and lunch on the ship below and I have many more on my FLICKR page.
