MSC Armonia is a Lirica-class cruise ship owned and operated by MSC Cruises. Originally built in 2001 for the now-defunct Festival Cruises as MS European Vision, she has operated for MSC since 2004. At 58,600 gross tons, she can accommodate 2,065 passengers in 783 cabins and 760 crew members.

Even before MSC Armonia sets sail, stepping on board is like embarking on a voyage of discovery. With its impressive array of new features and facilities, the ship is now even better equipped to satisfy every need.

We’ve added spacious new cabins with balconies to delight our guests with superb panoramic views. We’ve enlarged the restaurant and buffet areas to serve up an even greater variety of culinary treats.  We’ve included a new 330 m² area to fill with music and dancing.

Each of the MSC Armonia cruise ship deck plans is conveniently combined with a legend (showing cabin codes) and a detailed review of all the deck’s venues and passenger-accessible indoor and outdoor areas. A separate link provides extensive information on MSC Armonia staterooms (cabins and suites), including photos, cabin plans, and amenities by room type and category.

MSC Armonia (2001-built/2014-stretched, last refurbished in 2019) is the first (and oldest) of the Lirica-class MSC cruise ships – together with Lirica, Opera, Sinfonia. The Armonia ship entered the MSC fleet in 2004. Before that, the boat was operated under the name “MS European Vision” by Festival Cruises (1992-founded/2004-defunct).

MSC Armonia cruise ship deck plan shows a total of 975 staterooms for 1950 passengers (max capacity is 2340) served by 770 crew-staff. Before the stretching, MSC Armonia had 777 cabins for 1554 pax (max 2223). The boat has 13 decks (9 passenger-accessible, 5 with cabins), 4 restaurants, 10 lounges and bars, 2 swimming pools, 2 Jacuzzis (outdoor whirlpool hot tubs), 9 elevators.MSC Armonia decks are named after precious gemstones.
