MSC Armonia, the first of four MSC’s cruise ships to be enlarged and enhanced under the €200m Renaissance Programme, will be relaunched on 19 November for an inaugural cruise.
MSC Armonia’s comeback cruise will depart from Genoa, Italy, on 19 November 2014 with her sights set on Las Palmas in the Canary Islands.
Over 10 days she will call at some of the Mediterranean’s choicest destinations: Marseille, Cartagena, Gibraltar, Cadiz, Funchal, Santa Cruz de La Palma and Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
Following her inaugural cruise, MSC Armonia will be deployed for a range of 7 night cruises to destinations like Morocco and the Canary Islands.
MSC Armonia will offer more balcony cabins, more spacious common areas, flexible new dining options and new dedicated clubs for younger guests of all ages. She will also have a new Spray Park – a fun-packed wet zone with interactive jets, slides and ingenious water features.
On Sunday 31 August MSC Armonia entered the Fincantieri shipyard, in Palermo, Italy, where she will remain for 11 weeks.
Over the next two and a half months, Fincantieri’s team of world-class shipbuilders will lengthen the ship by inserting a prebuilt 24-metre section containing 194 extra cabins. In addition, they will refit and renew many other parts of the ship, upgrading the level of comfort, entertainments and services available on board.
