MSC Armonia arrives in Cuba for first time

MSC Cruises has introduced a second ship, the recently fully refurbished MSC Armonia, to homeport in Havana alongside MSC Opera.

MSC Armonia earlier marked her traditional Maiden Call as she arrived in Havana on the final leg of her Grand Voyage from Genoa, Italy.

MSC Cruises was the first global cruise line to homeport in Havana, Cuba in 2015 – adding both Havana and Isla de la Juventud to its popular Caribbean and The Antilles itineraries to meet the ever-growing demand from international guests looking for even richer itinerary options in the region.

The introduction of a second MSC Cruises ship marks the continued expansion of the company in the region and will offer a greater choice of itinerary destinations.

Not only this, but itineraries start with either two or three days in Havana, allowing guests the time to fully experience the city from the comfort of their cabins.


As a result of the increased capacity, UK guests will now be able to cruise year-round from and to Cuba, both in summer and in winter.

Antonio Paradiso, country manager of MSC Cruises UK said: “At MSC Cruises we are committed to continuously enrich itineraries for our guests, allowing them to discover new destinations and cultures in a unique way.

“We were very proud to be the first international cruise line to offer Cuban destinations to guests and are now delighted to commit to added capacity and year-round sailings.”

Both MSC Armonia and MSC Opera recently went through a complete upgrade as part of the Company’s €200 million Renaissance Programme and they are now ready to offer guests unrivalled levels of comfort, service and entertainment.
