Roberto Fusaro, president of MSC Cruises USA, said:

“We are thrilled that in 60 days MSC Armonia will join MSC Seaside and MSC Divina in Miami, further enriching our offer to guests sailing from North America.”

“Not only will we offer MSC Cruises’ guests a brand new attractive itinerary, but also a variety of enhancements to make the MSC Armonia experience that much more memorable. On board, guests will delight in fresh entertainment and new gourmet culinary choices, while on shore, an overnight in Havana will allow guests to fully experience the culturally vibrant city.”

The new cruises from Miami to Cuba are a first for the cruise line and during the voyages, guests will be able to experience Cuban culture onboard along with new entertainment offerings and a brand new specialty restaurant.

The new 38 seater restaurant called “Surf & Turf” will serve a delectable menu for $35, where guests can select an appetizer, main course and dessert from an assortment of gourmet options.
