MSC Lirica Cruises

4
(from 5 verified customers)

MSC Lirica has been in service since 2003. In November 2015 she was refitted and extended by 24m, at 65,591 GT, with 194 cabins added – to carry 1984 passengers. Her Italian décor avoids the neon glitter of some cruise lines, and accentuates marble, wood, brass, and soft furnishings.

The ship offers good value for the cruise fares charged, and a truly Italian-style cruise experience in stylish surroundings. Children have three play areas and their favourite, an ice-cream parlour.

Highlights

  • Experiencing something new to savor every moment aboard, it will come as no surprise to hear travelers grow lyrical that MSC Lirica cruise ship is the heart of their voyage, no less than the incredible destinations she takes them to discover.

  • There are new spacious cabins with balconies to delight the guests with superb panoramic views. Also the enlarged restaurant and buffet areas to serve up an even greater variety of culinary treats.

  • Choose from staterooms in the most desired locations (including Super Family staterooms where available) located on the upper decks, with rapid access to elevators and lounges.

Cabins

Two-thirds of the cabins have an outside view, and of these just one-quarter have a private balcony. Interior and Ocean View cabins are small at 12.9 sq.m. All cabins have interactive television, air-conditioning, telephone, hairdryer, mini-bar/fridge, safe, wardrobe, bathroom with shower, and cotton towels. Two single beds can be converted to a double bed. Outside cabins have a large rectangular viewing window.

The 132 suites with private balcony come with a large double bed, a sitting area with sofa, a substantial walk-in wardrobe, bathrobes, a well-stocked mini-bar, and an expanded bathroom with tub. The suites are well laid out and nicely furnished. Many ‘Ocean View’ cabins on deck 7 have obstructed views, so be alert to this. For all cabins continental breakfast is complimentary from 7.30 to 10 am, while room service snacks can be bought at other times, but there is a per-item charge for other orders. For suites, a basket of fruit is provided at embarkation, and replenished daily. There are four cabins for the disabled, and no single cabins.)
