MSC Lirica

MSC Lirica

Sail date: January 27, 2020

Decent cruise experience. Nice ship and friendly staff with a few pitfalls

The MSC Lirica is not a top-end ship - it may be best categorized as lower mid-end. With that in mind, the fares are excellent for the ship's amenities and itinerary. The food is decent, the service is varied but generally friendly, the entertainment (especially if you love to dance and your concert tastes lean towards classical music) excellent. Much of the clientele are European. I would recommended it if this is what your budget allows for. Great cruising experience on a budget.

Cruise tips

Doha, Qatar

The port is close to the old city - Souq Waqif - and the taxi fares are very reasonable. Very walkable and close to the famous Museum of Islamic Art. The view across the bay to the financial center of Doha is spectacular.

Dubai, U.A.E.

The port was quite far away from the city. Expect a taxi fare of 40 dirhams to get to the nearest metro station.

Bahrain

Port was very, very far from the city - a 50-minute bus ride away. We elected to pay for the ship's bus service since there were no taxis. The city has a bustling old quarter, and is known for the large Al Fateh Grand Mosque - but the mosque was far from the shuttle's drop-off point so unfortunately we didn't visit it.

SIR BANI YAS ISLAND, ABU DHABI, U.A.E.

A private beach with numerous free loungers and sun umbrellas for cruise guests. Not the most beautiful beach - it was pebbly and there was no view to write home about - but it was decent. Large bathrooms and facilities.
