Last MSC Cruise

Sail Date: February 01, 2007

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The ship did have some nice things and rather elegant.

Pros: Most food

Cons: Cheap beds, small shower, cold and stringy lobster tail, nothing to eat after supper, raunchy entertainment, Italian crew had troubles with American ways.

Recommends MSC Lirica? No.

Ship Quality
Theater was too small but the ship was well maintained.
Food and Dining
Food was generally good but way behind NCL's Freestyle cruising. No buffet for supper.
Cabin / Stateroom
Good except beds and shower.
Service and Staff
The grunts were very good, but the Italian crew left with the feeling that they thought they were important, not the passengers.
Stage shows were good, but the traveling entertainers were crude.
