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

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: MSC Lirica / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

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.

Not quite the cruise I expected by SeanSteve

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: MSC Lirica / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

7/10 Fantastic value for money with the all inclusive food/drink, a must. However, MSC Lirica is the oldest ship in the fleet, quite a mix of nationalities including lots of Russians! The daily entertainment was 'Butlins like!' therefore with the extra day at sea it wasn't great on board, not much to do. Finally, I would prefer cruising around different countries or Caribbean beaches as one Emirate is much the same as each other.

MSC ABSOLUTELY SHOCKING! by ewop123

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: MSC Lirica / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

I decided to get off the ship after being onboard for 55 minutes. It’s absolute chaos. Crew have no idea what is going on. Ask questions and get a different answer each time. Food was diabolically bad. The moment I saw dripping blood off roast pork, I knew I couldn’t continue on this voyage. I packed up my suitcase and got off the ship. I found the ship to be a safety hazard. I hope my negative review helps people better choose their cruise ship and please don’t choose MSC.

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Lirica / Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

European style cruising for a good price. Recommend if you are used to traveling on your own outside of USA.

An eventful solo trip. MSC is a great cruise company if you're on a budget. by librarianelaine

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: MSC Lirica / Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

I would cruise MSC again. They were cheap so I could pay double as a solo in an ocean view rather than an inside room. I could also add on the premium drink package and Internet in my budget. Food was excellent in my opinion.

MSC Lirica Eastern Med 18-25 October by allyro54

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Lirica

I loved every minute! I thought the destinations were fantastic. The staff onboard were all amazing and I loved the food. Only problem I found was the rudeness of some other passengers can be very annoying when you are used to everyone being well mannered.

Our first cruise experience by jollypostman

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Lirica / Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

This was our first cruise and although we were impressed with the cabin, staff, food and destinations, we were very disappointed with the shortened time changes in some of the ports. This meant we didn’t fully experience everything we had hoped to in Crete and Kefalonia. We would otherwise recommend MSC but have decided that cruising isn’t really our type of holiday. We may however try one again in the future.

Good but could have been better by Banjo

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Lirica

In general the cruise was good apart from the noise in the cabin issue. Although only our third cruise with MSC, we had Gold Cards due to their loyalty match scheme which gave us a few little perks

MSC Lirica 7 Night Med Cruise by nicolojo

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: MSC Lirica

We did enjoy our holiday on Lirica, but totally spoilt by the lack of sleep. Unfortunately nobody seemed to take the complaint seriously. I travelled with mum, who was 75 and to have barely any sleep all week, just ruined our trip.

Great time! We will make... by Ratinho

Sail date: /
Ship: MSC Lirica

Great time! We will make a new cruise, for sure. Everything was great and the staff very helpful and kind. We only had a little problem with a waiter, just because of our nationality. Well, one person doesn't represent all other awesome persons of the staff.

Venice cruise round trip to Athens by stephenmeeks

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: MSC Lirica / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

Overall the food was fair, but not great. The 11th floor aft buffet space is too bunched up and crowded for guests movement around the buffet and between the tables. There is barely enough room for two way walking traffic at the service lines. Moving the rails 1/2 meter out from the service bar would help. Move the larger tables out of the aft window viewing areas and put smaller tables for two guests in their place. There are many windows that could be easily washed from the deck that are very dirty all around the ship. Having picture windows on a ship that are unnecessarily dirty is very poor staff management.
