Overall Member Rating
MSC Lirica - Southern Caribbean
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
We liked the entertainment variety. The More singers and dancers were energetic and colorful. The best act was a ventriloquist/comedian who had at least a dozen voices in a variety of languages. Les De Merle played drums and sang with his 15-piece band. They played all the big band favorites. We never saw so many couples dancing with the band as well as with an up beat tango/cha cha duo, a trio, and at the deck party. They knew all the fancy "moves." We spoke with people, listened to music, read books, got some sun by the two pools, played cards, and generally relaxed, doing things we don't seem to have time for at home. Sounds dull? Not by a long shot.
Of the 17 cruises on various cruise lines that we have taken, this one was easily in the top third for variety of enjoyable features and camaraderie. The food was only average, mainly due to the less-than-average beef dishes; but the seafood (especially the salmon) was great. The menu choices were numerous and even included an International Menu with unique choices. Several repetitive alternative entrees and pasta were available at every dinner. There were two "Captain's Cocktail Hours" with free drinks. The crew was extremely friendly and smiley. Less
