Ship Facts: MSC Lirica Review (by Cruise Critic!) | MSC Lirica Deck Plans
Lively, but a bit noisy!

The MSC Lirica is a beautiful ship, very quiet in it's running, but also without the creaks and groans of other ships we have travelled on.

The itinerary was attractive, going to places we hadn't visited before, and overall, we enjoyed the ship and the cruise, but there were a few things that could have been better. We visited, Haifa, Zakynthos, Genoa, Civitavecchia, Messina and Marmaris.

We agreed with many reviewers for this ship, that the food in the buffet is never warm, and if you don't want stone cold sausages/bacon/eggs/toast for breakfast, then the fresh fruit would be a good option!

The staff were pleasant, polite and hard working. They were well supervised, and no slack was tolerated!

Excursions were exceptionally well organised, and getting people off the ship and on coaches is to be especially commended. We can't say the same of the excursions, but the ship's staff did a good job. Similarly, tendering also was well organised, with no one waiting in long queues.

If you want luxury, then take your own toiletries! There was not a lot provided in the cabin - tissues, body wash and shampoo. No ear buds, body lotion etc. however, although the cabins were small, they were very nice and quite well noise insulated. No noise from the next cabins toilet flushing! Plenty of cupboard and drawer space, with a hidden safe and fridge.

If you want a quiet relaxing cruise, there were places on the ship you could go and get the peace and quiet, but generally the open deck areas, were crowded and very noisy. There were a lot of family groups on board who liked to party, and thoroughly enjoyed themselves!

I would cruise with this company again, but it would depend on a great itinerary.
