Ship Facts: MSC Lirica Review (by Cruise Critic!) | MSC Lirica Deck Plans
Oops! Won't do that again
Ship is beautiful. Huge lounges! Spacious public areas!

Food was less than marginal. Bar and lounge service was pretty bad. Tips were not included on bar tabs, included in $12 per day tip package, and therefore service personnel had no incentive to provide service.

The hot dog and hamburger grill was busy all the time. I think that's an indication of the quality of the other food services available.

Seems there are more Chiefs than Indians on the wait staff. A lot of people standing around looking at the floor. Seems they didn't want to make eye contact for fear that they might have to do something.

Entertainment at the pool was juvenile. "Musical Chairs" and "YMCA" are better suited for nursery schools or nursing homes. I think the cruise director got his job solely because he could rattle off announcements in five languages.

Cabin was the smallest we have ever been in. Less storage space and people space than we have experienced on any ship before.

If you like the experiences of Princess, Royal Caribbean, Holland, Norwegian, and the like, DON'T sail on MSC Lirica. A travel agent sitting at our table agreed with this review.
