Disappointment!: MSC Lirica Cruise Review by Bigbird101
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Baltic Sea
We then faced the chaotic boarding process! Cars everywhere and no one to tell them where to go!
On being shown to our room we then found out that we were alocated 2nd sitting for diner after requesting 1st sitting on booking the cruise 8 months previously.
The food was a major disappointment - it was bland and barely luke-warm on reaching the table!!!
We had wrongly believed that being an Italian cruise line that the food would be something special.
One one evening we didn't even get coffee as our 2 waiters just seemed to disappear!
We had done some internet research on the excursions available to us and had picked the ones we wanted to do and had priced them, thus setting More ourselves a budget!!! When actually booking the trips we found out that they had risen quite considerably in price in just 1 week!!! With a couple of them already being sold out!
The ship itself is beautiful and spotlessly clean.
Our cabin steward was wonderful and nothing was too much trouble for him.
Unfortunatly all these little things just added up and took the edge off what we had hoped would be a wonderful holiday. Less
Ample room but hidden safe!!! Shower a little on the small side.
Stretched Lirica Genoa to Rio
Sunshine and Fun
A lot to praise....but disappo...
