End of med season -- the reason for poor service ?

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on MSC Lirica

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

We choose this cruise to change our ideas of a very sad event; We love cruises and had already sailed on 3 cruises with Costa. We wanted to start from Venice and to discover Dubrovnik and Kotor. Too much remarks and findings to write them all : - 1 port Zakynthos cancelled due to bad weather and replaced by Bari : no problem for us but the excursions of Bari were advanced without ...

Nice but noisy!

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on MSC Lirica

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

The ship was decorated well and largely clean and comfortable. There was little reprieve from the noise of people (there were lots of groups talking loud languages), not as much space as other cruise liners we've been on, the entertainment was loud, there was music in almost every space we went in. We often retreated to our cabin for some peace, our teenager son often in there as the teen club ...

10+ Cruises • Age 30s

My family has taken about 20 plus cruises and MSC did a fairly great job in meeting our expectations. This was our first MSC cruise. I would say the highlight of this cruise was definitely the entertainment! the shows each night were elite! the dancers were exceptional. the pianist Antonio at the L’Atmosphere lounge was extremely talented. We ended up there every night. Edwin the waiter in the ...

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on MSC Lirica

Noname2023
First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

The cruise ship is old and kinda dirty. The shore excursions were disorganized (the tenderboats were in late, you have to wait for the buses in 40°C no shade for sure). The staff at the pool bar didn't want to work, often just looked away, to avoid eyecontact, it was on their face that they HATE their job and hate the guests. The food selection is poor, especially at dinner (only vegetables? ...

First and last time ever

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on MSC Lirica

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

I recently embarked on an MSC Cruise "Lirica" with high hopes for an unforgettable family vacation. Unfortunately, my experience left much to be desired, tarnished by issues ranging from subpar food and outdated facilities to a distressing incident with my special needs son. While some crew members proved to be exceptional, others displayed rude behavior that soured the overall ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We choose this our first cruise after recomendation from freinds, the boarding process was painless and easy and our room cards etc were all in our room on boarding all of the regsitertaion process had been done prior to us boarding and so there was none of the usual stampede for the reception desks. The cabin was ideal with a decent size balcony and we spent the at sea days relaxing on the ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We chose the cruise because it was out of Haifa and was the right length. I knew from the reviews that it wouldn't be at the level of our previous cruises with Celebrity or even Royal Caribbean. But it was disappointing. The food was very basic and the buffet was especially disappointing. The pizza however, available from 12 to midnight was excellent. The service was ok, but regularly we ran ...

Review for a Middle East Cruise on MSC Lirica

Blacktrigeek
2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We chose the cruise as we were celebrating our birthday. The embarkation process went seamlessly; we were shepherded from airport to ship with no problems. There was some waiting for our rooms to become available once on the ship, however, we were roomed before the advertised at 2 pm. Suitcases also arrived in good time. We were kept well-informed re. activities and entertainment onboard ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

There was a suggestion to buy this [articular cruise and I liked the list of cities to visit, so I bought it. In overall, I enjoyed the cruise! There was a pleasant surprise - I got a cabin with a window! Cabin was always clean; it was tidied up twice a day. I read some complains about embarkation and disembarkation. My experience was different. Logistics was very good. We embarked with no ...

Review for a Middle East Cruise on MSC Lirica

ColoradoSkiier5
6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

Like many other reviewers, we choose this cruise based on the itinerary. We were able to get a very good price on the cruise, which is good, because paying full price would not be worth it. The Good- Our state room (a balcony on the 12th floor) was extremely spacious. Most of the cruise staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The embarkation process was the quickest I've ever experienced, ...
