Wonderful Christmas memories thanks to MSC

Review for MSC Lirica to Caribbean - Western

This was our first time cruising with MSC. We've previously cruised with Princess and Royal Caribbean, and had such a great time that when we found this Caribbean cruise with MSC for such a great price, we couldn't pass it up. We had decided earlier in the year that instead of gifts for Christmas, we would take our teenager daughter and son on an unforgettable Christmas cruise instead. We all had ...

MSC Lirica New Years Eve Cruise

New Years Eve Cruise. We went with our kids (13 and 8) and my parents (60's) This was by far the worst vacation we've ever taken. The 10 night Spring Break cruise we had booked on the Lirica was cancelled as soon as we possibly could. Instead we booked the Carnival Triumph for less days , fewer ports and more money. We feel this is a better choice to spend our precious vacation time. ...

If I took this cruise in Rome, I would understand the low quality of service. After all it would be in Italy by italians. But I boarded on Ft Lauderdale, USA. You know you are in trouble if the front desk and reservations people don't understand what you are saying. It is standard on all other cruises to have non-english speaking people on the restaurants or the cabin service, but to have ...

Our Family sailed the Western Caribbean aboard Lirica. We had a balcony cabin (suite) and an ocean view room for our teenagers. While MSC wouldn't allow booking the kids in a room without us, or have them in our room, (TA had to split us and kids so an adult was in each room) once onboard, there was no problem. The rooms and ship were well maintained. Food: The dining was good, but ...

This was my first cruise with MSC and it was my eighth cruise. Previously, I've cruised once with Carnival, once with RCL, twice with Holland America and three times with NCL. We flew down to Fort Lauderdale on US Airways from Columbus, Ohio. We had a short 40 minute layover in Charlotte. Even with the short layover, our luggage arrived in Fort Lauderdale with our flight. We did arrive late at ...

Is this the cleanest ship sailing the seas today?

We were a bit concerned after reading the varying reports about MSC but were generally pleasantly surprised. The ship was very clean and new looking with lots of glass and shine. The cabin was a basic windowless job but was big enough to spend time in and did not feel claustrophobic. There was loads of storage too. Food was good at buffet, lots of healthy options. At dinner it was variable but ...

This cruise is a great value if you are a family looking for a US Winter Break cruise with the children. We obtained a kids sail free rate and AT THAT PRICE, we were not disappointed and AT THAT PRICE we would book it again. We would NOT cruise this line again, otherwise, however, because at $899 + p.p. adult, you can do far better on Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, etc... In summary: The ship was ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

I booked this cruise in an effort to find a replacement cruise line for Princess. After 25 cruises with Princess,I do not think I will cruise with them again. Embarkation was a snap for us, because we got to the pier early per our advice to all of our clients, between 10:30 and 11:00. We were on the ship by 12:15. However, because of a computer problem we had to delay sailing by two hours so ...

My sister and I took MSC for the first time 12/14/2007 for 7 day to Western Caribbean. Both have cruised multiple times and with other carriers. Embarkation was unlike any other cruise. Arrived to Ft. Lauderdale port, hundreds of people, no one giving instructions as to the procedures and the process to get on ship took approximately 2.5 hours. Time would have passed better if some instructions or ...

There were ten of us that boarded the MSC Lirica,this was our third cruise but two couples were experiencing their first. Embarkation was a breeze thanks to our flight being delayed and arriving late at the dock, the staff was very accommodating and showed us to our cabins very quickly. We had all chosen cabins with verandas, which on MSC are mini-suites. The cabins were very nice with a lot of ...
