MSC not for us

Review for MSC Lirica to Caribbean - Southern

To start on the positive, the ship was spotlessly clean and the waiting and cabin staff were excellent. Unfortunately there are no more positives. We have cruised a number of times and this was our worst experience. The bad experience started with embarkation. The pickup at the airport was good and we arrived at the ship just after 4pm. This is a cruise who embarks and disembarks at nearly every ...

MSC Lirica- Cruiser's Paradise

We arrived at the cruise terminal in Ft Lauderdale right around 12:30 on embarkation day. There was a small line (about 100-150 people) and breezed through the embarkation process in about 15 minutes. We were taken to our room to put down our carry on bags and directed to the buffet lunch upstairs. There was a variety of foods on the buffet, hotdogs, hamburgers and fries on the American bar, pizza ...

Some shortcomings but not disappointed

My wife and I, both retirees, have taken more than thirty cruises but this was our first cruise with MSC. We decided to take this cruise at short notice and selected the Lirica because of the itinerary and the price. Had I read the reviews before booking the cruise I might have had second thoughts. But it was too late to cancel so we decided to hope for the best but be prepared for the worst. As ...

As I stated we had gone on a two week tour of Italy in 2008 and had a fantastic time. When I learned of MSC being an Italian style cruise I couldn't sign up fast enough.The ship was impeccable. Our cabin was spacious. The crew was very nice most of the time.One of the problems we had with the Lirica was the food. We have been on many cruises and I would have to say the Lirica had by far the worst ...

I am just going to give an overview of my recent 10 day Caribbean sailing on the MSC Lirica. For those who might be interested in more day to day detail, I wrote a live daily review, and you can view it here: http://www.boards.cruisecritic.com/showthread.php?t=941026 First to give credit where it is due, the ship is maintained beautifully, and there was no hint that she is six years old, ...

We just returned from a spring break cruise on the MSC Lirica, sailing the South Eastern Caribbean and South America. I wanted to start out by informing those considering a cruise on this ship not to change their mind by reading these reviews as my wife and I almost did. We had booked this cruise several months in advance and chose this line due the great itinerary and cost. We have cruised ...

After reading the reviews on CC we were a bit concerned. People either loved or hated it. We ended up loving it. Be warned, however, if you are looking for WOW factor, the latest in everything, gourmet dining and prefer steak and potatoes to anything else, you won't like the MSC Lirica. However, come open-minded and think more European-like experience that is different from the standard N.A. ...

Went on the Lirica to 6 different ports. The embarkation was excellent, as it only took a few minutes getting there around 12:00(leaving at 7:00 P.M.). We were escorted to our cabin and this was never done before on any of our cruises (this one totals 5) all different cruise lines. It was so nice not having to find our own way to the cabin. We had a wonderful buffet lunch waiting and the ...

This is not your typical American cruise line

I just returned from a 10 day eastern sailing on MSC Lirica and let me first say that if you are used to Royal Caribbean, Carnival, or NCL you are in for a big shock because this is not your typical American cruise line. I was rather disappointed in many aspects because I felt like if the ship wants to do business in America and market to Americans then they need to change the way they deliver ...

We selected this ship because of its size, and, having lived in Southwest Florida for a number of years, we sought to encounter different cultures and meet people from all over.This ship, with its European ownership and customer base promised that. We had no pre-conceptions or expectations. I have to say that from embarkation to debarkation we were pleased at how these folks really have their act ...
