La Caravella Restaurant

Dining

The dining options are definitely one of the many highlights of the MSC Lirica. There are two main restaurants - La Bussola and L’Ippocampo. There’s also a charming outdoor restaurant, La Pergola, which includes a grill and pizzeria for a quick bite. Complemented by exceptional service, you’ll find your dining experience is second to none.

A more casual spot is Le Bistrot Cafeteria, serving a variety of quality Italian and international cuisine. The best place to go for fine coffees and fresh-out-of-the-oven pastries is the Coffee Corner. You’ve also got a choice of a further five bars on-board, including the Lord Nelson Pub, L’Atmosphere Piano Bar and the Beverley Hills Bar. Room service is available at all times of day, but has some small charges depending on what you order.

Balcony Cabin

Accommodation

There are a variety of staterooms and suites available on-board MSC Lirica ranging from interior cabins to those with windows, balconies and Aurea Suites which are the most spacious. Family cabins are available which sleep up to four people. Each stateroom features air-conditioning, a TV, telephone, mini-bar and a safe.

Doremi Spray Park

Activities

Enjoy a leisurely swim - or simply cool off - in one of the two outdoor swimming pools and whirlpools. Kids will love the Doremi Spray Park. Like a game of golf? Then be sure to have a go on the terrific mini golf course. To work up a sweat, go for a jog on the jogging track or work out at the modern gymnasium. With magnificent ocean views, you’ll find an array of high tech equipment here.

If you’re a self-confessed shopaholic, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to shop in the on-board shopping arcade – Rodeo Drive – the ship’s very own shopping centre. It even includes bars, lounges and entertainment areas. Internet access is available in the Internet Centre and, furthermore, you can even go along to a cookery demonstration or a dance class. There are plenty of fun quizzes and game shows too.

Pure relaxation awaits you at the MSC Aurea Spa offering stunning views, relaxing massages, revitalising facials and more. There’s also a Thermal Suite, which contains various kinds of steam rooms with herbal aromatherapy infusions. There’s a beauty salon too, so why not treat yourself to a manicure or pedicure? Elsewhere, the cosy library is the ideal place to kick back with a book.

Pearl Casino

Entertainment

The Broadway Theatre is the MSC Lirica´s entertainment hotspot, with exciting shows and evening events. Alternatively, you can dance the night away in the lively disco known as The Blue Club for late nights and music. You’ll also discover plenty of quiet spots too, perfect for relaxing or enjoying a night-cap in. Feeling lucky? Then visit the Las Vegas Casino, where you’ll find blackjack, poker and roulette games as well as an array of slot machines too. If you like card games, then you should definitely check out the on-board Card Room.

Little cruisers will have bags of fun, thanks to the qualified entertainment staff. Available all day, every day, they’ll entertain children and teens aged 3 – 17. And, it’s all complimentary, of course. There’s also an area dedicated to babies and an arcade with Namco games.

MSC Lirica Reviews

Geoff Baldwin

star rating

My first impression of the MSC Lirica was that the staff were tentative and always helpful. I found the ship to be modern and very sophisticated, the décor and style of the ship can only be describe as that of a classy look. The cabin sizes were very generous and very homely feeling with warm and very intimate colours around the cabin.

When viewing the different restaurants and looking at what food was on offer I thought there was plentiful to choose from that catered to all different tastes, we also got the opportunity to try some of the food and were given a three course meal which was to die for. For my starter I had pulse soup which was creamy with crab inside which was to die for and for my main I had peppercorn chicken which was delicious and then finally for desert I had melt in the middle chocolate sponge. I absolutely loved the food on board the ship and I thought that the staff were very efficient when it came to the service that I received from them having my meal.

After lunch we were also lucky enough to have a guided tour around the theatre which was stunning it was huge with a traditional theatre surrounding to it with enough seats and a huge stage where they offer fantastic performances within the evening times. Overall I think that the MSC Lirica was a beautiful ship and the staff deserve every credit because they made every effort to make sure every visitor had a good time. They were friendly, helpful and had a brilliant relationship with the customers it really was a pleasure on-board the MSC Lirica.

Having been on MSC Opera last year- I had something to compare the Lirica to and it was even better this time. 2 years younger than the Opera – you have more modern cabins & décor on board and just a newer feel to it.

Lots of marble floors, lots of seated coffee areas which was quite nice , nice big lounge for shows.

Very clean , everywhere on board. Balcony cabins are really lovely and I would recommend always trying to upgrade to these cabins, as they are as good as RCCL, P+O etc and some were a better shape too.

2 sittings for dinner, still first and second dining, Good selection of Duty Free shops on board this ship. Childrens club on board. Food was nice enough- good selection to cater for all types- including a plain selection every night for people that cant see anything they like off the main menu ( so this helps with UK guests or kids). All pasta is made fresh every day on board and we had a food demonstration from the head chef and it was lovely. They make fresh Italian pizzas each day too and are served up on the pool deck with burgers, salads, hot dogs etc- so the food is suitable for everyone.

Ship was overall very good and worth MSC prices!!

I have recently returned from cruising on the MSC Lirica, I had an amazing time. The food was delicious and the cabin was lovely and big and always cleaned. The staff were always really helpful and the children’s entertainment was fantastic I couldn’t keep my children out of them, infact I hardly saw them it was bliss. What we loved the most was the fact MSC staff cared so much about giving us the best customer service and nothing was ever too much for them. I will definitely travel with MSC cruises again.

Having never sailed with a Cruise company that was not American or British I was hesitant as to what I would experience onboard. I booked it as the itinerary was very good and also price was very good as well. I was surprised at how the trip turned out. It was enjoyable, food was good and the service. We had a great table right in the window at the back of the ship so we could see as we were sailing.

Entertainment was good, the only thing you have to bear with is that all announcements are spoke in many different languages so take a while but otherwise they kept us entertained. The shows were good and the ship had plenty to do.

The accommodation was nice, as were the people on-board so would I sail with MSC again, yes I would as value for money they were very good.

I have recently returned from cruising on the MSC Lirica, I had an amazing time. The food was delicious and the cabin was lovely and big and always cleaned. The staff were always really helpful and the children’s entertainment was fantastic I couldn’t keep my children out of them, infact I hardly saw them it was bliss. What we loved the most was the fact MSC staff cared so much about giving us the best customer service and nothing was ever too much for them. I will definitely travel with MSC cruises again.

Having never sailed with a Cruise company that was not American or British I was hesitant as to what I would experience onboard. I booked it as the itinerary was very good and also price was very good as well. I was surprised at how the trip turned out. It was enjoyable, food was good and the service. We had a great table right in the window at the back of the ship so we could see as we were sailing.

Entertainment was good, the only thing you have to bear with is that all announcements are spoke in many different languages so take a while but otherwise they kept us entertained. The shows were good and the ship had plenty to do.

The accommodation was nice, as were the people on-board so would I sail with MSC again, yes I would as value for money they were very good.
