La Caravella Restaurant


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


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


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


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.
