MSC Opera

MSC Opera entered service with MSC Cruises in 2004 and is one of four medium-sized Lirica-Class ships specifically built for MSC Cruises (the others are Armonia, Lirica and Sinfona). With a sleek exterior and tastefully decorated modern interior created by the best Italian designers, Opera is a truly beautiful and elegant ship.

MSC Cruises spent over $200 million on refurbishing the Lirica-Class ships during an extensive two-year programme which saw this ship quite literally chopped in half and an 80-foot long section added to the middle. The result is an extra 200 cabins, updated spa and childcare facilities and the addition of a Spray Park on the top deck.

In addition to an incredible itinerary, this cruise ship has a wealth of enriching daily activities, sumptuous suites, elegant dining venues, stylish bars and lounges, fun and exciting entertainment venues and kids’ clubs.

  • Launched: 01 Apr 2004
  • 824 feet
  • 1712 passengers

MSC Opera Reviews

Katie Judge

I was facing a lot of negative comments from friends and other customer before I had went on this cruise. With poor food-only serving Italian food, no English on board etc etc… well this could NOT be anything further from the truth… we boarded the cruise in Southampton and took advantage of the FREE PARKING MSC Cruises offered us, we were checked in in 15mins, greeted with a glass of wine or fruit juice before we boarded the ship. Found our cabin- absolutely no difference from the Princess or Royal Caribbean balcony cabins we had before. Very happy with this, easy to manage our way round the ship. On first impressions the ship was absolutely spotless- staff out cleaning it day & night. Food choices were good- definitely not just Italian food on offer but I must say the Pasta choices were all based on fresh home-made pasta made daily on board. We had fish, steak, chicken, pasta etc etc dishes offered each night and I also was impressed they also offered a plain food choice every night on the menu- like just chicken & chips for either kids or plain eating Adults, so again there is a full choice on board. The atmosphere on board was good . the entertainment was varied each night, from salsa dancing to disco ( one thing I really liked was the Bar Lounge at the back of the ship was huge and most people met here after dinner , they had live music, disco, area for the kids etc , so a very nice family fee l and open to everyone ( up to a certain time for kids ) and we ended up here each night as the atmosphere was great.

We travelled on the MSC Opera last month and found all the staff we very friendly and efficient.

The ship was a perfect size not to small, not too large.

The food was very tasty and well presented although the portions were not huge.

The cabins were surprisingly spacious very functional and immaculately clean.

I would not hesitate to go back on this ship.

MSC Opera – great value for money, we liked the size of the ship, it meant that the whole family had something to do. The Ice Cream Parlour was a favourite with our youngest and we liked the themed evenings at “Il Patio”.

I have recently done a 7 night Norwegian Fjord cruise with my husband and 5 year old son. I had a fantastic time, our car parking was complimentary so when we got down to Southampton they took care of everything right from the start of our trip. On board we booked a balcony suite which was cabin number 12003 right at the front of the ship. It was in a fantastic location as it looked out directly at the front of the ship which was amazing!! We loved it and the views were amazing. In the evening we thoroughly enjoyed the evening entertainment they had to offer, they would put on circus acts and Broadway style theatre shows which were brilliant and my young son loved them. In terms of things to do in the day time for my son there were lots of kids activities for him so he was always entertained. The food was delicious and the chef’s were very accommodating as they knew I was a vegan so went out the way to accommodate where possible.

Great Ship, Although an Italian Line we were cruising from Southampton and nearly everyone on board was British.

We took the Kids on this cruise as they travelled Free! That makes a huge difference when budgeting and they had a great time. The Ship is comfortably decorated and has plenty of deck space.

The children particularly liked the Ice Cream bar and the Children’s Area onboard. We also had a Couple of Family games of Mini Golf which my son really enjoyed.

There was about 8 bars on board that were all themed differently so we were able to vary our evenings to Suit our mood. The Food was good too, They catered for the Kids picky tastes and nothing was too much trouble for the staff and crew. They seemed to be on a mission to make our holiday as fantastic as it could be and they certainly achieved that.

We will certainly be travelling with MSC cruises again and would recommend it to anyone with Children who fancies a cruise but has a limited budget.

This was our first MSC Cruise and what a pleasant surprise it was , id heard so many indifferent reports on MSC and didn’t know what to expect.

The ship was spotlessly clean , more so than any other ship i have been on. The crew were incredible polite and helpful.

I would give the food an 8/10 with plenty of choice and quite British in taste as the ship was out of Southampton.

Our cabin had been upgraded to a balcony and was very spacious.

This was our first ever cruise and will be the first of many we loved it.

The staff were fantastic so helpful and friendly always said hello and smiled whenever you meet them. The food was excellent so much choice to suit everyone from breakfasts to midnight feast of freshly made pizza and sandwiches.They worked really hard to keep the ship clean tidy and running smoothly.The evening shows were really good a great ending to a good day. Maybe need a bit more to do during the day if at sea and you don't wanna be round the pool,but apart from that it was a great holiday and I would recommend msc to anyone.
