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.
