MSC Lirica Overview

The MSC Lirica cruise ship embodies the perfect mix of casual ambiance and classic elegance. You won't find the gaudy excesses of the mega cruise ships here, but the atmosphere is still relaxed enough for you to kick back and let your worries wash away without concerning yourself overmuch about things like dress codes.

Specs: MSC Lirica at a glance
The MSC Lirica has a gross tonnage of 59,058, comes to 824 feet in length and can accommodate 1,560 passengers. She has a top speed of 21.7 knots.

Accommodation: MSC Lirica rooms and suites
MSC Lirica rooms range from inside cabins to balcony suites. They're not the largest cruise quarters you'll come across, but they are well appointed with plenty of storage so you need never feel cramped.

Entertainment: things to do on board the MSC Lirica
You won't be at a loss for things to do during your time aboard the MSC Lirica - get a glimpse of some of the MSC Lirica entertainment available below:

Destinations: MSC Lirica itineraries
An MSC Lirica itinerary will often touch on both the Mediterranean and the west coast of South America, with transatlantic crossings something of a specialty for this ship.

Things to remember: On board the MSC Lirica
A few things to remember when you're preparing for a voyage aboard the MSC Lirica:
  • As is usual on most cruise ships, there tends to be a couple formal nights but if you don't want to break out the tux or gown, it's not that big a deal. Dress code isn't quite as strict here as on some lines that cater to an older crowd.
  • MSC is a very family friendly line - many of their Mediterranean cruises even feature 'kids cruise free' specials. You can find a children's facility on deck 11 which caters to ages 3 - 17.
  • One thing to remember about MSC cruises in general is that the passengers are a very international and multilingual bunch. That means that announcements will be in several different languages, including English, and although all staff will be fluent in English, many of your fellow cruisers won't be. This isn't a downside though, just something you need to adjust to - it really adds a unique flavour to their voyages.
  • Plan for gratuities around $10 per day - this can be paid at the end of the cruise. The official onboard currency for Mediterranean and transatlantic cruises is the Euro, while on Caribbean cruises it's the US dollar.

I have enjoyed visiting as much of the world as possible over the years. Europe and the Mediterranean are personal favourites, but there is so much to see very close to our little Australasian corner of the globe- one of my top travel experiences was snorkeling with tropical fish and turtles in New Caledonia! Cruising is a fantastic way to see it all, and we hope to make booking a cruise easier for both first-timers and old salts. From ship tips to destination news and views, we will keep you up-to-date. Happy cruising!
