MSC Lirica - Ship Description

Wherever it sails, Lirica allows its 1,590 passengers to steep in Mediterranean traditions, with an onboard emphasis on Italian design, cuisine, and hospitality. From the moment you enter the ship's elegant reception area, the gracious staff will escort you to your stateroom in an atmosphere comparable to a fine, floating Italian hotel with high-quality amenities and engaging activities.

Daytime diversions take a number of forms on Lirica, and passengers are encouraged to take advantage of the sunshine at the ship's two outdoor swimming and whirlpools. Soothe all cares away at the Turkish bath, or step into the spa for some pampering treatments. There's an outdoor jogging track, plus a mini-golf course and volleyball court. Guest lecturers illuminate topics ranging from art and literature to food and wine. The ship also features an internet cafe, virtual reality center, and a children's club.

Traditional Italian dining means that each night, passengers get to savor a stunning seven-course meal filled with regional flavors, authentic recipes, and unique wine selections. The ship operates two onboard restaurants, plus a pizzeria and grill. Many of the nightly shows have an accent of the Mediterranean, from Spanish flamenco dancers to live music. Excitement holds sway in the ship's casino, and seven bars and lounges ensure that a good drink and conversation are never far away.
