A refreshingly refined world of difference

MSC Lirica brings you a distinctive cruise experience along classic lines, centred on elegance, comfort and hospitality in the finest traditions of MSC Cruises' Mediterranean way of life.

An atmosphere of relaxed spaciousness pervades, with magnificent internal vistas from the foyer and unimpeded ocean views from the lounges' floor-to-ceiling picture windows.

But you'll also find an abundance of intimate spaces, like the swish Beverly Hills Bar or traditional English-style Lord Nelson Pub, the perfect haven for a pre-theatre drink.

Modernity and tradition mingle on this ecological ship. The Broadway Theater is an ultramodern reinterpretation of traditional lines.

Please note that access to the theatre for the evening shows is by booking only (not needed for the other ships). There are three quick and easy ways to book: connect to the free onboard wi-fi network with your smartphone or tablet, use the touch screens on different decks of the ship, or ask at the Reception.

We've added spacious new cabins with balconies to delight our guests with superb panoramic views. We've enlarged the restaurant and buffet areas to serve up an even greater variety of culinary treats.

We've included a new 3,434 sq ft area to fill with music and dancing. With the help of prestigious partners like Chicco,LEGO, and Namco, we've created fabulous new play areas for children of all ages, starting with an exciting Spray Park packed with fun water features. And to offer even more routes to relaxation, we've enhanced the lavish MSC Aurea Spa with more space for massages.

Experiencing something new to savor every moment aboard, it will come as no surprise to hear travelers grow lyrical that MSC Lirica cruise ship is the heart of their voyage, no less than the incredible destinations she takes them to discover.
