Brilliant first cruise experience

We did not know what to expect with it being our first cruise, we thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely go on another

MSC Lirica Eastern Med 18-25 October

Oct 26th, 2019

I loved every minute! I thought the destinations were fantastic. The staff onboard were all amazing and I loved the food. Only problem I found was the rudeness of some other passengers can be very annoying when you are used to everyone being well mannered.

Our first cruise experience

Oct 17th, 2019

This was our first cruise and although we were impressed with the cabin, staff, food and destinations, we were very disappointed with the shortened time changes in some of the ports. This meant we didn’t fully experience everything we had hoped to in Crete and Kefalonia. We would otherwise recommend MSC but have decided that cruising isn’t really our type of holiday. We may however try one again in the future.

Good but could have been better

Sep 23rd, 2019

In general the cruise was good apart from the noise in the cabin issue. Although only our third cruise with MSC, we had Gold Cards due to their loyalty match scheme which gave us a few little perks

MSC Lirica 7 Night Med Cruise

Sep 22nd, 2019

We did enjoy our holiday on Lirica, but totally spoilt by the lack of sleep. Unfortunately nobody seemed to take the complaint seriously. I travelled with mum, who was 75 and to have barely any sleep all week, just ruined our trip.

This was my second trip with MSC and had the 3rd immediately after with Sinfonia. Food was excellent, Lirica is a beautiful ship and staff wonderful BUT wifi too expensive and not reliable. Showers too small

Great time! We will make a new cruise, for sure. Everything was great and the staff very helpful and kind. We only had a little problem with a waiter, just because of our nationality. Well, one person doesn't represent all other awesome persons of the staff.

Venice cruise round trip to Athens

May 8th, 2019

Overall the food was fair, but not great. The 11th floor aft buffet space is too bunched up and crowded for guests movement around the buffet and between the tables. There is barely enough room for two way walking traffic at the service lines. Moving the rails 1/2 meter out from the service bar would help. Move the larger tables out of the aft window viewing areas and put smaller tables for two guests in their place. There are many windows that could be easily washed from the deck that are very dirty all around the ship. Having picture windows on a ship that are unnecessarily dirty is very poor staff management.
