The distinctive style of MSC Cruises is admired worldwide, as unmistakable as Italian music. With its blend of elegant décor and ambiance, MSC Lirica reflects the strong tradition of hospitality and the true heritage of the company.

MSC Lirica: an expression of Italian elegance

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 spaciousnesspervades, 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. TheBroadway Theatre is an ultramodern reinterpretation of traditional lines.

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 319 m2 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 savour every moment aboard, it will come as no surprise to hear travellers grow lyrical that cruise ship is the heart of their voyage, no less than the incredible destinations she takes them to discover.
