MSC Lirica Review



Cabins: There are nearly a dozen stateroom price categories that fall into three basic configurations: suite with balcony, ocean view, and inside. The addition of a fourth category on MSC Opera (ocean-view cabin with balcony instead of some of the larger suites) increased the number of balconies available, but the size of these new balcony cabins is identical to that of the ocean-view cabins with windows only. Inside cabins were added to nearly an entire deck on MSC Opera as well, which accounts for the higher double-occupancy rate.

Suites: Suites (which would be more accurately described as minisuites) have a sitting area and a bathroom with bathtub; all but two forward-facing suites on each ship (which are now designated family-size staterooms) have a balcony as well.

Amenities: All cabins are comfortably decorated in primary colors and have a vanity-desk, side chair, TV, small minibar refrigerator, personal safe, and a hair dryer. Bathrooms are supplied with MSC Cruises' own brand of shampoo, bath gel, and soaps, plus a handy sewing repair kit. Suites also have a computer connection.

Accessibility: Four interior cabins on MSC Lirica, Sinfonia, andArmonia and five on MSC Opera are wheelchair accessible and measure 226 square feet.
