MSC Lirica Cruise Bookings

The MSC Lirica is known for its traditional and more elegant ambiance. The ship travels to destinations in South America, Eastern and Western Mediterranean. Christened by Sophia Loren, launched in the Spring of 2003 and the first ever new build cruise ship to enter service for MSC Cruise - the Lirica is a sister ship and the same size and shape as the MSC Sinfonia, MSC Opera cruises (which South Africans are familiar with) and the MSC Armonia.
