    MSC Lirica
    MSC Cruises' MSC Lirica

    MSC Lirica (MSC Cruises)


    MSC Lirica was MSC’s first newbuild ship. She was launched in 2002 and sailed on her maiden voyage in March 2003. MSC Lirica is identical to her sister ship MSC Opera built in 2004.


    During a 2 year refurbishment in 2014-2015, MSC Lirica was cut and stretched to fit an extra 80-foot mid-section. This operation saw Lirica gain nearly 200 new cabins.
