This summer MSC Cruises will deploy MSC Lirica to the Eastern Mediterranean market. The ship will homeport in Piraeus, the port for the Greek capital Athens, during the entire season.
This summer Greece will be a major player in MSC Cruises‘ Eastern Mediterranean cruise programme. Guests will have the opportunity to embark at Piraeus for the first time and three other ships will also sail to different parts of the country’s beautiful destinations.
From April to October MSC Lirica will offer a newly-designed 7-night itinerary with 28 sailings from Piraeus calling Kusadasi, Turkey; Haifa, Israel; Limassol, Cyprus and the Greek islands of Rhodes and Santorini before returning to Piraeus.
The ship’s guests can also begin their 7-night cruises with embarkation at Kusadasi (Turkey), Haifa (Israel) and Limassol (Cyprus), as well as Piraeus.
The Greek island of Crete will also be a port of call in MSC Lirica’s four 11-night sailings in the Eastern Mediterranean during November and December 2022 with visits to Heraklion.
Greece will also feature in three other ship’s East Mediterranean itineraries.
MSC Armonia, will call Piraeus on a weekly basis during the summer months and MSC Fantasia from September 2022 will similarly perform 11-night cruises to the Greek port for guests to visit Athens. The summer sailings for MSC Musica include calls at Katakolon for Olympia, Heraklion and Santorini.
MSC Lirica offers a distinctive cruise experience centred on elegance, comfort and hospitality with only 992 guest cabins. Onboard an atmosphere of relaxed spaciousness pervades, with magnificent internal vistas from the foyer and unimpeded ocean views from the lounges’ floor-to-ceiling picture windows.
Lirica offers a choice of lounges and bars including the glamourous Beverly Hills Bar or traditional English-style Lord Nelson Pub, the perfect venue for a pre-theatre drink.
Families will enjoy the children’s play area created in collaboration with Lego and Chicco as well as a spray park and two swimming pools plus a full programme of activities for kids of all ages.
The MSC Aurea Spa offers a haven for those wishing to unwind and, in the evening, the Broadway Theatre offers entertainment each night. And with two main restaurants, a buffet and the popular Kaito Sushi Bar, guests have a choice of formal or more casual dining options.
Voyages on board MSC Lirica will be, as they are for all of the Company’s ships, only open to guests who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
