MSC Lirica Review – Would I Sail Her Again?
My husband recently declared that the test of a good cruise line is if you'd sail them again. He said this as soon as we boarded the MSC Lirica for our very first MSC cruise.
We are avid cruises and have been for many years. We've sailed with pretty much all the major cruise lines that cater to the US market including Princess, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, and NCL. But this was our first cruise aboard an MSC ship which caters mostly to the European market.
