    Cruise itinerary

    Day Port Due Depart
    1 Flight departs
    1 Venice
    Venice
    Swap shipboard life for a gondola for an unforgettable tour of one of the most romantic cities in Europe.
    PM
    2 Bari
    Bari
    Corso Vittorio Emanuele divides Bari, a prominent seaport, into two different eras: the alleys and courtyards of Old Town and the thriving, modern city. Walk the Imperatore Augusto Promenade to the Basilica of St. Nicholas and browse the elegant shops of the Via Sparano for a taste of both worlds.
    PM PM
    3 At Sea
    4 Thira, Santorini
    Thira, Santorini
    Santorini is the very essence of Greek charm. Sugar-cube houses cling to the cliffs. Vivid blue church domes add a splash of colour. And steep cliff-sides tumble into an impossibly clear sea. Just beautiful. Sample the wine or the cliff top views, the terraced bars and restaurants or the ancient Roman ruins on Santorini.
    AM PM
    5 Chania, Crete
    Chania, Crete
    The old town of Chania is really worth a visit, as it is beautifully kept. I have a few favourite places we always visit when we are there. One of them is a cooperative for Cretan artist, where they have thousands of paintings at more than resonable prices (the price is usually €100, or can be "negotiated" to that price). It is situated in a small basement of a stone house in a back alley in the old town. There are also a couple of really nice restaurants, in buldings dating back to the 17th century with a ton of history. One of them (Tamarind) is in a old Turkish Bath house, and really worth a visit.
    AM PM
    6 Argostoli, Kefalonia AM PM
    7 Split
    Split
    The second biggest town in Croatia is the first choice for a superb day exploring the open air markets.

    Don’t book this ship if you like your food. Food was inedible in both buffet & restaurant. All meats were over cooked and burned. Couldn’t cut it or chewed it and spat it out. Hardly any vegetables served. Pepperoni pizza was cut in ten slices with three pieces of pepperoni between the ten slices. Every guest you spoke with was complaining of the standard of food. Tables of eight guest were walking out when they saw the menu which had two fish starters, two mains and one dessert. We were at a table of eight who every night could only eat the soup and that was because we were starving. They do not have sommeliers or bar waiters in restaurant. My husband asked for a vodka and was told no we don’t have any time to go to the bar. He had to go himself. The waiter served you wine but just what was at hand. First time I’ve had red wine served from an ice bucket. Very cold. We when we could got off the ship and ate in the port we were visiting. Cleanliness of ship was not up to standard. Food over floors in buffet with waiters walking round dropped food. Tables wiped with food being swiped onto floor. Hand sanitizers empty. Toilets were filthy with paper on floor and fesues all over bowl. Several of us made an appointment to speak to food & beverage manager in his office. The word got around and there was twenty people at the meeting. We could have filled the theatre. He listened and said very little. No change. Must say though the staff were amazing. Never again.

    We didn't find the ship to our liking. It felt crowded. The amount of passengers seemed to exceed the relaxation areas provided. There is no cinema and the shows weren't very good. It was the same singers, dancers each night performing in different shows. The food wasn't very good either. It was quite bland with not much choice. There is a "sky bar" on the top deck which wasn't utilised. The bar opened at ll p.m. for a disco!! Didn't really suit the age range on the ship. The staff were pleasant and helpful. I don't think the organisation of the ship was their fault.

    Just returned from Mediterranean cruise on MSC Lirica. Despite some occasional rough weather the destinations were very good, sometimes not long enough in some destinations but it have us a "taster" of areas we had not visited before was lovely, clean, outside cabin on deck 9 was very comfortable, it was at the rear of the ship so was very quiet. Thank you to Putut for keeping it clean throughout our stay. Food was ok, good variety, waiters worked very hard. We chose to eat in our designated restaurant to avoid hassle of finding a table in the buffet restaurant. Breakfast in the buffet restaurant was at times very busy & sometimes had trouble finding a table. Evening shows were very good, the staff work very hard and shows were very enjoyable. We did have a few grievances while we were on board: the first was with the drink packages. We are not drinkers so pre ordered a coffee package which included latte, cappuccino, etc. Wish we had not bothered! Tea & coffee was available during breakfast and also freely available on deck 11 at other times. We were not informed of this. Also on other cruises that we have been on water was not charged for if you had it with your meals. Not MSC! Water package was "recommended" as soon as you board, what we were not told was that water was freely available in the buffet restaurant. Why should water be freely available in one but not in the others? Our other grievance was that my amazon kindle went missing on deck 12 the day after we arrived. The reception staff could not do anything and although we asked on a daily basis, it was not found. We were very upset by this, apparently there are no cctv cameras on deck 12. Overall it was an enjoyable cruise.
