The itinerary to be offered by Lirica will feature embarkation in the romantic Venice or beautiful Bari, calling at some of the most exciting destinations in the Eastern Mediterranean.

The cruise line is giving passengers even more time to explore due to a longer stay in Corfu as well as a full day ashore in Mykonos.

MSC Lirica offers the 7-night Eastern Mediterranean itinerary through October 26, 2018.

As it was announced in September 2016, as of May 2018 MSC Cruises' Splendida ship will homeport in Shanghai. From there, the vessel will serve the Chinese home market with an itinerary including interesting destinations in China, Korea and Japan.
