In early 2016, MSC Cruises will send MSC Lirica to Shanghai, China according to sources familiar with the new deployment. 

The cruise ship will be stretched at Fincantieri this fall, ahead of deployment in South America during 2015-2106 winter.

Following that, MSC Cruises planned a repositioning cruise to Shanghai in March 2016, and it's believed that Lirica will stay in China for next year's summer.

MSC made it no secret they have been exploring the Chinese market. The line commented that some of their new seven ships being currently built may be designated for the cruise market in China.
