Hi, the information is wonderful. I thought I'd visit the site to obtain more info, but you have to sign in and have to be a travel agent to set up an account. Is there any other way?? Thanks.

I found all this info by checking what pages are indexed by google. Yes, you need an agent account to see all pages. But it appears they do not have any security on the non html documents.
To see what pages are indexed from this site, start your browser and go to the website www.google.com and then in the search area enter:
site:www.msccruisesagent.com
To find all pdf documents (I did that search to find menus) enter:
site:www.msccruisesagent.com pdf
Sorry about "geeky" reply, but that is they way I found that info.

These are the menus exactly what we had on the 10 days Lirica Jan.3-13. Of course there are alot more for the 10 days sailing and everyday dinner menu is different. They served lobster in the farewell / gala night. Yummy....

The menu's have the food sounding delicious.

I know food is subjective, but how's the dining? We're thinking of the Poesia in April.

We've cruised Celebrity, NCL and Princess in the past.

Thanks soooo much for the info, what a great help! I thought the menus and drink prices were so bad. Makes me more anxious to sail on her April 18th! Can't wait, thanks again. Li

Did I misread those menus are there really only 4 main course choices for regular dinner. Seems like our picky eaters will be sticking to the buffet or lossing alot of weight depending on the buffet options.

That is the menu we had as well. If you didn't like anything on the regular menu our party would get a steak or baked potatoe. I also would order two of something that I did like.

also the eggplant parmigiana; the lassagna emilio romano and any flavour of the gelato! The chilled soups are a must try too (only on at lunch in MDR usually). I'm also fairly partial to the tomato stuffed with tuna and the tiramisu!
