Naples, August 9 - The MSC Lirica is a
275-meter-long cruise ship that weighs about 65,000 tonnes and
has 976 cabins for a total capacity of 2,679 passengers and 721
crew members.
The ship has officially been made the first one of two that
will be used as part of the athletes' village for the 2019
Summer Universiade in Naples through the signing of a contract
on Thursday.
The large ship will be docked at the Stazione Marittima in
July next year to host the athletes.
MSC Lirica has 4 restaurants onboard, 6 cafes, 2 swimming
pools, 2 hydromassage baths, a nightclub and areas for children
and teenagers.
Those wanting to play sports on the ship can choose between
tennis, basketball and volleyball as well as jogging, the gym
and the solarium.
The ship has a wellness center with thalassotherapy, a
Turkish bath, a sauna, massage rooms, a beauty salon and a
hairdresser's.
Entirely renovated and modernized in 2015 through a
200-million-euro investment, the MSC Lirica ship offers
Mediterranean and international cuisine in its restaurants.
In this summer period, the ship offers cruises in the eastern
Mediterranean that leave from Venice and Bari every week to
Greece and Croatia.
In November 2018 the ship will move to the UAE, offering
longer itineraries of between 11 and 14 nights, with two in
Dubai and - for the first time - stops in India.
Later, in April 2019, the ship will return to the Adriatic
for new itineraries towards the eastern Mediterranean.
It will remain there for the entire 2019 summer season except
for the period of the Universiade, during which it will be
moored in Naples.
