We have been on msc lirica three times twice in the caribbean and once in the baltic.the cleanliness and state of the ship is outstanding.the passengers depend on which port you start the cruise.in the caribbean it was mostly americans and canadians, whereas the baltic was germans mainly and in fact on that cruise the british were about sixth place for passengers.we also cruised on its sister ship msc opera in the meditterean and on that cruise the majority were italians as it sailed from that country.iwe have not been on p&o but msc is certainly better than thomsons.
