The Stunning Main Port of

MSC Splendida Overview

For a quintessentially European holiday experience, you can't do better than a trip aboard the MSC Splendida cruise ship. The Splendida is big, beautiful and brimming with a multicultural mix of passengers from a host of different nations, typical of MSC cruises.

Specs: MSC Splendida at a glance
The MSC Splendida carries a maximum of 4,363 passengers, weighs 137,936 tonnes and has a top speed of just under 23 knots.

Accommodation: MSC Splendida rooms and suites
Whether you opt for one of the cozy MSC Splendida inside cabins or decide to live the high life with an MSC Splendida suite, you'll find the rooms tastefully designed to make you feel right at home. 80% of the cabins have private balconies and the suites are suitably luxurious. MSC Splendida room sizes range from 172 square feet to an expansive 571 square feet.

Entertainment: things to do on board the MSC Splendida
While you'll be discovering new destinations almost every day on an MSC Splendida cruise, onboard activities will keep you well entertained when you're at sea.

Here are just a few MSC Splendida entertainment highlights:
  • Catch a variety of live shows at the Strand Theatre
  • Strap yourself in to experience the immersive 4D Cinema
  • Get into the international spirit with mambo or salsa dance lessons

Food: MSC Splendida restaurants
Cruise holidays are all about indulgence and dining is no exception - MSC Splendida food reflects its Mediterranean heritage, with excellent pastas, risottos, cheeses, soups and breads.

MSC Splendida dining options included in your fare:
  • La Reggia and Villa Verde main dining rooms: choose from up to six courses, with regional Italian specialities changing night by night
  • Bora Bora: buffet style breakfast and lunch, turning into a pizzeria and kebab restaurant at night
  • Pago Pago: buffet style breakfast and lunch, closed in the evenings

A handful of MSC Splendida specialty dining options not included in your fare (usually charged a la carte):
  • L'Olivio: delicious Italian fine dining
  • L'Enoteca: wine and tapas bar - perfect for a classy snack
  • The Sports Bar: stop in for chicken wings and a beer

Destinations: MSC Splendida itineraries
The MSC Splendida divides its time between Europe and South America, with both Mediterranean and Northern Europe itineraries on offer in the Old World and a cruise along the beautiful coast of Brazil available in the New World.

Things to remember: On board the MSC Splendida
Just a handful of things to remember when getting ready to cruise aboard the MSC Splendida:
  • When it comes to eveningwear, there are three different categories: formal, informal and casual. Casual means jeans and a sports shirt for guys and women are fine with skirts, slacks, blouses or sweaters. Informal is a step up, with cocktail dresses de rigeur for the ladies and a jacket and tie for men. On formal nights it's time to break out the tux or evening dress. You'll be informed ahead of time what standard of dress your evening will require.
  • MSC is a popular cruise line with families, offering children's programs divided into a range of age groups between 3 and 18. Kids even have their own supervised pool, while teenagers enjoy their very own waterslide, the Toboga, on Deck 15.
  • While all staff members can speak English, the MSC Splendida is certainly a ship with a strong international flavour. That means that many of your fellow passengers may not speak your language, and announcements are made in a handful of different languages. This certainly isn't a negative thing though and merely adds to the unique MSC flavour of this ship.
  • A gratuity of 7 Euros per day will be automatically added each day which can be paid via your onboard account. The official currency of the MSC Splendida is the Euro.

I have enjoyed visiting as much of the world as possible over the years. Europe and the Mediterranean are personal favourites, but there is so much to see very close to our little Australasian corner of the globe- one of my top travel experiences was snorkeling with tropical fish and turtles in New Caledonia! Cruising is a fantastic way to see it all, and we hope to make booking a cruise easier for both first-timers and old salts. From ship tips to destination news and views, we will keep you up-to-date. Happy cruising!
