The MSC Splendida was commissioned in 2009 as the sister ship of the MSC Fantasia and is one of the larger ships of MSC cruises. At 333.30 meters in length, it offers space for 3,247 passengers (with double occupancy). It is one of six vessels in the fleet with an exclusive MSC Yacht Club area. Design and furnishings, designed by the Italian De Jorio Design Studio, are elegant. Nevertheless, the MSC Splendida differs from her similarly designed sister ship. Among the highlights of the ship are the precious Swarovski staircase in the foyer, the Aqua Park with indoor and outdoor pool and over 150 fountains and the popular children’s paradise..
The cabins of the MSC Splendida are modern and comfortably furnished and have a bathroom with shower, TV, telephone, minibar and safe. The inside and outside cabins measure 12-13 square meters. The balcony cabins, which make up 80% of the cabins, are 17 square meters in size. The suites offer 21-53 square meters depending on the category. Some balcony cabins and all suites have a bathtub instead of a shower.
