Like many of the other ships in Princess’s fleet, all cabins are decorated with the upmost taste and painted mostly in white, giving an extremely light and airy feel, with eighty per cent of outside cabins possessing a balcony. Bathrooms have good storage and contain the amenities one expects on a luxury cruise - from plush bathrobes to pampering toiletries. When all cabins have double occupancy, the ship provides a crew to passenger ratio of one for every 2.3 passengers, ensuring there is always be a helping hand at every turn.

Why choose MSC Splendida?

Built in 2008, it is packed with entertainment, activities and eateries, ensuring that travellers who want to explore some of the world's most enticing tourist destinations can do so in style and comfort.

Destinations and Itineraries

This ship was designed for European tastes and waters, and for 2013 and 2014 she stays in the Mediterranean, embarking on a series of cruises which passengers can pick up at different points en route. The Splendida leaves her Genoa home on June 29 and every seven days afterwards on an anticlockwise tour of the western Mediterranean.

The first port of call is the French port of Marseilles, which enables excursions to Provence. Next stop is the Catalan capital of Barcelona before sailing on to Valencia in Spain. A day at sea follows as the ship sails south to Tunis for a brief taste of the African continent. Passengers can explore the city's medina or make a short journey to the site of the ancient city of Carthage. Heading back north the next stop is Civitavecchia, the port for Rome before a return to Genoa.

This route is repeated until the winter months when the ship makes additional stops at the Maltese port of Valletta to view the stone citadel and its beautiful architecture and the Sicilian port of Messina, allowing for day trips to Taormina and the volcano Mount Etna.

Facilities and Facilities

In addition the Splendida has an aquapark with 150 fountains and sprays. For the serious health fanatics there is an on board fitness centre and jogging track. For those who want their exercise to be a little more fun, there is a tennis court, table tennis, golf simulator and mini golf. Passengers in need of pampering will find plenty on board the Splendida to their taste with treatment rooms and a beauty salon, or even stay in the steam room or sauna.

The dress code on the Splendida is casual and comfortable during the day and a varied dress code in the evening, ranging from smart casual to formal, where black tie or a dark suit is required of gentlemen and ladies are asked to wear a cocktail dress.

To ensure the cosmopolitan clientele are entertained, multi-lingual shows are staged after dinner in the ship's tiered theatre. There is also a 4D cinema, library and casino. Any excess energy can be danced off in the disco and alternative entertainment is located in the second show lounge which has a cabaret theme.

Families, couples and single explorers will all be impressed with the service and entertainment choices on board the Splendida. Her size ensures this and creates a stir at every port in the varied itinerary of this state-of-the-art ship.

On Board

This ship has 18 decks of accommodation, recreation and entertainment. There are 1,637 cabins on board, and an impressive majority have balconies. A further 85 have an ocean view and 294 are on the inside of the ship - their design making clever use of lighting and mirrors to create a sense of space. At full capacity the ship can carry 3,959 passengers and the 1,325 crew members create a ratio of one crew member for every three passengers. Despite the number of passengers on board there is plenty of space inside the ship and on deck. There are no less than five pools, one with a sliding glass roof to take full advantage of sunny days, and 12 jacuzzis.

Staterooms

On the top deck the Yacht club suites have butler service with each cabin boasting a separate seating area and bathtubs in the bathrooms. The rest of the cabins are well equipped, with good storage space and tasteful décor. No matter what accommodation option passengers have chosen, each cabin has an interactive TV with at least one channel in English and another channel featuring information on the ship, a telephone, air conditioning, a mini bar and safe, as well as a pay-for internet connection port.

Dining

There are two main dining rooms on board the ship, the main restaurant are at the stern and occupy two floors. All guests are catered for in two sittings but alternative dining options include a French restaurant with an a la carte menu, a Tex Mex restaurant with an open kitchen, a wine bar, a pizzeria and a cafeteria. A piazza near the centre of the ship makes a good pit stop for a quick coffee and pastry.
