About MSC Cruises
MSC Cruises offers its guests mediterranean and modern lifestyle at a good price-performance ratio. On the sometimes colorful, sometimes discreetly designed ships, guests of all ages feel comfortable. In the summer months, many families are on board, especially at Mediterranean cruises, many Italian families spread Italian cheerfulness. In the off-season, it is a little quieter, then many older guests come on board, to experience a cheap cruise. The ships also arrive well in the German market and the number of German guests is growing steadily. The ships of the MSC fleet take with double occupancy between 1500 and 5700 passengers on board. English skills are recommended, but you also get some German service on board. MSC is going to become the first ever global cruise company with climate-neutral ship operations. All co2 emissions of the fleet will be compensed with projects that count on Blue Carbon Credits.
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.
