Public spaces will stretch over 27,000m² and offer, among others, a main show lounge with 1,700 seats and a panoramic disco on deck 16.
Experience the Italian Meal - an art form in itself. A zest of flavours and gaiety of colours from around the world will have you coming back for more. From pasta dishes and fresh fish to filet mignon and prime rib, warm hospitable service is a constant theme throughout. Visit the midnight buffet for a late night snack, before dancing the night away...
MSC Cruises UK has also introduced a more flexible buffet service. The buffet is open non-stop for 20 hours a day, from 6:00 until 2:00. Guests can now enjoy more flexible times for traditional Mediterranean and International cuisine.
Whether you are here to enjoy the shows, to dance the night away or to star gaze on the wonderful sun deck, the Splendida is ready and waiting to entertain you.
The lounges have bands playing music for all tastes from pianists and string quartets to pop, rock and oldies. Many of our nightly shows have an accent of the Mediterranean—vivid Flamenco dancers from Spain or historical glances back to Old Europe.
Next, it's time for Vegas. Test your luck with poker, roulette or blackjack in the casino. After a visit to the midnight buffet for a late-night snack, have one more dance or slip off for a night cap.
Onboard the Splendida you'll find fluffy towels and plush robes for the steam room and sauna, delicate flower petals and warm lighting in your massage room and all new, state-of-the-art fitness equipment in the gym. Right near the luxurious private spa treatment rooms, there is a relaxation and meditation area surrounded by glass overlooking the open ocean. Furnished with small teak beds and located on the top deck of the ship, it is the perfect place for some quiet time to rest and rejuvenate.
MSC's beauty treatments blend the best of ancient and modern practices incorporating elements of natural minerals, healing salts and aromatherapy to modern methods such as electronic stimulation. The health centre offers specialized treatments targeted for various purposes including anti-wrinkle facial treatments, firming and exfoliating all-over body treatments and several types of massage incorporating shiatsu, reflexology and sports therapy. The salon offers the full range of services from cuts and colouring to make-up application and waxing.
Each day brings different activities. Sleep in or wake up early. Stroll around the deck or run on the jogging track. Get refreshed with a swim or relaxed in the whirlpool. Work out at the gym or try out one of the aerobic and step classes offered on board. Join in a game of cards, table tennis or shuffleboard or play a game of tennis or volleyball. The library is stocked with books for your perusal. There’s the Internet Café to email friends and family with updates throughout your journey, duty-free shopping boutiques, a video arcade and a card room—or you can enjoy the simple pleasure of lounging on a deck chair under the warmth of the sun sipping tropical drinks.
