Happy Customers

Surprised to find extras once on board such as $100 OBC and free Internet access for kids that others who booked through other companies didn't get, thank you!"

Get away on the MSC Splendida experiencing 7 relaxing nights on the Italy Malta Spain France Cruise exploring Europe - Mediterranean. The voyage starts out from Rome (Civitavecchia) and visits 6 ports in 4 countries before returning to Rome (Civitavecchia). This particular 4 star cruise from MSC Cruises has 12 forward departures, but is unfortunately sold out for this departure.

MSC Splendida Overview

MSC Splendida cruises the Western Mediterranean out of the major ports. She runs 9-night circles of the Western Mediterranean to France, Spain and Morocco; then 7-night cruises of the western Mediterranean. Board the ship at any port on the itinerary. In December 2017 MSC Splendida transfers to Dubai in the Persian Gulf. She will join MSC Lirica in China from May 2018, visiting destinations in China, Japan and Korea.


Of her 1,637 cabins, 80% have an ocean view, and as many have private balconies they are quite affordable. All cabins have single beds that can be converted into a double bed, air conditioning, bathroom with shower, interactive television, radio, telephone, internet connection (for a fee), minibar, and safe. All cabins and staterooms are modern, comfortable and very stylish. For all cabins continental breakfast is complimentary from 7.30 to 10 am, while room service snacks can be bought at other times. For suites a basket of fruit is provided at embarkation, and replenished daily.

Food and Dining

The ship has four restaurants and two buffet areas. The two-deck La Reggia Restaurant is set-table set-time venue with Mediterranean cuisine and always-available “slow food” – spaghetti, chicken breast, salmon fillets and vegetable of the day. Instead of paying for cold water in dining rooms, fill your own bottle in your cabin, chill it in the mini-bar, and bring it with you at meal times. For breakfast and lunch there is free seating, though be prepared to sit with guests using another language. The alternative restaurant Villa Verde Restaurant is also traditional, offering an assorted Mediterranean menu, including light choices and options that are always available. The ship's L'Olivo, an a la carte speciality restaurant, provides food from 14 countries located in the Mediterranean region. For spicy Mexican cuisine Tex Mex Santa Fe is the right choice. The full-view kitchen completes the traditional atmosphere of this restaurant. All the alternative dining venues charge on an à la carte basis at reasonable prices.


The Strand Theatre is a state-of-the-art 1600 seat venue and its twice-nightly productions have received high acclaim. Some productions may be short, just 30 minutes. Catch a movie in the 4D Cinema. Dance late at Club 33 Disco or have fun at the Royal Palm Casino. For the young set there’s the Graffitti Disco Teen and the video games room Virtual World.
