Very helpful when we forgot to take our schedule of travel into the Chinese embassy to obtain our visa. Athena was kind enough to fax the paperwork through straight away enabling us to apply for the visa instead of making another trip into the city which was very much appreciated."

Life aboard MSC Splendida
MSC Splendida is a world traveller. Until mid-February 2020 the ship is in the Far East, then returns from Shanghai to Hamburg over 54 nights via the Suez Canal. The itinerary stays overnight at Dubai, Bangkok and Hong Kong, and visits many ports missed by other cruise ships. For four months MSC Splendida sails out of Kiel (Germany) to the Baltic ports and southern Norway. Later in the year she cruises the western Mediterranean. In mid-November 2020 the ship crosses the Pacific to sail the eastern and southern Caribbean from the island ports of Martinique and Basse-Terre. Choose either of two 7-night itineraries, or join them for 14 nights. You’ll visit a port a day and visit a dozen islands.

In service since 2009 at 137,936 GT she carries 3,274 passengers. This is the most innovative ship built by MSC, and is rather special. New are the Yacht Club ship-within-a-ship living space with Courtyard Villa complex, retractable glass pool roof, 4D with strapped-in-seats cinema, Balinese spa, and high ratio of balcony staterooms. English speaking travellers who are comfortable with European service and cuisine will find the ship a delight. Dining places offer an excellent range. Note that specialty restaurants have no extra charge, but the menu is à la carte with reasonable prices. This ship is best suited to young couples, singles, families who enjoy big ship city life, with its mix of noise, nationalities and languages. MSC Cruises are family orientated, and children are very much catered for, filling the ship in school holidays. Children sail free on certain itineraries, sharing a cabin with two adults.

Accommodation
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.

A total of 72 suites are located on two aft decks, called the “MSC Yacht Club”. Guests have access to their own VIP areas, receive priority treatments, various luxuries and a 24-hour butler service. New Aurea Suites at forefront of ship, offering great views and have close access to Aurea Spas. The black marble floor and glass staircase joining the two decks gives access to exclusive hydro-massage pools, skydome swimming pool, solarium, and observation lounge with bar. There are no single cabins, and 43 wheelchair-accessible across all cabin grades. Room service food is charged per item.

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.

There’s no tea or coffee for lunch and dinner in the dining rooms, only in the buffet. You may have to ask for milk. Casual breakfasts and lunches are available in a large self-serve buffet eatery. Other cafeteria eateries are Bora Bora and Pago Pago. There are numerous lounges and bars: The Purple Jazz Bar, decorated with beautiful lighting and purple shades, serves beer, wine, spirits and snacks; and the Sports bar, a wine bar, Piano Bar, Cygar Room and an aperitif bar. Sample the delights of La Piazzetta, with its bar ice-cream parlour, pastry and chocolate shop. Sit and watch fellow passengers pass by at L’Espresso Coffee Bar with its coffees, teas and chocolates.

Entertainment
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.

For fitness and health, the MSC Aurea Spa is equipped with treadmills, Nordic machines and individual aerobic machines. The spa area has three Thalassotherapy cabins and 15 massage rooms, with a Balinese treatment facility. Spas are operated by Blue Ocean, and treatments include acupuncture. Deck tennis, basketball, water slides, hot tubs, daytime aerobics, squash and shuffleboard will keep you active. For those who prefer to sit, the ship has interactive Formula 1 race simulators. Children are well provided for, from three years to late teens
