History

MSC Splendida entered service in March 2009, as a sister ship to MSC Fantasia. She was to be named MSC Serenata, but the name was changed in May 2007 to MSC Splendida "to reflect the ship's beauty and elegance".

MSC Splendida's itineraries cover Mediterranean ports including Marseille; Heraklion; Katakolon; Piraeus; Civitavecchia; Genoa; Messina; Naples; Palermo; Valletta; Barcelona; Málaga; Gibraltar; Palma De Mallorca; Valencia; La Goulette; Izmir; Marmaris; and Atlantic Ocean ports, including Casablanca, Santa Cruz De Tenerife, and Funchal.

MSC Splendida was delivered to MSC Cruises on July 4, 2009. She embarked on her maiden voyage on July 4, 2009, to the Mediterranean and returned July 11, to be officially named on July 12, 2009, in Barcelona by Sophia Loren.

MSC Splendida appeared on Indian Tamil film Manmadan Ambu.
