During summer, MSC Splendida operates Baltic Sea and British Isles cruises out of Hamburg. From May 2018 MSC Splendida will serve the Chinese market following dry dock refurbishment planned for 2017.

In 2018, MSC deploys Splendida to China (replacing MSC Lirica / repositioned there since May 2016) in order to meet the Asian market's growing demand. From May 2018, Splendida will serve the Chinese market following a drydock refurbishment (November-December 2017). The new Asian cruise itineraries will include ports in Japan, Korea and China (details are yet to be revealed).

MSC Splendida Wiki

Splendida is MSC's largest Fantasia-class liner (inaugural cruise July 4, 2009, christened on July 11), with sisterships DivinaFantasiaPreziosa. Initially, this MSC ship was to be named "Serenata" (renamed in 2007). 

Don't forget that on MSC Splendida cruises kids sail for free!

(March 18, 2015 accident) MSC Cruises Splendida ship was docked at the La Goulette cruise port (Tunis, North Africa) when terrorists started shooting at civilians in front of the Bardo museum. Among the victims (21 killed, over 25 injured) were 12 cruise passengers from Splendida and 5 passengers from the Costa Fascinosa ship, plus local civilians and police officers. The MSC line decided to replace Tunisia with Malta (La Valletta port) for all Western Mediterranean 2015 cruises.

In 2018, MSC deployed Splendida to China (replacing MSC Lirica / repositioned there since May 2016) in order to meet the Asian market's growing demand. From May 2018, Splendida will serve the Chinese market following a 2017 dry dock refurbishment. The Asian itineraries will include ports in Japan, Korea and China (details are yet to be revealed). The ship's customization for the Chinese market featured a new restaurant (via a partnership with celebrity chef Jereme Leung), new "MSC for Me” program (with Deloitte), new shipwide artificial intelligence translation system (based on the Baidu search engine and technology provided by Tuge). The new translation system automatically identifies the languages spoken and translates, allowing passenger-crew interactions in real time.

Ship’s Captain is Giuseppe Moresco.

On December 18, 2018, MSC announced a partnership with celebrity chef Harald Wohlfahrt (3-starred Michelin chef). The German chef created a new menu of Mediterranean and international specialties for the exclusive MSC Yacht Club Restaurant on Meraviglia, Splendida, and Preziosa. The enhanced menu is offered only on cruises in Northern Europe. He also created two new main courses for the "Elegant Night" - a formal dining event held in the Main Dining Room on each voyage. Chef Wohlfahrt also completed an interactive training to all MSC's cruise ship chefs.
