MSC Splendida Cabins

Of Splendida's 1,637 cabins, 80 percent have private balconies. There are also 43 cabins that accommodate passengers with special needs. Interior cabins spread throughout the ship measure 172 square feet. Outside cabins with a window -- on Decks 5, 8 and 13 -- vary from 185 to 218 square feet.

Balcony cabins are roomy at 194 square feet, with a balcony at 42 square feet. Mine was designed in a series of tasteful reds, from bedcover and trim to drapes, couch and pillows. At the foot of the bed was a wall-to-ceiling mirror nearly as wide as the bed. I had a small desk with a square backless seat, a small refrigerator and small TV mounted near the outside wall. Balcony furnishings included two chairs and a small table. The closet was plenty for hanging clothes for two, with two shelves and six drawers. There were lights on either side of the bed, but they could not be directed toward anyone reading in bed.

The bathroom was equipped with a shower -- sufficient for a person of average size -- with shower gel and shampoo in a dispenser. The room had three shelves, as well as room beneath the basin for storage.

Suites come in five categories. Balcony suites, at 292 square feet, are about one-and-a-half times the size of standard balcony cabins, with a balcony of 61 square feet. Standard suites range from 236-285 square feet, with balconies of 42-61 square feet. Deluxe suites, which have no balcony, are 223-316 square feet. The largest suites, Executive and Royal, range from 356-571 square feet. All but two have balconies, of 61 - 172 square feet.

The largest of the suites are included in the Yacht Club, which has 71 accommodations on the ship's highest decks. (Once there were 99, but MSC has eliminated cabins on lower decks from the group.) Yacht Club cabins are set apart, with their own special check-in; a butler; free laundry; a private swimming pool, whirlpools and sunning deck; a concierge lounge open and staffed 24 hours with light meals at breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as snacks and free water, wine, beer and coffees. Yacht Club passengers may eat lunch and dinner in L'Olivo alternative restaurant at no charge.

The cabin as such is great. We suffered bed bug stings during the first two nights. But this was immediately remedied when we complained.... Read more

considering it's my first cruise i found that the room was a bit small. often I found myself tripping over our bags. In the morning getting everyone out of the room for breakfast was a bit tough being that we are 4 people in one small toilet. ... Read more
