    MSC Cruises' MSC Splendida

    MSC Splendida (MSC Cruises)


    MSC Spendida is the second of the Fantasia class. She set sail on her maiden voyage on July 4 2009.

    MSC Splendida was initially called MSC Serenata but her name was changed during construction when Raphaela Aponte (owner of MSC), in adoration of the new ships plans, decided she needed a name “to reflect the ship’s beauty and elegance.”


    MSC Splendida’s horn is well-versed in playing a handful of songs such as We Will Rock You and We Are The Champions by Queen and Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes.

    She also made a guest appearance in an Indian film, Manmadan Ambu.
