The MSC Splendida has three swimming pools--two on deck 14 and the third on deck 15. Like most new large cruise ships, the MSC Splendida has a large video screen overlooking its outdoor pool. This pool is surrounded by deck chairs and hot tubs, and is a popular gathering spot on sunny days. The ship also has L'Equatore, a swimming pool with a retractable cover. Since the MSC Splendida sails in the Mediterranean year-round, this cover will come in handy on those winter days. The Playa del Sol, or Zen Area, is an adults-only retreat on deck 15. It features a pool, hot tubs, deck chairs, and bar.
Those looking for a quiet place to sit outdoors in the sun or shade might like to try the Solarium with its comfortable chairs and quiet atmosphere.
In addition to the pools, the ship has a sports arena and sports courts.
