The MSC Fleet keeps growing with its latest addition, the MSC Seaside, the first of a new state-of-the-art cruising ship generation.
The world’s seas now have a new standard in comfort, entertainment and safety. Read on and be tempted by the most modern cruising experience available today.
MSC SEASIDE was floated out from the leading Italian Shipyard FINCANTIERI on 26 November and is the first MEGA SHIP in the MSC Fleet.
It is the first of two identical ships in the Seaside generation. Her sister ship – MSC Seaview – is set to enter service in the Spring 2018 and will be based in the Western Mediterranean, while a third one – reflecting an existing option for one additional Seaside generation ship – would be delivered by 2021.
This project has taken ship design to a whole new level with a bold concept inspired by an elegant beach condo. With its 323 metres and impressive 160,000 tonnes, MSC SEASIDE will cater for over 5,000 guests.
The idea is to let guests experience the sea and not just float above it. Among its firsts is a breathtaking 360° ocean level promenade, allowing guests to enjoy some of the world’s most mesmerising views even while dining, shopping or just walking around.
A panoramic glass lift will give passengers a unique, changing perspective while the 30 metre bridge on the top deck provides a view higher than from most buildings. But most importantly, the ship has been designed to ensure a window to more than 75% of its cabins. Guests have never been able to enjoy as much sea view in so many spectacular ways.
Guests will be welcomed in an extensive and improved range of comfortable accommodation including chic aft corner suites, clever modular cabins designed for families and groups of up to ten people, as well as a collection of exclusive balcony cabins with a private terrace overlooking the promenade.
The 1600 m2 MSC YACHT CLUB sun deck is just the beginning of the private club improvements. Located in five levels of the foredeck it features private lounge and restaurant, as well as two coveted apartment suites with a living room and a large balcony with a dining area and private whirlpool. A dream come true to the passengers who decide to be papered from start to finish.
The word “eating” has become an understatement. 11 spectacular venues with 5 specialty restaurants, which include a Pan-Asian restaurant created in partnership with world renowned chef Roy Yamaguchi, await the most adventurous and demanding palates. Of these, two are 20-hour buffets to satisfy any little craving whenever you may have one.
Passing the time won’t be a problem for our guests. The aft pool, a first of its kind, is the perfect place to relax while adventure-seekers will love the amazing 120 metre zip line which is just one of four in the ultra-modern interactive aqua parks. Another award-winning feature is a stunning 934-seat theatre offering four performances every night.
MSC Seaside will homeport in Miami as of December 2017 and will sail the Caribbean year round, further enriching MSC Cruises’ offering in the region that, with the addition of MSC Seaside, will mean a total of five of the most modern cruise ships serving the Caribbean.
MSC SEASIDE, a lot more than just going to the seaside.
