Her inaugural season in June 2021 will set sail across the Western Mediterranean, opening with a seven-night itinerary to Barcelona, Marseille, Genoa, Naples, Messina and Valletta.
She will be the first of a brand new class, Seaside EVO Class, which will feature extended public spaces, more staterooms and the highest ratio of outdoor space per guest on any cruise ship in the company’s fleet. The new ship will be built with a capacity of 4,560 guests and will be 52 feet longer than ships found in the Seaside class.
Gianni Onorate, Chief Executive Officer of MSC Cruises, said:
“MSC Seashore is an evolution of the ground-breaking Seaside prototype but this enriched ship has allowed us to further enhance the guest experience with the introduction of new features and facilities as well as some further improvement of the existing ones. With an increased capacity and expanded facilities, MSC Seashore will offer guests myriad opportunities to get closer to the sea, providing yet more options for vacationers to enjoy the beauty of the Mediterranean when the ship comes into service.”
Some of the exciting features to look forward to on-board this ship include:
- Redesigned aft pool
- Brand new comedy club venue
- New wine cellar venue
- Stunning theatre venue
- Five main restaurants including three main, an Aurea venue and a Yacht Club exclusive venue
- Five speciality restaurants
- 20 bars
- More luxurious suites
- An enhanced MSC Yacht Club with two new classes of cabins
- Redesigned interactive water park, further enhanced with VR
- Bigger entertainment facilities including a 5D cinema, rafting simulator, F1 simulator and VR maze
The ship will also feature better-catered family and group staterooms, offering connected staterooms, a larger kids’ area and more seating on the waterfront boardwalk, bringing guests closer to the sea as they dine.
