Ship: MSC Seaside
Route: Miami-Miami round trip
Deck: Deck 12
MSC Cruises’ newest, most advanced cruise ship, MSC Seaside, is the first in a brand-new class of advanced technology ship from this Italian family-owned shipping and cruise line.
The radical new prototype design of her superstructure is intended to create an atmosphere reminiscent of the famous Miami Beach condos – quite fitting as MSC Seaside is based year-round in Miami.
Twin towers rise above a large pool deck that is just a few floors above the waterline and is part of a low-level promenade that encircles the ship. Two glass elevators provide access between that Deck 7 area and the other main ‘Aqua Park’ pool area way up on Deck 16.
Two glass-floored catwalks and a 40m-high ‘Bridge of Sighs’ give guests a truly breathtaking view of the ocean. A wide promenade lined with bars and restaurants encircles Deck 8, which is designed to put people closer to the sea.
MSC Seaside offers the brand’s distinctive entertainment program with innovative shows with high production values, as well as a host of new international dining concepts, including the signature Asian Market Kitchen by renowned Pan-Asian chef Roy Yamaguchi.
Young families can enjoy the Lego-themed play areas for kids up to 12 and teens can knock themselves out on an array of electronic and arcade-style games.
No new MSC vessel would be complete without the exclusive MSC Yacht Club, which is elevated to a whole new level on the Seaside. MSC Seaside offers seven- and 14-night itineraries of the Caribbean from Miami.
