Get Closer to the Sea Onboard MSC Seaside

08 Dec 2017 | by Sarah Clarke

MSC Seaside is the first ship to launch from MSC Cruises’ Seaside Class and has been designed to bring guests closer to the sea. Built at Italy’s famous Fincantieri shipyard in 2017, MSC Seaside weighs 160,000 tonnes and can accommodate more than 4,000 passengers onboard.

With the fun of the seaside and magnetic sea views in mind, MSC Seaside features glass floored catwalks, panoramic glass lifts and many other public spaces with fantastic viewing points. Life onboard is fun and fabulous for all with activities and entertainment available for the whole family.

Highlights onboard MSC Seaside include the new and extended children's area featuring partnerships with LEGO and CHICCO, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, an adventure ropes course, the longest zip-line at sea, extensive AquaPark with slides and up to seven different live shows in the new Metropolitan Theatre.

Luxury can be found onboard through the MSC Yacht Club, featuring luxurious suites with 24 hour butler service plus an exclusive new pool and lounge area with incredible views.

We caught up with MSC Cruises’ MD for UK and Ireland Antonio Paradiso onboard, to see what he had to say about MSC Seaside and what makes her stand out from the rest of the MSC Cruises’ fleet.



MSC Cruises are confident that guests will love MSC Seaside and have announced a further two ships to join Seaside Class by 2021. MSC Seaview launches June 2018 and the third ship, yet to be named, is expected for delivery in 2021.

In the meantime, enjoy the sleek and stylish life onboard MSC Seaside with an exotic and memorable cruise to the Caribbean. Browse our MSC Seaside cruises now.
