MSC Seashore, which will be the cruise line’s longest ship at 1,112 ft. and the largest and most innovative ever built in Italy, has now been moved to a wet dock until her delivery in July 2021 to allow for work on her interior.

After an inaugural season in the Mediterranean, MSC Seashore will make her way to the U.S., arriving in Miami in November 2021. From there, she will sail 7-night Caribbean itineraries, including stops at MSC Cruises’ private island in the Bahamas, Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve.

MSC Seashore will become the third of a total of four vessels in MSC Cruises’ innovative and ground-breaking Seaside class of ships, following MSC Seaside and MSC Seaview, which launched in 2017 and 2018 respectively, and the first of two enriched Seaside Evo ships with newly designed public spaces, more staterooms and the highest ratio of outdoor space per guest of any ship in the Company’s fleet. More than 65 percent of the ship has been enhanced to make MSC Seashore a significant evolution of her sister ships.

The 169,500 gross ton ship with a maximum capacity of 5,877 guests (4,540 double occupancy), will be equipped with the latest technologies to minimize her environmental footprint.

MSC Seashore will be fitted with a state-of-the-art selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system to reduce nitrogen oxide by 90 percent and a next-generation advanced wastewater treatment system (AWTS) to treat wastewater to a very high quality where the end product is of a better standard than most land-based municipal waste standards around the world.

MSC Seashore will also be fitted with shore-to-ship power which connects a docked cruise ship to a port’s local power grid to further reduce air emissions. This feature is broadly available across MSC Cruises’ entire fleet and has been standard across all of the Company’s new ships since 2017.

MSC Seashore, as with the other iconic Seaside generation ships, offers a range of breath-taking and stand-out design features to enable guests to connect with the sea, such as the spectacular Bridge of Sighs, stunning panoramic aft elevators and stylish glass-floor catwalks.

Some of the new enhancements include an additional 52 ft. of extended length of the ship, 107,639 sq. ft. of additional deck space for an even greater and more spacious onboard experience, a larger MSC Yacht Club — the all-inclusive ‘ship within a ship’ premium concept — and an enhanced guest flow, with two central meeting points positioned at the middle and forward part of the ship.

MSC Seashore will offer a wider range of accommodation with more suites including 28 additional terraced suites, two suites with private whirlpools and, in the MSC Yacht Club, two new stateroom categories offering 41 Deluxe Grand Suites and two Owner’s Suites with whirlpools.

Families will be able to benefit from modular connected staterooms that can connect to accommodate between six and 10 people, plus bigger and more spacious staterooms for guests needing greater accessibility, with 75 in total available.
Two brand new restaurants will be introduced and five specialty restaurants will be newly located to allow for waterfront seating on the ship’s stunning boardwalk to give guests a greater sea view as they dine al fresco.

MSC Seashore will also have a new double-decker aft lounge, a larger casino and 20 distinct specialty bars, cafes and lounges. The ship will feature a new aft pool design, an enlarged indoor pool and a new interactive waterpark, which will provide thrills and spills for guests of all ages. Clubs for young children and teenagers have been separated from a larger kids’ zone.

The cruise ship will feature the latest customer-centric technology with MSC for Me available across multiple digital channels, offering guests a stress-free way to plan and book the things that matter to them. Guests can access information across a range of digital touchpoints including a useful app, interactive in-stateroom TV, interactive screens around the ship as well as ZOE, the virtual personal cruise assistant, available in every stateroom.
