MSC Cruises Floats Out the MSC Seashore
MSC Cruises has successfully floated out its first Seaside Evo vessel, the MSC Seashore, at the Fincantieri shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy today.
The 5,877-passenger ship -- the longest in the MSC fleet at 1,112 feet, and the largest cruise ship ever constructed in Italy -- will be an evolution of the line's popular MSC Seaside and MSC Seaview, which launched in 2017 and 2018 respectively.
Slated to launch in July 2021, MSC Seashore will offer some significant enhancements over its fleet mates, however, including newly-designed public spaces, additional cabins, and the highest outdoor space ratio per passenger of any ship in the MSC fleet.
According to the line, over 65 percent of the ship has been enhanced and rethought to differentiate MSC Seashore from its older sisters.
MSC Seashore will introduce a number of enhancements over MSC Seaside and MSC Seaview. These include 107,000 square feet of new open deck space; a larger MSC Yacht Club; and enhancements to passenger flow throughout the vessel.
The ship will also offer 28 new terraced suites; two suites with private whirlpools; and two new cabin categories set aside for MSC's Yacht Club "ship-within-a-ship" luxury concept.
The vessel will also offer two brand-new restaurants onboard and five relocated specialty restaurants that will offer outdoor seating on the vessel's Boardwalk, or Promenade Deck, area.
MSC Seashore will also introduce a new two-story lounge at the aft of the ship, along with an enlarged casino and 20 bars and lounges. The aft pool design will be modified, and a new interactive waterpark will be developed for passengers of all ages.
