Contact Your Cruise Travel Expert

MSC Seashore, third of the four Seaside class ships, will be the company’s longest, largest and most innovative when she launches in July 2021 and becomes the new flagship of MSC Cruises. Designed for warmer weather destinations, she will sail the Western Mediterranean in her inaugural season.

As with the other Seaside generation ships, MSC Seashore offers a range of breathtaking and stand-out design features to enable you, the guest, to connect with the sea, such as the spectacular Bridge of Sighs and stylish glass catwalks.

Some of the new enhancements include the 16-meter extended length of the ship, 10,000 square meters 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 parts of the ship.

MSC Seashore will offer a wider range of accommodation options with more suites including 28 more terraced suites, two suites with private whirlpools and the MSC Yacht Club with two new stateroom categories with 41 Deluxe Grand Suites and two Owner’s Suites with whirlpools. Families will be able to benefit from cluster staterooms that link two or three adjoining staterooms and can accommodate between six and 10 guests.

Two brand new restaurants will be introduced and five specialty restaurants will allow for waterfront seating on the ship’s stunning boardwalk to give her guests a greater sea view as they dine al fresco. Together with a new double-decker aft lounge, a bigger casino and 20 distinct specialty bars, cafés and lounges, MSC Seashore will awe even seasoned cruisers.

MSC has adapted their service and seating layouts to allow for social distancing, and all meals and drinks will be served at your table. Self-service at the buffet restaurant will be temporarily unavailable, and the food will be plated and served by MSC’s crew.

MSC Seashore, the 169,500 GT ship with a maximum capacity of 5,877 guests, will be equipped with the latest technologies to minimize her environmental footprint. She will be fitted with a state-of-the-art selective catalytic reduction system to reduce nitrogen oxide by 90 per cent and a next-generation advanced wastewater treatment system 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. These features will add to other effective environmental technologies deployed on MSC Seashore, and across the company’s fleet, to minimise and continuously reduce environmental impact, and ensure even cleaner air emissions, advanced waste management systems, ballast water treatment systems, latest-technology systems for the prevention of oil discharges from machinery spaces and various effective energy-efficiency improvements – from heat recovery systems to LED lighting.
