MSC Unveils New Features of MSC Seashore
Latest Update: May 18, 2021
MSC Cruises has shared new updates on the design and features of its newest vessel MSC Seashore. The vessel is slated to make its official debut in the Mediterranean this August and will arrive in Miami in November. MSC Seashore is the sister ship to MSC Seaside and is promised to be one of the most innovative and game-changing vessels offered by the line.
At approximately 1,112 ft., MSC Seashore will become the longest ship in the MSC fleet, as well as the largest ship ever to be built in Italy by Fincantieri, one of the world’s largest shipbuilding groups and leaders in cruise ship design and construction.
Starting November 20, MSC will offer weekly seven-night cruises on MSC Seashore from PortMiami to the Bahamas and Caribbean, and to Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve.
“As the world’s third-largest cruise brand, MSC Cruises continues to expand in the U.S., bringing its newest, most innovative ships to the market – as we’re doing with MSC Seashore,” said Rubén Rodríguez, president of MSC Cruises USA. “This new ship is the first of its kind — an enhanced and enlarged version of the extremely popular MSC Seaside — and we couldn’t be more excited to introduce our U.S. guests to this new cruising experience.”
Here's a look at the highlights of what guests can expect on MSC Seashore.
