The MSC Seaside really is something special

The MSC Seaside really is something special

It’s not often that a cruise ship ushers in a new era in cruising, but this week MSC Cruises officially took delivery of a vessel which will fundamentally change expectations of what it means to cruise. The MSC Seaside is the first of a brand new ‘Seaside’ class of vessel from MSC Cruises which will offer guests a cruising experience unlike any other.

Everything onboard the MSC Seaside encourages you to appreciate the stunning sea views.

MSC Cruises Executive Chairman said of the new vessel, “MSC Seaside coming into service marks another key milestone in the history and future of our Company, but she also embodies a pivotal moment for the industry. In fact, she is the first ship of the fifth new prototype that we bring into service and introduces a wholly-innovative product that sets a new standard for the industry to follow. The Seaside Class of ships is designed to bring guests closer to the sea and to operate in sunny waters, while continuing to push the boundaries of maritime and guest-centric technology.”

The promenade onboard the MSC Seaside is a place where you can happily while away hours.

So what’s so innovative about MSC Seaside? The whole vessel is designed to follow the model of a seaside resort, which has resulted in some pretty novel features. For a start, over 75% of staterooms have an ocean view, which is virtually unheard of. Then there’s the wraparound open air promenade where you can take in the sea breezes or duck into one of the many bars restaurants and shops strung along the way. If you’ve got a steady head for heights, you won’t want to miss the Bridge of Sighs, a glass-bottomed pathway strung 40 metres above the ocean waves. Even the lifts are designed for optimal ocean views, with the elevators from the main pool areas up to higher decks encased in clear glass so guests can enjoy panoramic sights as they ascend. Even the kids will be kept happy with a 5D cinemas, the most interactive aquapark at sea (featuring duelling waterslides!) the longest zip lines on a cruise ship and a full size bowling alley.

The aquapark on the MSC Seaside gives cruisers the perfect opportunity to cool off.

Needless to say, this is a vessel to keep your eye on. Given the raft of unique features that the Seaside sports, keen cruisers will be flocking to book a spot on this remarkable ship as soon as they can. You can make sure you’re amongst them by heading to the MSC Seaside sailings page and picking out whichever date and destination appeals most!

From party cruises in the Baltic to a classy Cunard voyage, I’ve been lucky enough to experience the full spectrum of cruise life. Onboard you’ll probably find me by the pool with a doorstop sized book in one hand and a mojito in the other, or sampling an array of delicious foods.
