- 2020 - shipbuilding yard closure due to the Coronavirus pandemic (35 cancelled departures in 2021 June-July / 2-months delayed delivery)
|March 2021||Other Incidents|
In late-March 2021, MSC canceled a total of 35 more itineraries scheduled for Seashore ship's inaugural season in the Mediterranean. The canceled departures (June 13 through July 31) were 7-day roundtrips from homeports in Italy (Genoa, Naples, Messina Sicily), France (Marseille), and Spain (Barcelona).
The Maiden Voyage was once again rescheduled - for August 1, 2021 - leaving from Civitavecchia-Rome to Barcelona (5-day), Marseille (6-day) and Genoa (7-day).
|June 2020||Structural and Technical Issues|
MSC bookings on Seashore cruises were opened on June 27, 2019. Sales were open exclusively for MSC Voyagers Club (loyalty program) members for a 2-week period. Bookings for general customers were opened on July 11, 2019.
Unfortunately, due to the March-May 2020 global Coronavirus pandemic, the vessel's construction was halted (Fincantieri's Monfalcone Shipyard was closed for ~2 months) which also resulted in delayed delivery to MSC Cruises (as future shipowner). A total of 35 itineraries were cancelled (roundtrip departures from homeports Genoa, Naples, Messina, Barcelona, Marseille), previously planned for June-July 2021.
The original inaugural cruise date (June 13, 2021, from Genoa) was rescheduled for August 1.
