A traditional maritime coin ceremony took place on Thursday, September 19, at the Fincantieri shipyard in Monfalcone (near Trieste Italy), when the keel was laid for MSC Cruises' MSC Seashore.

At the milestone event, the cruise company revealed details of the transformed overall design and brand new features of the liner.

MSC Seashore will be the longest ship of the company, 339 metres, when it enters service for MSC Cruises in June 2021, the first of a pair of enriched “Seaside Evo” Class vessels with the latest environmental technology, more cabins, extended public spaces, and the highest ratio of outdoor space per passenger of any ship in the fleet.

Long-standing employees Silvia Bozzetto, Production Planning & Control Commissioning of Monfalcone shipyard,  and Marianna Cicala, Ground Services Planning Manager, MSC Cruises, performed the ritual as godmothers when they placed 2 coins under the keel of the new ship as the historical maritime sign of good fortune and blessing.
