MSC Seashore Review

Review of MSC Seashore

The 2021-built MSC Seashore cruise ship is scheduled for inauguration in August 2021 as MSC's 19th liner. This is the first Seaside EVO-Class vessel - with sistership (yet unnamed/currently on order) scheduled for delivery in 2022-Q4.

History - construction and ownership

MSC Cruises (MSC Crociere) is a passenger shipping company headquartered in Genoa and Naples. It was established in 1960. Today, MSC Crociere is a subsidiary of MSC (Mediterranean Shipping Company) - the world's 2nd largest containership company. MSC Crociere is the world's largest privately/family-owned cruise company. By annual passenger shipping volumes, MSC is ranked the world's 4th largest cruise company - after Carnival Corporation, RCG-Royal Caribbean Group and NCLH-Norwegian.

MSC Seashore cruise ship

In 2015, MSC ordered four new ships - two from STX France (Meraviglia and Bellissima) and two from Fincantieri Italy (Seaside and Seaview), with optional three more vessels. The first two liners were delivered in 2017 - Meraviglia (May) and Seaside (November), Seaview in 2018 (June). Bellissima in 2019 (March).

The 5900-passenger Seaside EVO-Class ship design is an enlarged version of the Seaside-Class. Both classes were developed for year-round operations in warm climates. This explains signature features like large-sized outdoor areas, top-deck ropes course, 5-slide water park, 3 glass-floored catwalks, glass-walled (oceanview) elevators, wraparound Promenade Deck (at sea level) with shops, bars and restaurants (indoor-outdoor seating). Seaside-EVO ships have larger MSC Yacht Club (a suite complex), larger public areas, more outdoor whirlpools, more specialty restaurants with alfresco dining areas (on Promenade Deck 8), 200 more cabins (for 467 more passengers).

Among vessel's technological features are advanced water- and garbage treatment plants, latest-generation scrubbers (pollution control technology removing particulates some gases from ship's exhaust streams), optimized hull, anti-fouling paints (specialized underwater hull coating), advanced heat recovery system, LED lighting (throughout). The vessel is fully compliant with IMO's "Safe Return to Port" requirement (how long the cruise ship should remain safe for evacuation).

 

Seashore is also one of the "smart ships" series and part of MSC's EUR 13,6 billion 10-year (2017-2027) fleet expansion program that includes 17 newbuilds - up to a combined fleet of 29 liners.

MSC Seaside-class cruise ship

MSC Seashore is fitted with new technologies specifically designed to improve passengers' onboard digital experience. MSC partnered with Samsung to support NFC (near-field communication) technology enabling passengers to use digital devices (smartphones, cruise card, bracelets) to geolocate themselves (and their relatives, kids, travel companions), to access their staterooms or make onboard payments. Interactive screens throughout the ship allow real-time booking (cruise and tours) and making reservations (dining, spa, beauty treatments). Beacon technology sends location-based, customized notifications to passengers' phones as they move around the ship. Beacons are triggered whenever a connected device moves into their vicinity.

Cruise itinerary program

MSC Seashore itinerary program (at least the inaugural cruise season) is based on 7-day Western Mediterranean cruises leaving roundtrip from homeports in Spain, Italy and France - Barcelona, Naples, Genoa, Marseille. Call ports include Messina (Sicily), Portofino (Italian Riviera) and Valletta (Malta).

Based on its design, during winter the liner could be deployed in the Caribbean (homeport TBA) and will eventually offer repositioning cruises (Transatlantic crossings between USA and Europe-Mediterranean) in Spring and Fall.

Decks and Cabins

MSC Seashore staterooms (2270 total) are in 34 categories. The largest category is the YC Royal Suite (615 ft2). Seashore's cabins and suites include 14x aft-facing corner suites, 28x suites with outdoor jacuzzi (on the balcony), 6x bow-facing Grand Suites (2-bedroom, with swimming pools on the balcony), terraced suites (overlooking Promenade Deck), cluster cabins (for large families), 75x wheelchair-accessible cabins for disabled passengers (including 43x Inside, 8x Oceanview, 26x Balcony, 4x Suite).

Family staterooms' max occupancy varies between 6 (SUPERFAMILY) and 10 (SUPERFAMILY PLUS) passengers.

The boat has 18 decks, of which 11 are passenger-accessible and all with cabins.

Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks

New dining options on MSC Seashore include the Fusion Restaurant (specialty) and VIP Fine Dining Restaurant. Ship's eateries offer cuisine specialties from all around the world, including Pan-Asian (premium steakhouse and seafood restaurant via a partnership with chef Roy Yamaguchi, with Chef’s Table experience).

The ship offers 10x large-capacity eateries - 5x select restaurants (3x MDRs /main dining rooms, Aurea Restaurant, Yacht Club Restaurant) and 5 themed food venues (Seafood Restaurant, Steak House, Teppanyaki, Sushi Bar, Bistrot) plus 20x specialty bars and lounges.

MSC Seashore Wiki

During MSC Seaside delivery ceremony (November 29, 2017), MSC Cruises announced an order for two "Seaside EVO" ships from Fincantieri (contract value EUR 1,8 billion). The new ships are 17,330 GT tons bigger), 16 m (52 ft) longer and with 467 more passengers (capacity) in comparison to the sisterships Seaview and Seaside. Deliveries were scheduled for 2021 May (Seashore) and 2023 February (TBN).

In early-August 2018, MSC signed an agreement for EUR 1,5 billion (USD 1,74 billion) for both Seaside EVO shipbuilding projects. The financing was via a partnership with a syndicate of three lender banks (Unicredit, BNP Paribas, Cassa Depositi e Prestiti). Fully backing the credit line was the Italian export credit agency SACE SIMEST. With the addition of Seaside EVO ships, MSC had an unprecedented total investment of EUR 10,5 billion into 12 newbuilds with scheduled deliveries by 2027.

On November 26, 2018, was held vessel's steel-cutting ceremony at Fincantieri Monfalcone Shipyard (Trieste, Italy), with which officially started its construction. The special event was attended by Pierfrancesco Vago (MSC's Executive Chairman) and Giuseppe Bono (Fincantieri's CEO).

Ship's keel-laying ceremony (aka coin ceremony) was held on September 19, 2019, at the Monfalcone yard. Ceremony's godmothers (madrinas) were two shipyard employees - Silvia Bozzetto (Production Planning and Control Commissioning Manager) and Marianna Cicala (Ground Services Planning Manager). The godmothers placed 2 special edition coins under the keel block (hull's first block) for good fortune. The special event was again attended by Pierfrancesco Vago (MSC) and Giuseppe Bono (Fincantieri). The vessel was launched (floated out from drydock) on August 20, 2020. The ceremony was attended by Giuseppe Bono and Pierfrancesco Vago.

MSC Seashore cruise ship construction

Fun fact is that MSC EVO shipbuilding project involves 10+ million hours of construction works and ~4000 shipyard employees. The ship design features large play areas for children, Adventure Trail ropes course, an interactive aqua park with 5 waterslides, 3 glass-floored catwalks, Promenade Deck (at sea level) lined up with shops and restaurants (with both indoor-outdoor seating), glass-walled (sea-view) elevators,

 

The company Shores Global LLC provided all the vessel's outdoor wicker furniture (on passenger cabin balconies and poolside) or 3000+ pieces (deckchairs and sun loungers). The company is a major cruise ship furniture supplier, offering consulting (fabrics and materials) and production process management.

Traditionally for all MSC cruise ships, Seashore's godmother will be Sophia Loren (Italian film actress), who names each new MSC liner since 2003.

Inaugural cruise itineraries 2021

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.

Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus crisis, the vessel's construction was halted (after the shipbuilding yard was temporarily closed in 2020) which also resulted in delayed delivery to MSC Cruises (future shipowner). A total of 35 itineraries were cancelled (roundtrip departures from homeports Genoa, Naples, Messina, Barcelona, Marseille).

The original Inaugural Cruise (June 13, 2021) was a 7-day Mediterranean itinerary roundtrip from Genoa/Genova. The ship also offers roundtrips from homeports Barcelona, Marseille, Naples, and Messina.

Next tables show the rescheduled inaugural cruises from each homeport.
