MSC Seaside Wiki

The Fincantieri Monfalcone-built Seaside is the first of the Seaside-class MSC newbuilds and the first MSC cruise liner christened in the USA (December 21, 2017, in PortMiami). In 2017, Seaside was also the largest passenger ship ever built by Fincantieri. The second Seaside-class ship (MSC Seaview) was delivered in June 2018. There was also an option for a third Seaside-class ship (scheduled delivery 2021). The other MSC vessel launched in 2017 (May) was MSC Meraviglia.

Samsung supported near-field communication systems allowing passengers to use a digital device (smartphone, sail card or bracelet) to locate themselves or their companions on the ship. The new technology also allows cabin access and making onboard payments. Interactive screens throughout the ship allow excursion booking and making restaurant reservations

On June 22, 2015, was held the steel cutting ceremony at Fincantieri’s Monfalcodne shipyard (Trieste, Italy). On March 4, 2016, was held the keel-laying ceremony, during which a 550-ton keel block was laid to officially start the ship's construction/assembly of the prefabricated blocks into sections. On April 21, 2016, at the shipyard was held the coin ceremony. During this traditional event, shipbuilders place special edition coins to bless the new vessel and to bring luck.

 

The vessel was floated out on November 26, 2016, and completed (delivered to MSC) on November 29, 2017. During the delivery ceremony, MSC announced the order of two "Seaside EVO" class ships from Fincantieri (contract value EUR 1,8 billion). The new ships are bigger (16 m longer, 17,330 GT tons heavier, capacity 467 more passengers) in comparison to the sisterships Seaview and Seaside. The EVO-class newbuilds deliveries were scheduled for 2021 (Seashore) and 2023 (TBN).

The company Shores Global LLC provided all the vessel's outdoor wicker furniture (on passenger cabin balconies and poolside). Over 3000 pieces (deckchairs and sun loungers) were produced and delivered at the Fincantieri shipyard in October 2017. The company is a major cruise ship furniture supplier, offering consulting (fabrics and materials) as well as production process management.

Fun fact is that on November 30, 2017 (during ship's launch) the company Marlink (world's largest independent satellite Internet provider) provided over 0,5 gigabit per second throughput on its Sealink VSAT network. Seaside's record-breaking Internet throughput was enabled on Intelsat’s new EpicNG satellites. Marlink is MSC Cruises fleet provider of satellite Internet via optimized "cloud of bandwidth". As of 2017, Marlink had as part of its Sealink network 25 satellites and 32 overlapping beams.

MSC Seaside cruise ship construction

Ship's official naming ceremony was held in Miami on December 21, 2017, and hosted by Mario Lopez. The event's headline entertainer was Ricky Martin (Puerto Rican singer) performing live some of his hit songs.  Another stage performer was Andrea Bocelli (Italian crossover tenor) accompanied by Haitian kids chorus. Among the VIP guests was Dan Marino (Miami Dolphins NFL player). In October 2017, MSC signed an exclusive partnership deal with Miami Dolphins, which allows MSC cruise passengers the exclusive Miami Dolphins experience at sea, as well as to meet team alumni on a sports-themed cruise on MSC Seaside in 2018.

Ship's godmother is Sophia Loren (Italian film actress), who names each new MSC cruise vessel since 2003.

The new vessel design features a novel marine architecture and 2 engine rooms (located forward and aft). Also are implemented new technologies for better efficiency to lower fuel consumption. The ship is powered by all four / two pairs of Wartsila marine diesel engines (model 12V46F) with total power output 62,4 MW.

MSC's Dolphins Fan Cruise

Itinerary March 17-24 (the 7-day Caribbean and Antilles roundtrip from Miami to Nassau Bahamas, St Thomas USVI and St Johns Antigua) was officially themed "Dolphins Fan Cruise". This special voyage was a result of the 3-year partnership between MSC and the NFL team. The sports-themed voyage will be hosted annually over the next 3 years (2017-2020). The 2018 voyage's prices started from USD 700 per person (balcony cabin rates based on double occupancy).

During these sports-theme cruises, passengers have the opportunities to interact in person with team alumni. The list of pre-scheduled onboard activities includes:
