New MSC Cruises Ship Sets Sail on Maiden Voyage

MSC Cruises’ newest flagship MSC Seashore has officially set sail on her maiden voyage today in Europe.

Embarking passengers in Barcelona, Marseille, and Genoa on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, respectively, more guests will be welcomed on board the line’s first Seaside EVO ship today in Naples as part of her inaugural seven-night western Caribbean itinerary.

Seashore will then call in Messina, Sicily; Valetta, Malta; and then Barcelona; Marseille; and back to Genoa.

The vessel will spend the rest of the summer and part of fall in the Mediterranean before heading across the Atlantic on an 18-night transatlantic Grand Voyage to Miami.

From Miami, MSC Seashore will offer seven-night cruises to the Bahamas and Caribbean on two different itineraries. The first will call on Ocho Rios, Jamaica; George Town, Grand Cayman; and Cozumel, Mexico. The second itinerary will visit San Juan, Puerto Rico; Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas; and Puerto Plata; Dominican Republic.

As well as those ports, a highlight of every MSC Seashore cruise from Miami will be a stop at Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve, the line’s private island in the Bahamas.

The Seaside EVO class ships are an evolution of the Seaside class vessels, MSC Seaside and Seaview.

Seashore offers the most outdoor space of any MSC Cruises ship sailing from the U.S., and has introduced new outdoor spaces and venues. The vessel features six swimming pools, including an aft infinity pool.

The ship also has 11 dining venues and 18 bars and lounges, including al fresco dining at Butcher’s Cut steakhouse for the first time. As well, Kaito Sushi features a conveyor belt — a first for MSC.

Just like the first two Seaside class ships, Seashore features a glass-floored Bridge of Sighs at the aft, with beautiful and unique ocean views.

For those who enjoy the MSC Yacht Club the ship has the largest one in the fleet, coming in at over 32,000 square feet of space, much of it with sweeping ocean views at the front of the vessel.

MSC Seashore is set to begin sailing from Miami on November 20, 2021.
