MSC Seashore is officially on her first revenue cruise out of her new homeport of Miami, and today arrived in Falmouth, Jamaica for the first time.
To make the occasion even more special, the ship was joined in port for her first visit by sister ship MSC Divina. Divina was MSC Cruises’ very first vessel to sail from North America back in late 2013. From then until spring 2019, she sailed year-round from Miami, and in spring 2019 transitioned to homeporting in PortMiami on a seasonal basis.
Now, Divina alternates her time between PortMiami and Port Canaveral, and is currently on a Port Canaveral to Miami partial-transit Panama Canal cruise.
MSC Seashore is currently on a 14-night cruise, with other calls including Cozumel, Grand Cayman, San Juan, St. Thomas, Amber Cove, and MSC Cruises’ private Bahamian island Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve.
Seashore is MSC Cruises’ first Seaside EVO-class ship, which is an evolution of the Seaside-class that MSC Seaside and MSC Seaview belong to.
Highlights of MSC Seashore include the glass-floored, outdoor Bridge of Sighs; a Times Square-themed shopping and entertainment district; the MSC Aurea Spa with thermal suite; Butcher’s Cut Steakhouse; an infinity pool; HOLA! Tacos & Cantina; a pirate-themed water park; and the MSC Yacht Club, a ship-within-a-ship complex with common areas exclusive to those staying within the club.
The ship is the longest in MSC’s fleet, coming in at 1,112 feet. Compared to the standard Seaside-class ships, 65 percent of MSC Seashore‘s public spaces have been completely reimagined.
