MSC Cruises’ newest upcoming ship, MSC Seaside is now open for booking. Known as “the ship that follows the sun,” it is currently under construction at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy and will debut in December 2017.
MSC Seaside will sail year-round from Miami with seven-night western Caribbean itineraries to Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, Cozumel, and the Bahamas. The ship will also sail to the eastern Caribbean, calling in the Bahamas, St. Thomas, and Puerto Rico. The first sailing will be a Christmas cruise on December 21, 2017.
To reward loyal guests, MSC has opened sales exclusively to MSC Voyager Club members through December 29. Members that book between today and the 29th will receive a bonus all-inclusive classic drink package on sailings seven nights or longer, as well as their standard 5% discount. On the 29th, bookings will open to everyone and anyone who books between that day and January 31 will also receive the all-inclusive classic drink package. Club members will continue to receive their 5% discount and the drink package for bookings through January 31 as well.
MSC Seaside will feature a 360 degree ocean level promenade on deck 8 that features restaurants, shops, a buffet, and a pool. The ship will also feature a glass walled atrium and exterior panoramic elevators. It will be the first MSC ship to head directly to the United States from the shipyard, and the first MSC ship to be christened in the US.
Prices for MSC Seaside‘s inaugural season cruises start at $589 per person.
