MSC Seaside Cruises

4.5
(from 2 verified customers)

MSC Seaside rewrites the rule book of cruise ship design, combining indoor and outdoor areas to connect you with the sea like never before. Located as low as Deck 8 is a unique seafront promenade lined with places to eat, drink, shop, swim and sunbathe. And you can enjoy superb views from the two glass-floored catwalks and panoramic elevators. She is one of the larger ships in the MSC fleet with a 153,516 GT she is able to carry up to 5331 passengers.

MSC Seaside is superbly modern in design, created especially with families and for suite guests looking for 'ship-within-a-ship' privacy in mind. Young passengers have an aqua park top-of-the-ship with the most interactive and originally-designed aqua park at sea: five water slides aquatubes, tipping buckets, spray cannons, solid stream jets, rain tree, and mini-slide; also an adventure park with rope courses next to the pool; all over two decks and some suspended above the water. Inside there are nine food outlets offering an international range of cuisines, as well as 20 bars. Entertainment areas include the main theatre presenting Broadway shows, a stylish comedy club, sports bar, and even a full-sized bowling alley.

The ship’s enhanced MSC Yacht Club facilities offer a specialty dining room, private solarium, lounge, and pool.
