MSC Cruises Takes Delivery of MSC Seaside and Signs New Order!

Wednesday, November 29, 2017 was an important day for MSC Cruises as the Fincantieri Shipyard officially delivered MSC Seaside to MSC Cruises. Captain Pier Palo Scala was gifted with the water that first touched MSC Seaside’s hull in her construction process and she is now officially a member of the MSC Cruises fleet, which brings the total up to fourteen beautiful ships.
MSC Seaside is currently en-route to Trieste, Italy where she will pick her passengers for the ship’s maiden transatlantic crossing to the Port of Miami, where she will be based for seven-night Easter and Western Caribbean cruises.

MSC Cruises also made a very big announcement today at the Seaside’s Delivery Ceremony, where the company, (who had originally announced a plan to construct three Seaside class ships), will now be introducing two Seaside EVO class ships in 2021 and 2023. MSC Seaview, the second ship of the Seaside class who is currently being built in Fincantieri will debut this upcoming June, 2018 for a Mediterranean inaugural season. Originally the company had ordered only three ships in the Seaside class, with all of them of equal size, however with the new plans in place for Seaside EVO class, guests can now look forward to larger, enhanced Seaside vessels. This announcement serves to showcase MSC Cruises’ commitment to fleet expansion and serving the global demand for a cruise experience unlike any other. Keep them coming Fincantieri!
