The MSC Seaview is the 2nd vessel in the Seaside class of MSC ships (the first, the MSC Seaside, launched in December 2017). They have been built with the idea of bringing the sea and the outdoors closer to guests by using some ingenious design aspects. - they have of the highest ratios of outdoor space per guest. Her inaugural cruise season will take place in the Western Mediterranean, starting in June 2018.
The ship is massive. Beautiful finishes. Lots and lots to do. If people want to experience as much as possible of the ship, they’ll definitely want to book a cruise with more than 1 sea day! Particularly if they are planning to get off at all the ports of call.
A 360° waterfront promenade, enclosed with all glass railings, circumnavigates the ship, allowing passengers to get closer to the sea than ever before. Stroll along this ocean-level walkway in the Mediterranean sunshine and choose from bars, restaurants and shops, all whilst having uninterrupted views of the ocean - a tonic for the soul.
Panorama pool on top deck. South beach pool connected to the top deck by two panoramic elevators. Double-deck glass-walled atrium covers two decks, providing a venue for live entertainment with an ocean view. MSC Aurea spa offers Balinese treatments. Thermal area, beauty salon and nail boutique are also part of the spa. Gym equipped with Technogym cardio and strength training equipment.
Newsflash: 23 Aug 2017. The MSC Seaview is floated for the first time, as water is allowed to enter its (previously dry) dock. Once the dock was filled with water the Seaview was towed out by a tug to a wet dock where the next phase of the build will take place.
