MSC Cruises Names New Ship MSC Seashore As First Steel is Cut

The first steel of MSC Seashore has been cut at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy. MSC Seashore will enter into service in spring 2021, and the first Seaside EVO ship will become an even larger sister ship in the Seaside Class carrying 5,632 passengers.

Seaside EVO ships will be equipped with the latest advanced environmental technology, including exhaust gas cleaning; state-of-the-art waste management and recycling systems; advanced water treatment systems; and an advanced energy and heat recovery system.

Other features include

  • An additional lounge at the aft part
  • Enhanced MSC Yacht Club covering three forward decks
  • Speciality restaurants at the level of the promenade at Deck 8 for dining al fresco close to the sea
  • 200 additional cabins

The cutting of the first steel was launched by MSC Cruises’ executive chairman Pierfrancesco Vago and Fincantieri’s chief executive Giuseppe Bono.

Vago said:

With the Seaside Class, we introduced to the market one of the more innovative cruise ship prototypes all-around – our fifth out of six to-date – thus setting a new industry standard for others to follow. Today, only one year after MSC Seaside entered into service, we are taking this award-winning concept to the next level by starting the construction of a further evolved and even richer ship. MSC Seashore is an example of our commitment to bringing the most innovative and technologically-advanced tonnage to the sea, and will be bestowed with the latest and best maritime and environmental technology available.

A second Seaside EVO ship will join MSC Seashore in autumn 2022.
