The ship will spend its inaugural season in the Western Mediterranean, homeporting in Genoa, Marseille and Barcelona. Ports of call include Naples, Messina in Sicily and Malta.
Gianni Onorato, ceo of MSC Cruises, commented, ‘Our company’s heritage lies in the Mediterranean and it was only natural that MSC Seaview – our third next-generation smart ship that comes into service in June 2018 – would be deployed in its historic and culture-rich waters.’
Described by MSC as the ‘ship that follows the sun’ the design of the Seaside-generation ships, under construction at Fincantieri, is based on a beach condo concept, bringing guests and the sea closer, with special design elements that allow them to make the most of the warmer weather.
A design feature of MSC Seaview is the 360° promenade with glass balustrades that runs around the entire ship allowing guests to make the most of the sea and the sunshine.
In partnership with Samsung, next-generation technology will include everything from the latest displays and mobile solutions to products for enhanced reality consumer retail experiences.
More details of MSC Seaview’s features will be revealed in the coming months.
MSC Seaview will commence the maiden voyage from Genoa, Italy on June 10, 2018. Sales for the ship open today for MSC loyalty club members and on July 18 for all other guests.
MSC Seaview’s sister ship MSC Seaside enters service in December 2017, sailing year-round from Miami to the Caribbean with stops in the Bahamas, Mexico, Jamaica and Puerto Rico, Grand Cayman, St. Thomas and the exclusive Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve.
