MSC Seaside is MSC Cruises’ new flagship sailing from Miami to the Caribbean. Known as “The Ship that Follows the Sun,” MSC Seaside’s unique beach condo design brings guests closer to the sea and helps them enjoy the outdoors. Guests can stroll along the widest waterfront boardwalk at sea, with outdoor shops, bars and restaurants, cross the glass-floor catwalks extending off the sides of the ship and experience outdoor spa and fitness activities. MSC Seaside also has expanded internationally inspired dining, including a partnership with pan-Asian pioneer Roy Yamaguchi, who has created the Asian Market Kitchen on board.
The ship’s MSC Aurea Spa is said to be the largest Balinese spa at sea, with a unique thermal area complete with multiple saunas, a Hammam room, a snow room and more for ultimate relaxation. Activities on board include an interactive aqua park with slideboarding technology, ziplining, bowling, an F1 simulator and Broadway-style performances each night.
Coming into service March 2019, MSC Bellissima will be the second of the Meraviglia class of ships and will cruise the Western Mediterranean for its inaugural season. A highlight of MSC Bellissima’s on board entertainment will be two Cirque du Soleil at Sea shows specifically created for MSC Bellissima.
Additionally, new virtual assistant, Zoe, will launch on board MSC Bellissima. The virtual personal assistant is a conversational, voice-enabled Artificial Intelligence (AI) innovation that can communicate, learn and intelligently predict guests’ needs to make relevant suggestions. This offering will provide guests with tailored information to help simplify and enhance their experience by providing quick and easy answers to questions from the comfort of their own stateroom.
Launching in November 2019, MSC Grandiosa is the first in the Meraviglia-Plus class of ships. The new ship will offer guests, among other features, two brand new shows from Cirque du Soleil at Sea. MSC Grandiosa will showcase an even larger Mediterranean-style promenade. Serving as the social hub of the ship, the promenade features an array of shops and specialty restaurants, as well as a new bar and lounge, L’Atelier Bistrot, which will offer lounge seating with a stage and a dance floor. Guests will also be able to enjoy 12 different dining venues on board, as well as state-of-the-art technology.
