MSC Seaside (MSC Cruises)


MSC Seaside is the first ship of the Seaside class. She was built in Monfalcone by Fincantieri in 2015 and was their biggest cruise ship build and 14th largest in the world when she debuted.

She was the first MSC ship to be designed with the Northern American market in mind and was thus christened in Miami, Florida.


MSC Seaside features a large multi-level waterpark custom-designed by specialist waterpark-ride builders WhiteWater West.
