The 5,632-guest ship is due to enter service in spring 2021 as an enhancement to the European line’s Seaside class.
The name was unveiled at the ship’s steel cutting ceremony at the Fincantieri shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy.
MSC‘s executive chairman Pierfrancesco 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.”
MSC Seashore will feature:
-An enhanced MSC Yacht Club covering three forward deck
-Speciality restaurants for al fresco dining while being close to the sea
-A larger number of whirlpools
-200 additional cabins
-More generous public spaces
Guests can expect the Seaside EVO ships to be equipped with the latest advanced environmental technology, including state-of-the-art waste management and recycling systems; advanced water treatment systems; and an advanced energy and heat recovery system.
18 months later, MSC Seashore will be joined by a second Seaside EVO ship in autumn 2022.
Fincantieri CEO Giuseppe Bono added: “MSC Seashore is designed to impress: first of all due to her size, she will be by far the largest ship ever built in Italy, allowing us to further increase our management standards, but even for her top-class technological level.
She is a prototype that we developed based on a one-of-a-kind and hugely successful platform as Seaside is demonstrating to be.”
MSC also just announced their decision to sign a multi-million pound deal with Chelsea Football Club, which includes LED perimeter advertising, VIP hospitality, and star player engagement.
