Known as ‘the ship that follows the sun, MSC Seaview has re-written the rulebook of cruise ship design to give guests an unmatched connection with the sea.
By blending indoor and outdoor areas with countless panoramic views of the ocean, MSC guests will never forget their unique experience travelling on the water.
Seaview’s most phenomenal features:

(one of the largest interactive water attractions at sea with the first ever Slideboarding technology at sea with interactive games, lights, music and 112 metre water slide)
-Brilliance in the boardwalk
(in keeping with a constant and personal connection at sea, MSC have created a waterfront boardwalk that circumnavigates the ship with restaurants, bars and shops)

(guests will experience an immersive connection with the water, staying closer to the pool than ever before)
(the two-deck, glass-walled atrium will have unforgettable ocean views with unbelievable atmosphere and entertainment)
MSC Seaview’s maiden voyage departed from Genoa on June 7th 2018.
The 3-night round trip including a call in Marseille, France will be prior to week-long Mediterranean cruises from Barcelona, Messina and Genoa.
Vago has also stated: “We are increasing capacity at record speeds. MSC Seaview is the third ship to come into service in just 12 months.
These are very exciting times for us, and we are already merely nine months away of the completion of our next ship, MSC Bellissima– the first of two Meraviglia class ships that will come into service over a six-month period next year.”
June 4th saw MSC take delivery of the ship at Fincantieri shipyard in Monfalcone which paid tribute to an important maritime tradition.
Roberto Olivari, Fincantieri’s shipyard director, handed over to Pier Paolo Scala, Master of MSC Seaview, an ampoule holding the first water that touched the hull when the ship was floated out last year.
MSC’s executive chairman Pierfrancesco Vago commented at the occasion: “MSC Seaview will bring yet another new distinctively innovative MSC Cruises product to the market as she boasts cutting edge design, and features the latest marine and environmental technology.
She is an example of our commitment to bring the best and most innovative tonnage to the market, and our ambition to set each time a new standard in the industry.
