Typical Passengers

With its base in Miami and Caribbean itineraries, MSC Seaside caters to primarily cruisers from North America, particularly the southern states and East Coast. You’ll hear English and Spanish onboard, with a mix of first-time cruisers and repeat travellers. The ship caters to families with children, due to the expanded kids club and plentiful outdoor recreation spaces including an action-packed Aqua Park. 

Ship Amenities

This attractively designed ship makes the most of its outdoor spaces, encouraging passengers to enjoy the view with glass-enclosed elevators and wraparound balconies. Its motto is ‘the ship that follows the sun,’ and to that effect the décor is glittering throughout with plenty of mirrors and chrome accents apart from the signature Swarovski crystal staircase. The central atrium stretches upward for four decks, with giant LED screens showcasing shifting scenes of nature and the night sky. Outdoors, passengers can play around in the water park, adventure course and ziplines. Technology is used to prime effect throughout, from the MSC for Me touchpoint screens to the corresponding bracelets for hands-free purchases on the go. Kids clubs are similarly high-tech, with a 3D printer, interactive games and virtual reality. 

Cabin Amenities 

Passengers onboard MSC Seaside can pick and choose from an array of cabins and suites, ranging from simple yet sleek interior cabins to spacious condo-styled suites. Families and groups of friends benefit from interconnecting cabins, and a high percentage of accommodation includes a window or balcony. Standard in-room amenities include air conditioning, flat screen televisions, and satellite phones, and all accommodation includes a private bathroom with shower, vanity desk and hairdryer. 

Dining Options

Dining is a highlight onboard any MSC ship, with the cruise line’s Italian origins! On MSC Seaside the traditional Mediterranean cuisine is given a fresh slant with a range of new alternative eateries. This includes the Asian Market Kitchen for sushi and teppanyaki, the Butcher’s Cut steakhouse for American-style grilled meats, the Bistrot La Boheme for French cuisine, and the Ocean Cay for delectably fresh seafood. There are also plenty of bars, pubs, and lounges throughout the ship as well as a buffet restaurant and multiple casual cafes for a quick coffee or snack. 


With seven rotating shows on offer, there’s no need to repeat any performances on a week-long cruise. You might see everything from acrobats and magicians to a Peter Pan-themed musical show during your time on MSC Seaside. The ship’s primary show lounge is called the Metropolitan Theatre, which not only hosts evening entertainment but also serves as a meeting point for daytime excursions and activities. Evening entertainment options extend to trivia, interactive games, dance classes and DJ dance nights as well as karaoke and comedy shows. Bars range from stylish seaside cocktail lounges to a 1950s diner-themed dance club. 

Sports and Wellness

It’s hard not to stay active when you’re spending days at sea, with three public pools and a private one for Yacht Club passengers. Sports and recreation facilities include a Forest AquaVenture play park, complete with ziplines, climbing structures and water slides. There’s also the Gym and Aurea Spa, with Balinese inspired massage treatments, a thermal area with saunas and steam rooms, and state-of-the-art fitness equipment. Don’t out on all the different themed rooms within the spa, featuring everything from a Himalayan salt room to a room filled with snow to cool your body down!
