Cruise Line Marks Exciting Milestone with MSC Seaside Inaugural Season Deal Including up to $600 in Added Value 

Today marks the official one-year countdown to the arrival of MSC Seaside in Miami, and MSC Cruises — the Swiss-based world’s largest privately-owned cruise line and market leader in Europe, South America and South Africa — is marking the occasion with remarkable savings and value-adds for travelers.

MSC Seaside, the most anticipated ship coming to Miami in 2017, is the first of up to three MSC Cruises next-generation “Seaside” class of cruise ships and is set to arrive in the U.S. in December 2017. With an ultramodern and innovative “condo-on-the-beach” design, the ship has been crafted specifically for warm weather, offering sun worshippers one of the highest ratios of outdoor space at sea. She will sail from Miami to the Caribbean year-round and bring guests closer to the sea than ever before with a 360° outdoor promenade including a variety of outdoor restaurants and bars.

On board MSC Seaside, guests will relish a unique vacation experience with world-class entertainment in a 934-seat theater offering four performances each night; inspired gourmet dining at 11 different venues, including a Pan-Asian specialty restaurant created in partnership with celebrity chef Roy Yamaguchi; endless activities for all ages featuring two of the longest zip lines at sea and one of the most interactive waterparks at sea with slideboarding technology; and an enhanced MSC Yacht Club boasting a private sun deck and restaurant, 24-hour butler service and a panoramic top sail lounge.
