About MSC Cruises
MSC Cruises is a private Italian cruise line and dominates the European and South American cruise market. The Italian flair and an elegant design characterize the ships. The cruise line offers a good value for money and the voyages are recommended to passengers of all ages. The average age of the passengers varies related to the destination and time of travel. During the summer many families spend their holiday on a Mediterranean cruise. In the off season there are less children aboard. The guests onboard are international and speaking English is an advantage. MSC is going to become the first ever global cruise company with climate-neutral ship operations. All co2 emissions of the fleet will be compensed with projects that count on Blue Carbon Credits.
MSC Seashore is the first ship of the new developed Seaside EVO class. Due to similar onboard facilities like on MSC Seaview und MSC Seaside guests recognize easily that this new ship class is based on the Seaside class. Inspired by the New York spirit you can find several characteristics: for example a 4m high copy of the Statue of Liberty or a shopping area called Times Square. In this area you can also find a 8.5m high LED-wall which shows the skyline of Manhattan. The cruise line revised the restaurant concept and added a new two-storey show lounge. In addition, the water park is bigger and with some interactive features. Children will be happy about the enlarged Kids Club. With a big variety of onboard facilites and spacious outside areas the 339-metre long ship fits well to fine weather destinations.

Tacos & Cantina', the Steakhouse 'Butchers Cut', the running Sushi restaurant 'Kaito Sushi Bar', the Teppanyaki highlight 'Kaito Teppanyaki' and the fish restaurant 'Ocean Cay'.
