MSC Seascape Information
MSC Seascape is the second of MSC Cruises’ Seaside EVO-class ships, and is presently being built at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy. She will be launched in November 2021.
When she comes, the ship will become MSC Cruises’ new flagship, and it will be the fourth ship of the line’s popular Seaside class. MSC Seascape, as a Seaside EVO-class ship, marks a further development of a much-loved class.

Aft-facing suites, a 1,770-foot-long waterfront promenade, and the stunning glass-floored Bridge of Sighs on deck 16 are among the class’s innovations.
The bulk of MSC Seascape’s public areas have been fully redesigned, elevating the passenger experience and providing wonderful venues and spots to interact with the sea, including a gorgeous aft infinity pool with breathtaking ocean views.
Environmental modifications on the Seaside EVO boats include new technology that cut nitrogen oxide emissions by up to 90% and sulphur oxide emissions by up to 98 percent. An underwater radiated noise control system would limit the possible impact on marine organisms, further safeguarding the sensitive areas visited by the ships.
More MSC Ships are now accepting reservations.
In addition to MSC Seascape’s inaugural itinerary, reservations for two more MSC Cruises ships sailing out of the United States and into the Caribbean next winter are now available.

MSC Divina will call PortMiami home and offer 3- and 4-night Bahamas cruises, as well as 7-night cruises to Belize, Honduras, and Mexico, and lengthier 10-night cruises to Jamaica, Colombia, Panama, and Costa Rica.
Meanwhile, starting in October 2022, MSC Meraviglia will continue to call Port Canaveral home, providing 7-night voyages to Mexico’s Cozumel and Costa Maya, Belize, and Ocean Cay, as well as shorter mini-cruises to The Bahamas that all feature the MSC Marine Reserve at Ocean Cay.
MSC Meraviglia will sail from Port Canaveral during the winter season of 2021, but will spend the summer season in the Mediterranean, where she will offer a variety of customizable 7-night itineraries visiting that magnificent area. Destinations such as Cannes, Barcelona, Genoa, and Rome will be among the ports of call.
MSC Merviglia is set to embark on a 22-night Grand Voyage from Rome on September 21, 2022, before returning to Port Canaveral on October 13 to begin her winter season.
