MSC Cruises has revealed stunning renderings of their newest ship, the MSC Seashore.
The stylish ship, which is due to launch in August 2021, has plenty of outdoor spaces and designed for cruisers to spend their time by the pool.
She will be the longest ship in the fleet and the largest ship built in Italy. When she launches, she will be offering Mediterranean cruises, sailing to Malta, Spain, France and Italy.
In November 2021, she will then be transferred to Miami sailing on weeklong itineraries to the Eastern and Western Caribbean. The MSC Seashore will also call at Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve, the line’s private island.
Here’s a look at what you’ll find on the ship.
New pool design
There will be six pools offering everything from thrills and adventure for younger guests through to stylish poolside relaxation for those looking to unwind on board.
The stunning aft pool has been redesigned to create an Infinity Pool, which now extends right up to the very end of the aft, with a glass wall offering uninterrupted views of the ocean. This pool is one of the largest infinity pools at sea, offering a variety of different depths as well as sunbeds sunken in the water. As the pool is close to the water at deck 8, this is the perfect spot to connect with the sea and take in spectacular views from sunrise to sunset.
MSC Seashore introduces two new infinity whirlpool baths — one on each side of the outdoor promenade of Deck 8 — with 20 sea-facing seats so guests can treat themselves to the ultimate relaxation spot with the soothing water jets while enjoying striking sea views.
On Deck 18, the main pool – Long Island Pool offers two different depths so that guests can choose to swim or simply stand and hang-out in the water. The newly designed area also includes a 360-degree water fountain island in the centre as well as a new lounge space within the pool. In order to enhance this part of the ship further, Long Island Pool, is now connected with the aquapark with a Pirate Cove theme to create an extensive water area. The kids’ clubs are also located on deck 18, making this the go-to deck for all the family.
Whilst this ship is designed for warmer weather, the Jungle Pool features a larger magrodome that can be closed to create an indoor pool area when needed.
Outdoor dining and drinking
There will be a new location for the Chef’s Court that houses the five specialty restaurants, which will be moved to Deck 8. This new positioning of the specialty restaurants allows for the restaurants to have an improved sea view and MSC Cruises’ signature steakhouse, Butcher’s Cut, will offer for the first-time outdoor seating and al fresco dining on the iconic waterfront promenade.
MSC Seashore’s expansive buffet now includes a new outdoor aft dining area as well as bar – the Sky Bar, which enables guests to dine outdoors.
And Aurea guests can enjoy the exclusive Top 19 Solarium with its chic outdoor lounge area and bar.
Biggest and most luxurious MSC Yacht Club
Located on the coveted foredecks on the ships, spanning four decks and providing sweeping sea views the MSC Yacht Club on MSC Seashore will become the largest and most luxurious in MSC Cruises’ fleet.
The entrance to the MSC Yacht Club is even more impressive and glamourous, with a three-deck 46 sqm back-lit Onyx wall and MSC Cruises’ signature sparkling Swarovski staircases, connecting four decks making guests feel like a true VIP when they enter.
For meals, the Top Sail Lounge and dine have beautiful sea views with an outdoor area connected to the lounge, on top of the bridge.
An enhanced and extended pool area and sundeck features a larger private pool and a new panoramic whirlpool with eight seats and individual jets plus a standard whirlpool.
Deluxe accommodations in the MSC Yacht Club have also been increased, now featuring 131 suites across five categories, including the traditional interior, deluxe and royal suites as well as 41 newly introduced deluxe grand suites, with extra space and a walk-in closet, and two brand new Owner’s Suites.
The Owner’s Suites are largest suites on the ship featuring an expansive private balcony with whirlpool and outdoor living area, panoramic glass wall for stunning sea views, and a separate dining and living room area.
