Bookings for MSC Seaside to open Dec. 15

MSC Seaside - to join MSC Divina in sailing from PortMiami in 2017
MSC Cruises announced sales will open Dec. 15 for its second US year-round ship, MSC Seaside. The vessel will debut in December 2017, and join MSC Divina in sailing from a newly renovated and expanded dedicated berth and terminal at PortMiami.

MSC Seaside will be the first MSC Cruises ship to head directly to the US from the shipyard, and the line's first ship to be christened in the US.

'MSC Cruises is embarking on an ambitious growth plan that includes seven planned newbuilds that will allow us to expand our geographical footprint to new destinations and double our capacity by 2022,' MSC Cruises USA president Rick Sasso said.

MSC Seaside is a new design ship under construction at Fincantieri's Monfalcone yard.
