Fincantieri floats out MSC Seascape, to sail from PortMiami winter 2022/23

MSC Seascape touches the water at Monfalcone shipyard
Fincantieri's Monfalcone shipyard floated out MSC Seascape, to be delivered in November 2022, and US-bound.

The ship will debut with weeklong Caribbean itineraries from PortMiami, MSC Cruises USA President Rubén Rodríguez revealed on board MSC Seashore, which is going to be officially named at Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve today.

Second Seaside EVO ship

MSC Seascape is the second Seaside EVO-class ship, following MSC Seashore.

'We have continued with our ambitious newbuild plans in spite of the pandemic, and today is a double celebration for MSC as our next flagship MSC Seascape is floated out into water simultaneously as her sister ship MSC Seashore is officially named at our very own private island,' said Pierfrancesco Vago, executive chairman, MSC Cruises.   

Details on US deployment to come

Details on MSC Seascape and how its deployment will impact the rest of MSC's US-based operations are to be revealed. But Rodríguez said the ship will bring some new experiences.

On the occasion of the float-out, Fincantieri CEO Giuseppe Bono said: 'The great determination in respecting production commitments and preserving the entire orderbook has become the hallmark of our Group.' 

The 169,400gt MSC Seascape will be able to accommodate up to 5,877 passengers.
