In six months’ time, a new MSC Cruises cruise ship will depart from the cruise capital of the world, Port Miami.
MSC Seashore will be the line’s newest and most innovative cruise ship, sailing week-long cruises from Miami to the Bahamas and the Caribbean. The ship will also visit the cruise line’s newest private island in the Bahamas, Ocean Cay. Here are six MSC Seashore cruise highlights that we look forward to the most.
Cruises to MSC Cruises’ award-winning private island
The MSC Seashore experience is just the beginning when you cruise to Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve, MSC Cruises’ new private island in the Bahamas, named Best New Cruise Destination. Surrounded by 64 square kilometers of marine reserve, Ocean Cay offers guests the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to enjoy the island’s natural beauty, discover local marine life and soak in the spirit of the Bahamas.
With MSC Seashore docking on the island from early morning to evening – and in some cases overnight – MSC Cruises guests can enjoy a full day of two miles of pristine, white-sand beaches and a variety of ocean discovery activities, including Stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, exhilarating wave runner rides and more.
Most of the outdoor space on any MSC ship in the United States
As a further development of its popular sister ship MSC Seaside, the MSC Seashore has been reinterpreted, with 65 percent of the ship being completely redesigned. Specifically designed for warmer climates, guests can take advantage of nearly 140,000 square feet of outdoor space, including redesigned outdoor venues and bars, new outdoor dining areas, and much more.
Those looking for a haven can relax with a cocktail along the ship’s waterfront, which stretches for 1,700 feet. Guests who book the Aurea experience also have access to a new, elegant bar in the Top 19 Solarium with spacious lounge areas and outdoor seating.
More daring guests can cross the glass-bottomed Bridge of Sighs, located 72 feet above the infinity pool overlooking the stern of the ship.
New infinity pool and jacuzzi overlooking the ocean
New to the MSC Seashore are the ship’s infinity pool and whirlpools, which offer guests an unrestricted sea view. The infinity pool is located at the back of the ship and now includes both shallow and deep areas with several lounge chairs right in the pool for a picturesque relaxation experience.
The infinity whirlpools are two of the 15 on board whirlpools, which are located on both sides of the ship and near the sea on deck 8 and each offer 20 seats with sea views for guests.
Brand new restaurants on board
In the five specialty restaurants of MSC Seashore in the Chef’s Court, guests can pamper their palates with a range of internationally inspired dishes in brand new restaurants and well-known concepts.
The Kaito Sushi Bar has a moving sushi conveyor belt
First, MSC Cruises will be bringing Mexican and Latin American dishes into HOLA! Tacos & Cantina offers street food specialties and an extensive list of 16 tequilas and 9 mezcals in a lively, interactive setting. For breakfast, guests can dip into a breakfast nacho tray and fried egg chilaquiles. For lunch and dinner, the menu offers tasty dishes such as chicken empanadas, duck tentaquitos, chipotle shrimp taco, chiles rellenos and much more. The food is held together by a sweet end of homemade churros, dulce de leche flan, or Mexican chocolate cake, to name a few.
New outdoor dining areas
On a ship that has a connection with nature, it’s only natural to extend the dining experience on deck closer to the ocean. At MSC Seashore’s Butcher’s Cut Steakhouse, guests can enjoy their meal al fresco with ocean views from Deck 8. Dry-aged tomahawk for two and filet mignon with lamb chops, bison and lump crab or lobster tail to add surf to the lawn. Guests can dig into delicious, premium slices under the cool ocean breeze.
The largest MSC Yacht Club of all MSC Cruises ships
The MSC Yacht Club on MSC Seashore extends over four decks with incomparable sea views and is the largest and most luxurious in the MSC Cruises fleet. It has nearly 32,292 square feet dedicated to the ship within a ship. Yacht Club guests receive private amenities – including a private pool, restaurant, and lounge – as well as 24-hour butler service with selection and entertainment throughout the ship.
The MSC Seashore’s has refined surfaces and an elegant design. The entrance includes an onyx wall with three decks and high backlighting as well as the typical Swarovski crystal stairs from MSC Cruises. The private pool deck of the Yacht Club celebrates nature with over 21,000 square meters and has a spacious pool, a panorama and a standard whirlpool.
MSC Seashore will sail its first cruise from Miami on November 20, 2021. The ship will operate various routes in the Caribbean, with some alternating cruises visiting the Eastern and Western Caribbean.
