MSC Seascape delivered: 21st ship of MSC

MSC has officially taken delivery from Fincantieri, the new flagship MSC Seascape, the 21st ship in the fleet.

MSC Seascape is the largest and most technologically advanced cruise ship ever built in Italy and features major environmental innovations as well; it will accommodate up to 5,632 in 2,270 cabins.

The handover ceremony, which took place at the Fincantieri shipyard in Monfalcone, was attended by many authorities, the Mayor of Monfalcone, the top management of the MSC group and Fincantieri, godmother of the ship Zoe Africa Vago. Intense and moving remembrance was paid by all present to Dr. Giuseppe Bono, for 20 years CEO of Fincantieri, who passed away suddenly last November 8. Pierfrancesco Vago announced that a plaque named after him will be placed on MSC Seascape, the ship that represents the last major project carried out by Dr. Bono together with MSC Cruises.

MSC Seascape will begin its inaugural season in the United States and will be christened on December 7 in New York. She will then move to the Caribbean offering two different weekly itineraries departing from Miami. The first, in the Eastern Caribbean; the second itinerary, in the Western Caribbean.

MSC Cruises has always been committed to building some of the most innovative cruise ships in the world, and this attitude also applies to environmental performance. MSC Seascape has received “Green Plus,” the highest-level additional notation in the field of environmental sustainability issued by the certification society RINA.

MSC Seascape is the second Seaside EVO-class ship, an evolution of the revolutionary Seaside class, and joins MSC Seaside and MSC Seaview, which entered service in 2017 and 2018 respectively, and sister ship MSC Seashore, delivered in 2021. This class of ships is known for its innovative and glamorous design features and was conceived with the aim of bringing guests closer to the sea.

MSC Seascape offers many completely new features, venues and experiences for guests, as 65 percent of public areas have been reinvented to further enhance the guest experience on board. The ship offers 13,000 square meters of outdoor spaces, with a wide selection of outdoor lounge bars and restaurants, swimming pools and areas for relaxing and sunbathing, as well as several vantage points to take in striking views of the sea.
