Msc Cruises: the Msc Seashore’s technical launch

Msc Seashore: this morning the Float Out ceremony was held in the Fincantieri shipyards in Monfalcone, during which the future flagship of Msc Cruises went into the water for the first time.

The ceremony for the technical launch by Fincantieri and Msc Cruises was very exciting to witness after so many months without any type of event being held. The importance of what happened today also lies in its importance as a sign of recovery and a comeback for the world of cruising, demonstrating how companies and shipyards are continuing to work diligently for the construction and launch of new, marvelous ships.

The MSC Seashore is the third of four ships in the Seaside class, following the release of the MSC Seaside and the MSC Seaview, launched in 2017 and 2018 respectively, and the first of two ships in the second generation, the Seaside Evo. There are therefore many differences on board the future Msc flagship. The enthusiasm of the moment was also shared by Pierfrancesco Vago who highlighted how the new unit will be “the biggest and most innovative cruise ship ever built in Italy, equipped with the most recent and advanced environmental technologies available today. It will also be one of the two new ships to be delivered in 2021, confirming therefore our faith in the anticipated long-term growth in the sector – exactly like we have shown with the return to service of our first ship this week and the investments made in our new operative health and safety protocols which are already setting a new standard in the cruise sector.”

Innovation but also efficiency, technology and respect for the environment: these are the keywords of the project which will be completed in June 2021. You can expect more suites, of various types, and an expanded and streamlined Yacht Club. The ship will now be moved to another quay for the fitting out of the internal furnishings and the completion of the ship.

For summer 2021, all three ships in the Seaside class will be setting sail in the Western Mediterranean. These ships were designed for warmer climates, making them perfect for the summer season and for guests who want to soak up the sun and the splendid sea views and offer plenty of opportunities given the large capacity on board.
