Description

A new revolutionary prototype created for MSC Cruises, the MSC Seaside stands out for its external look that is totally new in the cruise ship field. The smokestack is moved to the center of the ship, leaving the entire back of the ship for water activities.
As well, the vertical stern is topped by a splendid glass panoramic walkway and has two panoramic elevators. Thanks to the ample open air walkway on the deck of the public areas it is one of the best ships for really living the sea experience.

Nave all'altezza!

I liked

commento

I Caraibi sono stati suggestivi e la MSC Seaside è stata una nave pienamente all'altezza del magnifico itinerario. Una nave grande, elegante e soprattutto molto pulita. Cibo raffinato e non da mensa, buffet ben organizzati e non caotici.

Bellissima crociera su Msc Seaside

I liked

Nave innovativa, itinerario

I didn't like

Un pò di confusione al buffet a pranzo

commento

Msc Seaside mi è piaciuta molto, finalmente una nave grande e moderna anche per Msc. Ci sono dei momenti di confuasione e di assembramento ma tutto sommato ci sono anche tanti angoli dove riservarsi privacy e tranquillità. Cabina con balcone ampia e pulita, comoda anche con due bambini. Cucina buona, non eccellente ma niente male. Non usiamo intrattenimento adulti, ma i bambini sono stati benissimo al club. Buona anche l'organizzazione dei trasferimenti da e per la nave. Piaciuta!

Firstly, their food is very delicious, it’s been long i ate such kind of delicacies. Their gym and spa is also highly-professional. Although a few of their staff had issues with relating properly, their customer service too appears to be slightly above average. Overall, it was a good experience with them.

Although, this is a new ship, my experience while on cruise with it was exceptionally extraordinary. Although there were a few issues while on board, all of them were minors. All in all, it was a superb experience, and i surely should check in again in the nearest future.

Most interesting thing was that I just paid for a ticket to “transport my body "from one seashore shore to another, but had no idea how much I would end up getting for free? There were many islands I just read about in books; many mountains that happened at the lakeside. I had always wished you could visit these places, but it still appeared so expensive, yet by just paying for that single ticket, here i enjoyed the beautiful sights and wondered that the sea hosts.

My daughter and I first time on cruise. She wanted to do something special for her 16th birthday so we did. It was wonderful to see her relaxing and enjoying herself and it felt good myself. Our next cruise next year will be on same ship. We had an awesome experience and loved cruise. Great entertainment on ship. Thank you for helping make my daughters 16th Birthday a memorial one!

crociera inaugurale

I liked

una nave davvero spaziosa, piena di ambienti all'aperto

I didn't like

semplicemente essendo inaugurale tante cose non erano al top

commento

nave fatta alla sua prima partenza e molte cose non erano al top come il ristorante serale dove aspettavamo i piatti anche 2 ore, entravamo alle 21 e uscivamo alle 23e30 circa... la nave avendola fatta a dicembre non abbiamo potuto usufruire dei tantissimi ambienti all'aperto che ai caraibi si sfrutterebbero tantissimo.. L a SPA è davvero bellissima

MSC Seaside is an amazing ship. We spent a wonderful week in the Caribbean, with a very well organized itinerary. Good board service, many services available to guests and excellent cuisine, especially at the self-service. Definitely one of the most beautiful ships of MSC Cruises.

Crowded, some lounges are small

commento

Wanted to try a big cruiseship, named to be beautiful, modern and revolutionary. Well, of course it's a beautiful vessel, particular design, nice places to spend the day outside. Food was not so good as I thought even if not bad. Many many people made some ambience crowded. An experience I'm happy to have done but probably Msc won't be my next first choice.

I liked

Qualche ambiente è piccolo per la mole di passeggeri

commento

Nave bella ed elegante con servizio buono e tante attrazioni. Itinerario studiato bene con soste sempre abbastanza lunghe. Ottimo il buffet e la pizza, anche se sempre affollato. Meno buona la cucina dei ristoranti principali, semplice e molto scontata. Nel complesso una buona esperienza, la nave la consiglio.

commento

Attratti da questo nuovo progetto Msc abbiamo voluto provarlo al caldo, nei meravigliosi Caraibi. Nave veramente bella, elegante, con grande offerta di intrattenimento, di locali, di ristoranti. Tutto molto buono anche nell'organizzazione, sinceramente non abbiamo avuto problemi. Nave da provare, un altro mondo rispetto alle più anziane della flotta.
