MSC Seaside also boasts expanded internationally-inspired dining, including a partnership with pan-Asian pioneer Roy Yamaguchi who created the Asian Market Kitchen on board. Thrilling activities on board, ensuring that cruisers of all ages are always entertained, include a multi-story aqua park with 4 water slides; two of the longest zip lines at sea; full-size bowling lanes; an F1 simulator; and full-scale theatrical productions.
