Geneva, Switzerland – January 18, 2022– MSC Cruises has opened sales for MSC Seascape, which is currently under construction at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy and will become the line’s second Seaside EVO class ship upon delivery in late November. The ship will sail from Miami starting December 2022. Her inaugural season in the Caribbean will further enrich MSC Cruises’ strong offering for guests in the popular cruise region.

MSC Seascape and her sister ships are specifically designed for Caribbean cruising.
Our guests love the ships’ unique mix of cutting-edge technology and outdoor space that gets them closer to the sea, and they tell us MSC Seashore was the best yet when she arrived late last year. Our newest ship will offer even more to love on board and along the way. Every itinerary calls at Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve to give our guests the chance to soak up the natural beauty of the Bahamas and learn about our efforts to conserve and rebuild the surrounding ecosystem.”
