MSC Cruises’ new­est, most ad­vanced cruise ship, MSC Sea­side, is the first in a brand-new class of ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy ship from this Ital­ian fam­i­ly­owned ship­ping and cruise line. The rad­i­cal new pro­to­type design of her su­per­struc­ture is in­tended to cre­ate an at­mos­phere rem­i­nis­cent of the fa­mous Mi­ami Beach con­dos – quite fit­ting as MSC Sea­side is based year-round in Mi­ami. Twin tow­ers rise above a large pool deck that is just a few floors above the wa­ter­line and is part of a low-level prom­e­nade that en­cir­cles the ship. Two glass el­e­va­tors pro­vide ac­cess be­tween that Deck 7 area and the other main ‘Aqua Park’ pool area way up on Deck 16. Two glass-floored cat­walks and a 40m-high ‘Bridge of Sighs’ give guests a truly breath­tak­ing view of the ocean. A wide prom­e­nade lined with bars and restau­rants en­cir­cles Deck 8, which is de­signed to put peo­ple closer to the sea. MSC Sea­side of­fers the brand’s dis­tinc­tive en­ter­tain­ment pro­gram with in­no­va­tive shows with high pro­duc­tion val­ues, as well as a host of new in­ter­na­tional din­ing con­cepts, in­clud­ing the sig­na­ture Asian Mar­ket Kitchen by renowned Pan-Asian chef Roy Ya­m­aguchi. Young fam­i­lies can en­joy the Lego-themed play ar­eas for kids up to 12 and teens can knock them­selves out on an ar­ray of elec­tronic and ar­cade-style games. No new MSC ves­sel would be com­plete with­out the ex­clu­sive MSC Yacht Club, which is el­e­vated to a whole new level on the Sea­side. MSC Sea­side of­fers seven- and 14-night itin­er­ar­ies of the Caribbean from Mi­ami. msc­cruises.com.au
