The Things We Can't Stop Talking About

Floating Beach Condo

As if staying at a beach condo on land was not enough, the “ship that follows the sun” brings you closer to the sea and allows you to enjoy the outdoors more than ever before! There are 14 exclusive aft corner suites, which are architecturally inspired by a beach condo concept, and they have some of the best views of the ocean on the ship (hence, “floating beach condos”). These staterooms are the closest to the panoramic aft elevators, which gives direct access to the top deck (16) and the South Beach Pool down on deck 7 (the “adult pool”), accompanied by the South Beach Bar and Venchi 1878 Gelato & Crêperie.

Most Amazing Boardwalk at Sea

Expect the unexpected because this ship features the most amazing boardwalk at sea with an ocean level promenade (hint: it’s on deck 8) and two unique transparent glass catwalks – talk about a whole new meaning to a “seaside” stroll! With all this outdoor space, you can sunbathe, dine al fresco, participate in a dance or fitness class, and enjoy dedicated MSC Aurea Spa areas while you spend your days at sea… by the sea!

Spacious Terraced Balconies

Having a tough time deciding if a balcony stateroom is right for you? If you plan to book a cruise on MSC Seaside, you’re going to want to splurge! This ship features a new balcony design in which a portion of your balcony is uncovered. Plus, the balcony has grass-like turf with personal sunbeds. This means you are able to unwind and relax in the sunshine on your own private terrace, over looking the promenade and with spectacular sea views! There are a total of 44 of these one-of-a-kind balcony suites and can be found on deck 9, available only with the Aurea Experience.
