  3. MSC Seaside
Wanted to to try a larger ship and this one was beautiful, a lot of mirrors, chrome and glitz. We normally do not get off the ship, we like to sit around the pool and enjoy the ship, however, we noticed on port days, there were no activities nor any music around the pool. Our handicap accessible cabin was comfortable. We were in an inside cabin/midship/15th deck/Fantastica Experience. Loved sitting at the atrium bar people watching. Once the bar servers knew you, they kept the drinks coming. (We did tip every time we got drinks, which helped for quick service) The only show we saw was Starwalker. The others did not appeal to us. Food on the buffet was always hot and plentiful. Embarkation was quick and easy as we have noticed since hubby is in a mobility scooter. We checked both pieces of our luggage and it was at our door at 2pm, which is the time everyone was allowed to go to their cabins. We did early debarkation (7:30am) and took our luggage with us. Going through the terminal was a breeze. Would we do Seaside again...probably not....ship too large for us and the age group seemed to be 30's-40's. We are looking into doing a smaller MSC ship.

Cabin Review

Fantastica Inside Stateroom
Cabin I2
This was a handicapped accessible room and we had plenty of room to get around in our mobility scooter. We had our beds separated and still had plenty of room. Bathrooms had roll in shower and plenty of room. Closets had two rods to hang shirts.....no place to hang dresses on pants on hanger.
