As much as 65% of public areas on MSC Cruises new flagship MSC Seashore have been “re-imagined” from its predecessor.
The ship, which enters service on July 31, has been fully redesigned as an evolution of the original Seaside prototype.
It has been designed to include more options for eating and drinking with new bars and restaurants as well as outdoor venues and seating.
Features include 18 bars and lounges, including 12 indoor and six outdoor venues, five specialty restaurants and four main dining rooms.
A new location for the Chef’s Court is introduced on Deck 8, including five specialty restaurants.
These include a Latin America and Mexican-style cantina, an American steak house with a new al fresco dining area, a sushi bar with conveyor belt, the largest teppanyaki venue in the fleet and a seafood restaurant.
Among the bars and lounges is a new walk-though wine cellar, piano lounge and Chef’s Court cocktail bar.
Food and beverage vice president Jacques Van Staden said: “We have taken the dining experience on MSC Seashore to the next level with carefully considered new options, both outdoors and in, that are fit for this spectacular flagship vessel.
“The goal of our talented in-house culinary team is to create something for every palate and preference, providing a diverse array of outstanding international culinary experiences.
“We are sure that the new dining concepts and incredible array of restaurants and bars will make for a truly memorable gastronomic experience for MSC Seashore guests.”
