MSC Seaside is a Seaside-class cruise ship currently owned and operated by MSC Cruises. As the lead vessel of the Seaside class, she lends her name to the company’s Seaside class. At 153,516 GT, she would become the largest cruise ship ever to be constructed by Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri, and the 14th largest cruise ship in the world.

MSC Seaside rewrites the rule book of cruise ship design, combining indoor and outdoor areas to connect you with the sea like never before. Located as low as Deck 8 is a unique seafront promenade lined with places to eat, drink, shop, swim and sunbathe. And you can enjoy superb views from our two glass-floor catwalks and panoramic elevators.

To get even closer to the sea while soaking up the sun, guests can also stretch out by the elegant South Beach Pool the aft of the ship on deck 7. And for more amazing views, take a ride in the two panoramic lifts connecting it to the top deck.
Each of the MSC Seaside cruise ship deck plans is conveniently combined with a legend (showing cabin codes) and a detailed review of all the deck’s venues and passenger-accessible indoor and outdoor areas. A separate link provides extensive information on MSC Seaside staterooms (cabins and suites), including photos, cabin plans, and amenities by room type and category.

MSC Seaside (2017-built) is the first of three identical-class, revolutionary new design and largest MSC cruise ships by the company’s “Seaside project”. Its sister is MSC Seaview (2018). Next in line are all four vessels (pax capacity 4,500, tonnage 167,600 GT) by the company’s “Vista project” (which are still unnamed, except MSC Meraviglia).

The MSC Seaside cruise ship deck plan shows 2066 staterooms for 4134 passengers (max capacity is 5336 guests), served by 1413 crew/staff (759 crew cabins). The boat has 19 decks, of which 16 are passenger-accessible and 10 with cabins.

MSC Seaside decks are named after famous resort beaches.
