MSC Seaside, the most anticipated ship coming to Miami in 2017, is the first of up to three MSC Cruises next-generation “Seaside” class of cruise ships and is set to arrive in the U.S. in December 2017. With an ultramodern and innovative “condo-on-the-beach” design, the ship has been crafted specifically for warm weather, offering sun worshippers one of the highest ratios of outdoor space at sea. She will sail from Miami to the Caribbean year-round and bring guests closer to the sea than ever before with a 360° outdoor promenade including a variety of outdoor restaurants and bars.
