MSC Cruises has posted a new video just incase you fancy taking a look at the recent float out ceremony and some views of the new class ship at the shipyard.

We really enjoy videos like this as it gets us excited on what’s to come from a new cruise ship. The MSC Seaside celebrated its traditional float out ceremony which Cruise Hive previously reported on last week. At the Fincantieri shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy the ships dry dock was filled with water and the ship was floated out to a wet dock. At the wet dock the final phase will begin including fitting out all the interior spaces.

There are still many more milestones to come including sea trials and fitting out phase but it will all be completed by December 2017. The MSC Seaside will be 160,000 gross tons and carry 5,179 guests from Port Miami, Florida. The vessel will help expand the cruse line in the United States market. A second ship of the same class named MSC Seaview will enter service in Spring 2018.
