Watch Water Fill Up MSC Seaview Construction Dock

If you didn’t know already the second MSC Seaside vessel was floated out yesterday at the Monfalcone Fincantieri shipyard in Italy.

We thought you might like some pretty impressive footage of MSC Seaview touching water for the very first time. As seen in the footage below the huge cruise ship can be seen on water as it flows into the construction dock.

Once the dock was filled full of water the ship was floated out with tugs and moved to a wet dock where the final stages of construction will begin.

The external part of the ship is complete and the focus will shift to putting together all the interior spaces. Thousands of workers and contractors will begin fitting out all the public spaces including bars and restaurants. Furnishings and decor will start to come together and the ship will begin to take shape inside.

MSC Seaview will hold 4,134 passengers based on double occupancy, with 2,066 staterooms, 76% of which will have an ocean view or balcony. Some of the balconies will be terraced with both sun-soaked and covered areas, so guests can sun bathe and relax from the privacy of their own staterooms. The ship will arrive in June 2018 with an inaugural season in the Mediterranean.
