MSC Seaview, the second of MSC Cruises’ Seaside-class cruise ships, was floated out of her drydock at Fincantieri’s Monfalcone Shipyard yesterday to begin the the final phase of construction.
She is set to come into service in June 2018, six months after MSC Seaside, and sail her inaugural 2018 summer season in the Mediterranean.
At 323 metres long with a 154,000 gross tonnage, the ship will feature a maximum capacity of 5,179 guests. MSC Seaview will be the third next-generation ship coming into service in just 12 months, following on from MSC Meraviglia (June 2017) and MSC Seaside.
She is part of a ten-year investment plan by MSC that will see the delivery of six new ships by 2020.
