On Thursday, August 20, MSC Cruises celebrated the “float out” of its new MSC Seashore at the Fincantieri shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy. The mega-ship is the line’s longest vessel at 1,112 feet. The ship has now been moved to a wet dock until her delivery in July 2021.
In Summer 2021, the MSC Seashore will offer itineraries to Genoa, Pompeii, Naples and Messina, all in Italy; Valletta, Malta; Barcelona, Spain; and Marseilles, France.
In November 2021, the ship will reposition to PortMiami, the Cruise Capital of the World, for the winter Caribbean season.
“Congratulations to MSC Cruises and Fincantieri for reaching this tremendous milestone,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez. “We are so proud the MSC Seashore will be joining PortMiami November 2021.”
“What an exciting and inspiring milestone for MSC Cruises to achieve,” said Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners Vice-Chair Rebeca Sosa, who serves as Chairwoman of the Tourism and the Ports Committee. “We are grateful to our partners at MSC for expanding their business at the Cruise Capital of the World.”
MSC currently sails four ships from PortMiami: MSC Seaside, MSC Armonia, MSC Divina, and Meraviglia.
