MSC Seaside is the first of the two cruise vessels ordered by Switzerland’s MSC Cruises from Fincantieri.
With a gross tonnage of 154,000 tons, the ship is 323 meters long and 41 meters wide. It will be able to carry 5,179 passengers and 1,413 crewmembers.
MSC Seaside is expected to be delivered to its owner in the second half of this year.
Its sister ship, MSC Seaview, is slated for delivery in June 2018, according to data provided by VesselsValue.
The newbuildings are part of MSC Cruises’ EUR 9 billion (around USD 9.6 billion) plan which includes the construction of eleven next-generation ships expected to enter service between 2017 and 2026.
