- A high -tech, glitzy cruise became operational in the Caribbean region.
- The cruise ship named MSC Seaside made its debut with a grand naming ceremony in December.
A brand new cruise ship with over the top features has made its way into the cruise ship circuit. The ship named MSC Seaside was formally inducted when it set sails for its maiden Caribbean voyage in December to Miami and made things official with a star-studded naming ceremony at Port Miami on December 21. The massive ship will be stationed in Miami and make stops in places like Jamaica, Mexico, Cayman Islands and the Bahamas in its weeklong trips. It has high-tech construction features which stand out. For instance, it has…
1. A celebrity godmother
Cruise ships are often referred to as “Godmothers”. Speaking of Godmothers, what better way to travel the world than have a celebrity Godmother like Sophia Loren on your cruise ship. The MSC Seaside just did that!
2. The widest boardwalk at sea
Cruise ships are designed to bring passengers closer to the sea. The main agenda here is to give a wide boardwalk – spacious enough to give you a feel of the open water. The MSC Seaside fulfils the unachievable here with the widest see-through broadwalk seen in the history of cruise ship designs.
3. A 131-foot-high glass-floored bridge
Indeed, the “Bridge of Sighs” allows passengers who dare to walk along a glass-floored bridge that’s just over 131 feet high.
4. A celebrity masterchef’s culinary touch
None other than the famous chef Roy Yamaguchi of Bravo’s Top Chef Masters fame adorns the MSC Seaside’s Kitchen. It’s a different experience altogether having a masterchef onboard to give you a taste of his culinary extravaganza
5. The longest ziplines at sea
Yes, you read that right. This ship has a pair of ziplines extending across the top of the boat’s open-air deck and they currently stand as the longest ziplines on any boat.
6. A crazy water park right on the ship
The MSC Seaside has gone overboard with their water play options. So much so that they have built a 525-foot long dueling water slides enabled amusement park on the ship.
7. Exhaustive family-friendly options
With the largest kid’s area in the history of cruise ships, the MSC Seaside takes care of family friendly recreational options. The kid’s area has LEGO Room, VR gaming and 3D printing which makes it an exciting section for kids of all age. Moreover, a special wristband tracking device is also available for the children which makes the parents job easier.
8. Cutting-edge entertainment options
Apart from the regular cruise entertainment options like theatre and radio, the MSC Seaside is packed with cutting-edge facilities like a 2 lane bowling alley, a formula one racing car simulator, 5D cinema amongst others.
9. A paperless fully functional digital system
The MSC Seaside is empowered with high-tech digital facilities which eliminates the use of paper. Screens are lit up all through the ships making each and every facility available to them instantly. From checking photos to booking for a show or spa treatment – all can be done with a swipe on the screen. Instant housekeeping alert system is in place so that rooms can be cleaned when the guests exit.
Digital innovations like robots for entertainment and hologram performances are next in line, in the near future.
