A week on MSC Seashore cruising the Western Caribbean

MSC Seashore

sunny 71 °F

Since I had never cruised MSC before - a peer of Carnival, NCL and Royal Caribbean, I decided to give it a go.

MSC Seashore is an evolution of her Seaside-class sister ships, MSC Seaside and MSC Seaview. The ship features 65 percent of her public spaces completely reimagined to enrich the onboard experience and has been extended and enhanced with new entertainment venues, bars and restaurants, and outdoor areas as well as more staterooms and public space.

The first of two enriched Seaside EVO-class ships, MSC Seashore is equipped with the latest advanced environmental technology to increase energy efficiency. In addition, the innovative MSC for Me technology provides an enhanced onboard experience by using digital technology to connect guests, crew, and venues via interactive touchscreens around the ship, interactive stateroom TVs, and the MSC for Me app.

I booked us into a veranda cabin in the Yacht Club - MSC's ship within a ship concept, similar to The Haven on NCL.

"Step into the MSC Yacht Club, an exclusive private sanctuary. Here, you can discover elegance with luxury suites offering a 24/7 butler service. Enjoy curated menus in a private restaurant, and unwind on the secluded pool deck. An elevated experience awaits you on a vacation that’s a step above."

Our first stop was Nassau, where they have finally opened up the new cruise pavilion.

The next day we stopped at Ocean Cay.

Ocean Cay is an island that was man-made created originally for the mining of aragonite sand. The total size of the island is 42 hectares and the original owners also had dredged the area to allow for deep vessels to dock for the exportation of the sand. In 2015, the executive chairman of MSC Cruise line, Pierfrancesco Vago, signed a 100-year lease agreement with the Bahamian government to redevelop the island into a new resort for the cruise line. The cruise line spent $200 million for the total project.

"Cruise to Ocean Cay and experience the only private island marine reserve in The Bahamas. Enjoy nature at its best with seven pristine beaches surrounded by protected marine life. Late-night and overnight stays mean more time to dive into turquoise waters, indulge in a seaside spa treatment, or dance on the sand at sunset."
