Among our favourite ships here at Odyssean Travel, the Seaside is possibly the best value in the Caribbean
Caribbean and Florida
Built specifically in recognition of its home port of Miami, the flagship Seaside Class vessel has an aft which strongly resembles an art deco hotel so common to South Beach. Featuring modern classics from MSC such as the MSC Yacht Club and, of course, a generous amount of Swarovski crystal staircases!
A few of our team here at Odyssean Travel sailed the inaugural sailing in 2017 and our Chief Fun Officer, Holly actually returned for a week on board in 2018. She recounts, highlights include dining and, of course, the itinerary, but that she was really impressed with the performance shows.
MSC boasts a rather simple set of guidelines for their sailings, with casual dress being the bulk of your necessary packing. Expect 1-2 formal "Gala" nights, with 2 being more for week-long itineraries. You'll likely be most comfortable with some casual dress for the day, including flip-flops for the pool decks, but something closer to country club casual for evenings. Themed nights are frequent and fun! Floral patterns or various colour-themed events occur on many sailings, think 70s or White Party! As with many modern cruise lines, expect to keep the swim wear out of the dining rooms and that you'll need footwear and a top for anything off the pool deck.
For most itineraries, expect a daily rate of US$12.50 per person for those 12 and over, US$6.25 for children 2 and up. Fleetwide, MSC does not charge a service fee for infants under the age of 2. Age is typically measured from the time of final disembarkation. Select itineraries, including certain MSC Grand Voyages or MSC World Cruises, in particular, Southbound itineraries, feature a daily rate in euros of €10 per person for guests 12 and up, €5 per person for children 2 and up.
