The MSC Seascape is a beautiful new addition to the MSC fleet. Currently sailing the Caribbean out of Miami, this ship offers the same stunning views, elegant common areas, and wonderful service we’ve come to expect from MSC Cruises.

If you’re a fan of the MSC Seashore, you’re going to love the MSC Seascape. As its sister ship, the Seascape is strikingly similar in both design and feel – bringing guests closer to the sea than ever before.

Cruise Cabins

The MSC Seascape offers a variety of cabin types to meet your needs and preferences. Some cabins, like Yacht Club and Aurea Suites, include special amenities and onboard experiences for a premium price.

The Deluxe Balcony Suite measures about 180 ft2 and includes a balcony. Inside, you’ll find a king bed and a sofa that converts into a sleeping space for the kids. This room is a cozy but solid option for families, especially considering it comes at a good price. Here are a few photos:

If you’re looking for something a little larger, the Premium Suite with Whirlpool may be for you. This cabin type measures in at about 300 ft2 and boasts a whirlpool on your balcony. It also includes the Aurea Experience – which includes things like any time dining, priority boarding, and access to the Aurea Solarium.

Of course, the Yacht Club cabins are some of my personal favorites. Although they cost a bit more, they come with all the benefits of the Yacht Club – including access to exclusive areas like the Yacht Club pool, the Yacht Club Dining Room, Top Sail Lounge, a personal butler, and more.

I love the Yacht Club Deluxe Grand Suites. For a relatively minor price difference, these rooms offer considerably more space than the YC Deluxe Suites, making them perfect for our family of four. Not every ship with Yacht Club offers these rooms. Thankfully, they are available on the MSC Seascape.

MSC Seascape Bars & Lounges

With 20 bars and lounges scattered throughout the ship, there is always something happening on the MSC Seascape. Here are a few of my favorite spots.

Atrium and Champagne Bar

Like other ships of the Seaside Class, the MSC Seascape features a massive open area in the center of the ship. The Atrium spans several decks and boasts a three-tiered entertainment stage as its centerpiece.

The crystal staircases surrounding the Atrium are a great spot to snap some photos. Personally, Greg and I love this spot for live music in the evenings. It also serves as a gathering point for many activities and excursions during the day.

The Atrium is surrounded by several bars and lounges on the each deck, allowing you to enjoy the entertainment from a spot of your choosing. One of my personal favorites is the Champagne Bar. It provides a comfortable yet elegant setting to cap off any evening.

Times Square

Times Square is another lively and interesting area of the ship. Located forward of the Atrium, you’ll find more live music, bars, and even some shopping here.

The casino and casino bar are also located near this area of the ship.

After listening to dueling pianos or winning a few bucks at the blackjack tables, head over to Venchi for a chocolate cocktail or some delicious gelato – both of which are available for purchase.

Marina Bar

If you’re a pool person, you’ll want to get familiar with the Marina Bar. This spacious bar is located next to the main pool and is sure to be serving your favorite drinks while at sea!

Top Sail Lounge (Yacht Club Only)

The Top Sail Lounge is one of my favorite places to relax on the ship. I stop by every morning to grab a latte, come back for a pre-dinner drink, and usually finish my day here with an Aperol Spritz for a nightcap.

Located in the front of the ship, the large windows offer some of the best views available onboard. I absolutely adore the two-story design which leaves the lounge open to the Yacht Club Dining room above. This means diners can enjoy the live music playing in the lounge during their dinner.

MSC Seascape Restaurants & Dining

Speaking of dining, there is no lack of options on the MSC Seascape. The ship features a total of 11 dining areas – including 4 main dining halls and 1 buffet.

Marketplace Buffet typically offers more casual selections and some killer pizza. The main dining rooms prepare more elegant plates, with at least one dining room open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

As I mentioned earlier, Yacht Club guests can enjoy the views from the Yacht Club Dining Room – located directly above the Top Sail Lounge.

Although meals in the main dining halls are included with your cruise, guests can also enjoy several specialty restaurants for an additional charge. Our family typically eats at least one meal at a specialty restaurant, although we have purchased up to three meals during longer cruises.

Specialty dining options on the MSC Seascape include Butcher’s Cut Steakhouse, Ocean Cay, Hola! Tacos & Cantina, and Kaito Teppanyaki. Additionally, this ship features one of my favorite dining experiences – the Kaito Sushi Bar. This unique spot is both fun and delicious, allowing diners to choose their sushi rolls as they slowly pass by on a moving belt. Yummy!

Pools & Entertainment

The MSC Seascape boasts 13 pool and “water features” that can be found around the ship. Additionally, there are several other activites and entertainment options for guests to enjoy.

Marina Pool

The Marina Pool is the ship’s main pool area and the spot to be during days at sea. The entertainment team keeps things lively during the day with contests, parties, bingo, and more. During some evenings, you can enjoy a movie under the stars on the the giant video screen.

Jungle Pool

Want to take a dip during the evening or when it is raining outside? Check out the Jungle pool! This pool has a retractable roof that is perfect for any cool or rainy days.

Aqua Park

The Pirates Cove Aqua Park is another fun way to spend the day. This area sports a giant splash pad, some waterslides, and a ton of water-based fun!

Infinity Pool

Need a break from the kids? Watch the ship’s wake slowly fade away as you bathe in the serene waters of the adults-only Infinity Pool.

Located in the far aft of the ship, this is truly one of the most beautiful and peaceful spots on the MSC Seascape.

Bridge of Sighs

Sitting high above the Infinity Pool is the spectacular Bridge of Sighs. This glass bridge offers unobstructed views of the surrounding waters, making it a wonderful place for romantic strolls and dramatic selfies.

Other Entertainment Options

Of course, pools and bars aren’t the only things the MSC Seascape has to offer. This ship also features a number of other entertainment areas – including two theatres, a VR flight simulator, an MSC Formula Racer, and more!

The MSC Seascape also boasts the first robotic coaster ride at sea. The Robotron is a robotic arm coaster that flies, flips, and spins guests over 175 feet above the sea. If you’re a coaster lover, you should definitely check it out!

Kids Club & Teen Areas

One of the first things I came to love about MSC was their Kids Club. As their fleet has grown, MSC’s kids and teen facilities have gotten even better.

Honestly, their kids programming and entertainment continues to be absolutely fabulous. Even better, kids under 18 sail for free on many itineraries.

MSC Seascape: Final Thoughts

With the MSC Seascape, MSC has once again exceeded my expectations. The ship is gorgeous, the food is good, and the service is spectacular – all at a price that is hard to beat.

If you’re seeking a Caribbean getaway, I wouldn’t hesitate to book a trip on the MSC Seascape. In fact, I highly recommend it!
