MSC Cruises' newest ship, the 5,877-passenger MSC Seashore, will have a completely redesigned kids area and a new lineup of children's entertainment.
The ship enters service on Aug. 1 for a short season of Mediterranean cruises.
"For MSC Seashore, we have taken family entertainment to a whole new level," said Matteo Mancini, MSC Cruises' children's entertainment manager. "Our goal is to make sure our younger guests have the time of their life during their holiday vacation."
The Seashore's 7,567 square-foot children's area, the largest in the MSC fleet, has a futuristic theme dedicated to space and planetary exploration, spread out across six rooms.
MSC said that teens will have two exclusive rooms on the Seashore. MSC said that the number of teenagers on MSC ships has increased over the last few years and that guests aged 12 to 17 years represent 42% of minors onboard.
Located near the entrance to the kids area, a multifunctional space called the Studio will have a cinema, live TV Studio and a room for gamers with the latest consoles. There will be two evenings dedicated to film nights, one for children and one for teenagers.
The Seashore will have a new concept for teens, the TLS Teens Late Show, where young guests can be part of the cast of a "late show" staged in the Studio, where young guests will be interviewed by the evening's host, talk about their lives and role models, play team games and perform live.
Set to arrive in Miami in November, the MSC Seashore is an evolution of the line's Seaside class, with 65% of its public spaces different than on the other ships in the class. Both the Seashore and its sister ship, the Seascape, feature 11 dining venues, 19 bars and lounges, six swimming pools including an aft infinity pool, a 1,772-foot waterfront promenade, and a glass-floored Bridge of Sighs on Deck 16.
The ships will have the line's largest MSC Yacht Club luxury enclaves in the fleet.
