The Grand Voyage for the revolutionary MSC Seaside — MSC Cruises’ next-generation cruise ship debuting in December 2017 — is now on sale. Guests sailing on the trans-Atlantic crossing will be the first to experience the brand-new ship as it departs on a 20-night trans-Atlantic crossing from the Mediterranean to Miami.

Included in the price (which starts at $1,729 per person) guests who book the MSC Seaside Grand Voyage will also receive a beverage package, 30 percent discount on laundry, and three complimentary sightseeing shore excursions (available in Barcelona, Funchal, and Valletta).

In addition, MSC Seaside sailings from Miami to the Caribbean (including a stop at the new private island Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve) are also available for booking, with the first sailing departing on December 23, 2017.
