Breathtaking performances! While Las Vegas is renowned for its shows, the SEASIDE holds its own with its troupe of artists: dancers (with special mention to dancer Frederick Alvear, who possesses immense talent and exceptional footwork), they truly impressed us, acrobatic singers…

MSC Seaside restaurants
First-class culinary experience on board MSC Seaside.
Food waste on cruises really makes me angry as a traveler. Many passengers waste a significant amount of food just because it’s free, which is totally unacceptable.
It’s crucial to understand the value of food and the impact of our waste on the environment. Cruise companies provide an abundance of food on board, so there’s unlikely to be a shortage. However, this in no way justifies the waste.
We should only take what we actually need, avoid excessive plate filling, and be mindful of the amount of food we discard.
Ultimately, we all need to do our part to reduce food waste on cruises. By taking small actions like taking leftovers or requesting smaller portions, we can contribute to minimizing our impact on the environment. Let’s show responsibility and preserve our beautiful planet, even during our vacations.
MSC Seaside cabins

Onboard the MSC Seaside, you’ll be amazed by the extensive range of cabins available. I had the opportunity to experience both interior cabins and those with balconies, and I must say that each option offers a unique and exceptional experience. Even though one is more affordable than the other, both are truly worthwhile.
Interior cabins are comfortable and provide everything you need for a pleasant stay, while cabins with balconies allow you to enjoy spectacular ocean views and bring an extra sense of space. Regardless of your choice, you’ll be delighted by the quality and comfort of these cabins. Embark on the MSC Seaside and experience an unforgettable cruise!

MSC Seaside onboard service charges
Everything you need to know about onboard service charges!
During your cruise aboard the MSC Seaside, it’s essential to consider the onboard service charges. As of April 1, 2021, these charges have become mandatory, and it’s crucial to understand the details.
The amount of the service charge is 11 euros per night per person (for individuals aged 12 and above). Children under 12 years old receive a discount, with charges of 6 euros per night.
To calculate your service charges, multiply the amount by the number of nights of your cruise. For example, for a one-week cruise of 7 nights, the service charges will amount to 77 euros per person and 42 euros for children under 12 years old.
It’s important to note that service charges can represent a significant expense for travelers. Therefore, it’s essential to take them into account when planning your cruise budget.
ATTENTION: When booking your cruise, please make sure to check if service charges are included in the total advertised price or if they are billed separately onboard. This clarification will help you organize your expenses appropriately and avoid any confusion.
Practical information before cruising with MSC SEASIDE: passports, id cards, and onboard duty-free
Here are some important tips to consider before embarking on your cruise:
- Check the necessary documents: Ensure you have your valid passport number or national ID card. Without these documents, you will not be allowed to board the ship.
- Plan your formalities in advance: Make sure your documents are up-to-date and valid for the entire duration of your cruise. It’s recommended to check the specific requirements of the cruise line and planned destinations.
- Prepare your budget: Most onboard products are duty-free, which can be advantageous for tax-free shopping. However, note that tobacco is only sold outside European waters. If you are a smoker, plan to purchase cigarette cartons before leaving these waters.
- Learn about excursions and activities: Research in advance the available excursions during your cruise. Check descriptions, prices, and reservations to plan your stay and enjoy the experiences that interest you. For all activities and excursions during your stops, check the “Port Stops” button.
- Pack your belongings: Review the cruise line’s guidelines regarding luggage and items allowed onboard. Don’t forget to pack essentials such as clothing suitable for various activities, swimwear, toiletries, and any necessary medications.
By following these practical tips, you’ll be ready for an unforgettable cruise. Enjoy your journey to the fullest by keeping this information in mind and preparing adequately. Bon voyage!
Onboard smoking policy
Finally, if you are a smoker, be aware that smoking is permitted on the starboard side (the right side of the ship). Signs will clearly indicate the designated smoking areas.
Smoking rules may vary from one cruise line to another, so it’s best to stay informed. In general, smoking is not allowed inside the ship, except in specific areas such as the casino or smoking lounge.
Oh, and during port stops and refueling, please refrain from smoking, as it could ignite the kerosene tanks.
So, stay vigilant and follow safety instructions to enjoy a worry-free and peaceful cruise.
