MSC Seaside, the new flagship for MSC Cruises, prepares to welcome the first guests at her new home in Miami. MSC Seaside is the Company’s 14th addition to the MSC Cruises fleet and the second MSC Cruises ship to come into service in 2017 under the Company’s industry-unprecedented investment plan. As part of the ceremony, MSC will welcome special guests and entertainment, Miami authorities, global media, and key partners from across the travel industry.
As part of the launch ceremony, MSC will welcome special guests and entertainment, Miami authorities, global media, and key partners from across the travel industry. Headlining entertainment for the event will be international superstar Ricky Martin, who will perform some of his most popular hits. Renowned for bringing Latin music to the forefront of popular music, Ricky Martin is a worldwide star who has recorded in many languages, and truly encompasses the international spirit of MSC Cruises and the city of Miami.
Also taking to the stage will be world-famous tenor Andrea Bocelli, whose dazzling classical career has taken him all over the world. Making a guest appearance at the event will be Miami football legend and Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino, who played for the Miami Dolphins for 17 years. MSC Cruises signed a partnership with the Miami Dolphins in October of this year, becoming the official cruise line for the team and further strengthening its relationship with the South Florida community.
In charge of it all will be actor and popular American TV host Mario Lopez, who will serve as the master of ceremonies for the evening. Lopez will welcome guests to the star-lit festivities on MSCâ€™s â€œBlue Carpet,â€ where celebrities will give interviews, take photographs, and meet the crowds. Lopez will then take to the stage to host the eveningâ€™s entertainment.
An MSC Cruisesâ€™ naming ceremony would not be complete without the shipâ€™s godmother, Sophia Loren, who has played the leading role in this time-honored tradition since 2003. As one of the most celebrated Italian actresses of our time, the glamorous Sophia Loren will christen the ship with a ribbon cutting and officially name MSC Seaside.
MSC Seasideâ€™s revolutionary design is inspired by the architecture and lifestyle of Miami. The ship will offer world-class entertainment, a range of international dining concepts, a gorgeous spa, outstanding facilities for families, a private yacht club (MSC Yacht Club), modern details, and expansive outdoor spaces.
