This month marks the fifth anniversary of the MSC Seaview’s operation. MSC Cruises received the vessel on June 4, 2018, as its 15th ship.
Seaview, built by Fincantieri in Monfalcone, Italy, is a sister ship to the MSC Seaside, which debuted one year earlier.
An onboard ceremony was held by the shipyard and the company to celebrate the delivery.
In a tribute to the maritime tradition, MSC Cruises presented the first master of Seaview with an ampoule containing the first water that touched the vessel’s hull.
A short time after leaving the dock where it was built, the MSC Seaview set sail for the opening season of the Western Mediterranean.
June 7 marked the return of the 4,140-passenger ship to its homeport of Genoa after a commemorative three-night cruise.
The ship was christened two days later by MSC’s fleet godmother Sophia Loren.
As part of its first commercial voyage, MSC Seaview sailed from Barcelona to Malta, Spain, France, and Italy on June 10.
As part of the European summer itinerary, Marseille, Barcelona, Genoa, Naples, Messina, and Valletta were visited.
Brazilian domestic itineraries were offered by MSC Seaview during its inaugural winter season. As the largest vessel to ever sail from Santos, the 154,000-ton vessel set new records in South America.
During the summer, the ship cruises the Mediterranean and heads to South America for the winter of 2023-24.
