Buffet Restaurants

The main dining room experience aboard MSC Seaside is consistent across Seashore and Ipanema restaurants, sharing identical dining menus encompassing appetizers, main courses, and desserts. Diverse culinary choices, from antipasti and fish to salads, pasta, chicken, beef, and seasonal soups, cater to varied preferences. The menu also features Chef's selections and a "Classic Favorites" section for those seeking familiar options. Notably, extra-fee items are available, each complemented by a complimentary side.

Seashore Restaurant (Deck 5)

Seashore Restaurant (deck 5) invites guests for breakfast daily, lunch exclusively on sea days, and dinner every evening, with three scheduled seatings. However, those opting for MSC's flexible My Choice dining can enjoy dinner at Seashore at their convenience during regular opening hours.

Ipanema (Deck 6)

Ipanema (deck 6), providing stunning sea views through expansive windows, exclusively serves dinner with three designated seatings. Tables at both restaurants accommodate parties ranging from two to 10 individuals. While the main dining room service is generally efficient, it leans towards functionality rather than excessive engagement.

MSC Seaside Buffet Restaurants

MSC Seaside boasts two onboard buffets: Marketplace Buffet on Deck 8, positioned near the outdoor promenade, and Biscayne Bay Buffet on Deck 16, a family-friendly option close to the ship's main pool area. Both buffets provide indoor and outdoor seating, offering virtually identical breakfast and lunch options daily. However, Marketplace exclusively serves dinner each night and features select hours for pizza, grill items, and afternoon and midnight snacks like sandwiches and cookies.

The MSC Seaside buffet pizza is a culinary highlight, crafted fresh throughout the day. It's worth noting that access to Biscayne Bay Buffet from the forward end of Deck 16 is unavailable; passengers must utilize the aft elevator bank and stairs.

For a more exclusive dining experience, the MSC Yacht Club Restaurant on Deck 18 caters to passengers booked in the MSC Yacht Club. Positioned on a balcony overlooking the private Top Sail Lounge on Deck 16, the restaurant accommodates tables for two to ten guests. With a daily varying menu distinguishing it from the main dining rooms, the MSC Yacht Club Restaurant often features premium cuts of meat, offering a distinctive culinary experience.
