Sister ship to the MSC Seaside, the newly-named MSC Seaview enters service in June 2018. MSC Seaview will spend its inaugural season cruising the Mediterranean.
On June 10, 2018, MSC Seaview departs from Genoa on seven-night western Mediterranean cruises. Guests may also board the ship in Marseille or Barcelona as this itinerary loops around the western Mediterranean.
MSC Seaview will visit six ports during the seven-night cruise, In addition to Genoa, Marseille and Barcelona, other ports include Naples, Messina (Sicily) and Valletta (Malta).

- Near Field Communication (NFC), using a cruise card, bracelet or smartphone for a range of different options including geo-location of children, stateroom access and onboard payment.
- Interactive screens to make it simple to select excursions as well as book shows and restaurants.
