MSC Seascape, MSC Cruises’ latest flagship, reached New York City on Monday 5 December in advance of her Naming Ceremony. Taking place on Wednesday 7 December at the Manhattan Cruise Terminal, MSC Seascape will be the line’s first ship to be named in New York City, in recognition of the addition of New York as a new homeport in April 2023 – bringing even more choice of North American embarkation ports and itineraries for MSC Cruises guests from both North America and the rest of the world.
To celebrate the occasion, a number of lucky travel partners, joined MSC Cruises AU/NZ on Sydney Harbour. Hosted by Lisa Teiotu, Sales Director, MSC Cruises AU/NZ, travel partners were treated to champagne and canapes aboard a luxury yacht. A sunny Sydney day allowed travel partners to engage in a true connection with the sea, to be educated on MSC Cruises’ latest fleet addition.
MSC Seascape will offer an immersive experience through its beautiful design and impressive outdoor spaces that can be enjoyed for relaxation, dining, and entertainment. Some of the key highlights include:
