Health and Safety Protocols
MSC has historically maintained high hygiene standards on all their ships, with rigorous cleaning and sanitisation prior, throughout and at the end of each cruise. We have further enhanced these procedures both with respect to public spaces as well as guest cabins and crew accommodations.
High traffic areas on ships are frequently sanitised with thorough cleansing and using a hospital-grade disinfectant. Key areas, which include public venues and toilets, are sanitised hourly and undergo a fogging process at night.
Guest cabins are cleaned twice a day. Once in the morning with thorough cleansing and wiping using a hospital-grade disinfectant and a further second cleaning for the most exposed surfaces, including telephones and remote controls, in the afternoon.
One of the best ways to stay healthy is to keep your hands clean. Handwashing stations and hand sanitisers are widely available around the ship. MSC has increased the availability of hand sanitiser stations and enforce hand cleansing at all onboard food and other venues.
All MSC Cruises’ ships are equipped with a well-resourced Medical Centre that is supervised by the ship’s doctor and other medical personnel and which provides a range of medical services for everyone on board.
MSC's medical staff are fully qualified and experienced medical professionals who all follow World Health Organization COVID-19 Recommendations for Healthcare Providers, as well as the recommendations of various health authorities.
Guests who suffer from flu-like symptoms are obliged to stay in their cabin and should contact the onboard Medical Centre as soon as possible. MSC's professional medical team will take care of them there and follow a clear protocol.
FOOD HYGIENE PRACTICES STANDARDS
Guests should wash their hands before entering any of the onboard food venues. There are handwashing stations and sanitiser at the entrance and exit points, with dedicated personnel to ensure that as guests utilize them.
ENTERTAINMENT RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES
- There is frequent cleaning and disinfection of all recreational equipment, toys, games and Kids’ Club facilities (after every use), plus frequent open deck sanitisation of outdoor furniture, sports equipment, pool and aquaparks.
- Spa and gym facilities are sanitised after every use.
CREW MEMBERS PRACTICES STANDARDS
- MSC ensures that all crew members follow strict health and safety preventive measures.
- Crew members undergo a daily health check by the medical staff, and if any symptoms, they are not allowed to have any interactions with Guests.
- Crew members follow proper hand washing practices before, during, and after work duty, and wear protective garments, if required.
Life on Board
Questions & Answers
Question: When should I arrive at the port?
Question: How can I communicate with my family and friends at home when I am on the cruise?
Ms.Janet has been doing our bookings for years and our relationship make us confident for all her offer and assistance. So we like that she became our sole agent handling our bookings.
This was our first MSC cruise. As an Italian line, the majority of the passengers are from countries other than the USA. About 20% of the passengers were from the States, so traveling with a companion, family or friends, I believe, made the trip more enjoyable. The Seaside is a smart ship, so booking specialty restaurants and shows were a simple process. There are 4 specialty restaurants, two all inclusive fine dining restaurants and several buffet, pool side options and coffee shops. Beyond the itinerary of this cruise, the theatrical productions were A+, New York quality and not to be missed. Our balcony cabin provided extra living space, were private and the seaboard side of the ship had the best views while in port. The ship is incredibly stunning and activities are available for all ages. The in room television is limited but pay per view is abundant. The staff are friendly and accommodating and the daily specials are abundant. Book your excursions and spa treatments before you sale for special discounts. The spa and beauty salon discounts are good once you board and specials are available for laundry services. The specialty restaurant special promotions were priced well. We highly recommend the Pan Asian restaurant.
MSC Island Ocean Cay is amazing.
once again Jason has provided us with an outstanding vacation,will be booking my next one soon ty
The staff was amazing the waiter from the restaurant He was amazing his name Is Deu. He was Professional and everything all the food and he recommended us my Husband and I the food and the Dessert and we love everything he recommended The food was delicious and the staff was very polite they asked is it morning afternoon or good evening the shows was ok we did not like the opera and the Oder show was ok to much singing The one did we loved is The Michael ..... Jackson and it was one only Comedy show you should have more like the others cruise ship and. Professional shows. Like Carnival...
MSC ARE GREAT and fabulous in all they do. I really enjoyed my self and all was well organized. Well done MSC Seaside
Our cruise on the MSC Seaside was fantastic and everything hoped it would've the Yacht Club Experience was very relaxing and special.
The FREE drinks package was not to my liking. Although it said free it was not. There was a surcharge on every drink purchased and that was not to my liking.
We had a good time :)
This is only about the cruise. MSC is a very dressy cruise. They had three gala or elegant events and at least 75% of those seen at night were dressed appropriately. Next, passengers should allow at least 3hrs from leaving the boat to check-in time for their plane or they will not make it. There are many long check-in lines. Our cruise consultant did not have the daily itinerary of the cruise and their daily day parties. That would be very helpful.
Second time on msc seaside. love the outside eating and availability. Highly recommend.
Dining room service and menu did not add up to my expectations. Dining experience was cramped and delayed everytime.
Megan was really helpful in finding us a great cruise at a great price.
Misti was awesome and extremely helpful. we appreciate her.
The agent Jason was helpfull before and during the cruise with any issues i had. The cruise its self was great and the staff were really professional and nice. I would definitely recommend this agency to other people to take cruise. I will also book my future cruise trips with this agent.
Loved the new ship,so much outside available,outdoor seating,outdoor eating,beautiful ship,truly the ship that follows the sun
This is a new ship with a few things to work out. The interior and size is amazing. The food, and specialty restaurants are very good. The entertainment is first class, the accommodations are excellent. The gym and spa are first class. The instructors are very good.
