MSC Seaview is a Seaside-class cruise ship owned and operated by MSC Cruises. Built by Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri in Monfalcone and delivered in June 2018, she is the sister ship to her class' lead vessel, MSC Seaside.
On 22 May 2014, MSC Cruises announced that they had ordered two new 154,000 GT cruise ships from Fincantieri. The new order was based on the Seaside prototype, with each ship costing €700 million each.
On 16 October 2015, MSC performed the steel cutting ceremony for what would be their second Seaside-class ship in Monfalcone. MSC revealed the name of the second Seaside-class vessel as MSC Seaview the following year, on 4 July 2016. On 2 February 2017, MSC held the keel-laying and coin ceremonies for the ship, in which two coins were placed under the ship's new keel block for good fortune before the keel was laid. On 23 August 2017, MSC Seaview was floated out from the shipyard. On 23 April 2018, she set sail for five days of sea trials.
MSC Seaview was delivered on 4 June 2018 with a ceremony in Monfalcone. She was christened in Genoa by her godmother, Sophia Loren, on 9 June 2018.
MSC Seaview has 18 decks and a length of 323 metres (1,060 ft), a draft of 8.55 metres (28.1 ft), a depth of 12.1 metres (40 ft), and a beam of 41 metres (135 ft). The total passenger capacity is 5,119 across 2,066 passenger cabins, with a crew complement of 1,413 across 759 crew cabins, making for a maximum capacity of 6,592 persons. She is also powered by a diesel-electric genset system, with four Wärtsilä engines driving GE Marine electrical equipment and producing 62.4 megawatts (83,700 hp), and equipped with exhaust scrubbers to contend with soot. Main propulsion is via two propellers, each driven by a 20 megawatts (27,000 hp) electric motor; four forward and three aft 3.1 megawatts (4,200 hp) thrusters allow for close-quarters maneuvering. The system gives the vessel a service speed of 21.3 knots (39.4 km/h; 24.5 mph) and a maximum service speed of 23 knots (43 km/h; 26 mph).
