Hi there!

MSC will let us know when Seaside will be included. Thanks for asking!

Hi Laura,
We now have over 60 people for the Meet & Mingle for the 1 st Dec 2017 sailing of the MSC Seaside and want to hold it on the first sea day but as we have so many what would you suggest we do as we need to let everyone now of the venue before they leave for the cruise? Do you have a contact e mail we can use? We do need to sort something out with the ship before we sail.

Our roll call is the January 6, 2018 Seaside sailing and we are wanting to get ours scheduled as well. I am thinking of just reaching out to them directly. Anybody have any luck with that?

We also have a group of over 30 people (plus spouses/families) very interested in a meet and mingle for the 12-23-17 Seaside sailing. I went to one on the Divina in August and it was terrific! We'd love to have one on Seaside.

Ditto! I just sent a note to your Meet and Mingle email address and to customer service at MSC concerning setting up a meet for us.

Hi Laura,
Has there been any response from MSC about Meet and Mingles on Seaside? They really are so wonderfully organized! We've all been anticipating this new ship and getting so excited for our sailing, it would be disappointing not to have a M & M with those we've been chatting with. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

New Ship, New Friends, New passengers, come on MSC a M & G would be great seeing as Seaside is sailing out of Miami just like Divina.

I've decided to take a different approach. Someone posted that Andre will be the Cruise Director on Seaside. I found him on twitter (@aschlemmercd, which also confirms he's CD on Seaside, and he was on Divina, so he knows about the M&M's) and asked him (and Captain Scala, @captainscala) if they could help get M&M's set up on Seaside. He responded "I’ll check with our corporate office". Hopefully we can get things moving!

Great - thank you! I also reached out to Andre and a friend on the Divina this week is going to speak to him about it as well.

You never know!

Is he still on Divina? Either way, it's not like he doesn't know about them on Divina, so hopefully he can get the appropriate person in Corporate to respond to whoever from CC has been contacting them and get things set up. I think that with Seaside, more than Divina or any other ship, they want to engage with CC members.

Agreed! Yes, he's there another week or two I think, then to Europe to get trained and ready, I believe.

I think with our cruise as the first out of Miami and being over Christmas, an official M & M may not happen, but I'm hopeful and I'll keep trying!!

Just FYI, he tweeted on 10/1 that he was on vacation until November, when he was joining Seaside.

Thank you! He must be leaving when they arrive in Miami. He will be missed on the Divina but I'm glad we will have him!

I also wrote to cc for help on this issue and I just received this reply.

Thanks for writing. At this time MSC is not planning formal Meet and Greets on Seaside.
I think that they may in the future, but we don’t have any info at this time

Once we have the program in place we will announce it
Thank you

That's not what his tweet implied but be sure to let us know if your friend gives him the message!

Latest from Andre after someone posted your info about not having the M&M on Seaside:

"We have not decided this...all is TBC!"

and the MSC id liked his reply. So.. stay tuned and hope for the best.

Yay! Thanks for following up! No word from my friend. I also sent an email to MSC and sent a message on FB.

Where did Andre post this? I don't have twitter but can follow him elsewhere if it's public...

I just chatted online with an agent form MSC and she said all we need to do is call them directly to reserve a space. You'll need the number of guests, start time, and for how long. It may not be as nice as a CC formal M&M with cake and snacks, captain and crew, but I'd be willing to bet they may do something!
