People will book for the ship, not the itinerary. Marketing strategy 😉

I thought I had seen some already on the website for Seashore? Maybe Med ones? What is its deployment? A small Med session before heading west?

Looks like she may be my first Seaside Class then... There was cheap deal on Seaside in April 21 I had my eye on, but think I will wait the few months and book Seashore.

Very interested, but I can't find the transatlantic itinerary on the MSC website.   Am I missing it?  If so, what category is it listed under.  I don't see a category for transatlantic in the destination drop down box.  Thanks.

The destination category for transatlantic cruises is “MSC Grand Voyages”.

Don't know if I'm also doing something wrong, but not finding any Seashore itineraries under Grand Voyages on the UK Website when I'm running searches.

Hey @JP82! I also sought out the transatlantic when this post was made but realized it just has not been posted yet on the website. The itinerary could be floating out there on the internet on another site but I haven't stumbled upon it. One thing to note is the gap on the website is between Oct. 31 and Nov. 20. So assuming that the Med voyages end on Oct. 31, since MSC has a penchant for long, more port-intensive re-positioning voyages, I would expect a re-positioning of around that length, with maybe a day or two for festivities (or just a short taster cruise). It's all conjecture, but I feel MSC could do that. Hope that might help a bit!

With the total shutdown in Italy there is the chance that the ship could be delayed, nothing is due to open again until April 3rd and that is based on them having gained control of the virus with a halt or drop in cases.

I was just saying this to my friend, wouldn't be surprised if the Maiden Voyage is later.

Thanks for the answers to my question.  I will keep watching the Grand Voyages for this itinerary.  Still plenty of time!

Shipbuilder Fincantieri has stopped all its construction activities in the various shipyards until the end of April. This is to protect all personnel and hired companies against the Corona virus. The planning is now focused on returning to work on April 30 to phase out various cruise ships.

 

Currently the next ships are under construction at Fincantieri: 

- Silver Moon (ready for delivery)

- Enchanted Princess (delivery June 2020)

- Costa Firenze (delivery October 2020) 

- MSC Seashore (delivery May 2021)

- Ryndam (delivery October 2021)

 

The shipyard is confident that work can be restarted after this period: ’’The delivery of the various ships will not be delayed. Thats because we have a wide time frame for the construction of the ships.’’ according to Fincantieri.
