The Seaside EVO ships are an evolution of the innovative Seaside class. MSC Seascape pays homage to the beauty of the ocean with a whole host of innovative design features to enable guests to enjoy breathtaking sea views. 65 per cent of MSC Seascape’s public spaces have been completely re-imagined, bringing the guest experience to the next level, and offering beautiful venues and locations to connect with the sea.

MSC World Europa is the first in the trailblazing MSC World Class - a brand new class of ships that introduces a completely new cruising platform.

The new Dawn is coming! Classic, yet modern, Silver Dawn is the tenth ultra-luxury ship and the natural evolution of the Silversea fleet, set to debut this April. Large enough to offer eight dining options – including the superb Sea and Land Taste (S.A.L.T.) programme – yet small enough for the famed Silversea on board ambience, Silver Dawn inherits the best features of her sister ships Silver Muse and Silver Moon but is in a class all of her own.
