Six new shows will debut aboard MSC Cruises new ship MSC Seascape, with all six having been specifically designed for the vessel.
The exclusive new theatre offering will be provided alongside the popular duelling pianos concept featured on MSC Seashore when she was launched in 2021.
All six of the theatre productions will be performed in the Chora Theatre during every voyage out of PortMiami, where the ship will homeport.
“MSC Seascape is an exciting new addition to our Seaside Class of ships with some of the most remarkable entertainment options that our guests have ever seen,” said Steve Leatham, Global Head of Entertainment, MSC Cruises.
“Inspired by New York City, which is home to world-famous Broadway shows and musical productions, MSC Seascape features spectacular new shows and full-scale productions that will dazzle all our guests,” he added. “These new top notch entertainment options will take our onboard experience to the next level with superb performers, gorgeous stage design and excellent production quality.”
The six new shows include:
IMAGINOCEAN – An ocean-themed production with aerial and flying acts, aquatic animal puppetry, vocalists and dancers outfitted in couture costumes inspired by the sea.
DREAMSCAPE – A circus-themed show, with dancers and singers and interactive videos.
IN CONCERT – A rock concert-themed show with music classics and concert-style scenery and lighting.
PREMIERE – Singers and dancers performing a range of movie genres with matching costumes and backdrops.
SHALL WE DANCE – A variety of dance styles to demonstrate technical artistry, including Latin, ballroom and contemporary.
LOVE BLOOMS – Vocalists, dancers and circus artists with larger-than-life costumes bring nature to life.
MSC Seascape is set to be named in New York in early December 2022 and will operate her maiden season in the Caribbean roundtrip from Miami.
When it comes to entertainment, in addition to the Chora Theatre, the ship will also feature a 1920s French cabaret lounge-inspired venue called Le Cabaret Rouge, where live bands, singers, dancers, aerialists, contortionists and many more specialty acts will perform.
MSC Seascape is the second Seaside EVO class ship to enter the MSC Cruises’ fleet, and the fourth vessel in the line’s innovative Seaside-class.
At 169,400-gross tons, MSC Seascape is a similar size to MSC Cruises’ Meraviglia-class ships and will be able to accommodate up to 5,877 guests. What sets her apart in the fleet, however, is her 13,000 sqm of outdoor space.
The Seaside-class ships have been specifically designed for the temperate waters of the Mediterranean and Caribbean, with extensive outdoor promenades, ocean-facing restaurants and cafes and plenty of pool areas.
Although she’s a sister ship to MSC Seaside, Seaview and Seashore, MSC Seascape has seen nearly 70% of her public spaces completely re-designed.
