Geneva, Switzerland – February 16, 2022 – MSC Cruises’ upcoming MSC Seascape will be rich with wellness activities to inspire guests to unwind from the moment they step aboard. The Company’s newest Seaside EVO-class ship will launch in December 2022 offering 7-night cruises in the sun-soaked Caribbean. The ship’s distinctive design with nearly 140,000 sq. ft. / 13,000 m2 of outdoor space and an expansive waterfront promenade, invites guests to relax and rejuvenate by getting closer to the sea, benefitting from the calming effect that the ocean has on the mind and body. But that’s only the first step when it comes to unplugging on board.
Guests aboard MSC Seascape will delight in an expansive menu of wellness activities and attractions designed to allow every type of traveler to recharge in their own way. Here are five reasons why MSC Seascape will be the ultimate wellness escape at sea.
1) MSC Aurea Spa – pampering from head to toe
The luxurious MSC Aurea Spa sits at the heart of MSC Seascape’s tranquility, boasting 21 treatment rooms, a hair and nail salon, barbershop, and an exclusive outdoor area with three cabanas available for half-day and full-day rental. Among the spa’s signature treatments, the Dry Flotation-zero gravity experience promotes complete physical and mental relaxation while offering a unique emotional ambiance generated by the synergy of water, heat and light.
In the enhanced Thermal Area, balance seekers will find a range of therapies that use temperature manipulation to encourage healing and serenity, including a salt room, snow room, scrub room, Finnish sauna, soft sauna, blower pool, Mediterranean bath, vertical Kneipp, and steam room.
2) MSC Gym powered by Technogym™ - the ultimate workout at sea
Adjacent to the spa, the MSC Gym is a 3,000-square-foot / 290 m2 fitness oasis complete with state-of-the-art equipment and panoramic ocean views. Guests will find ultra-modern cardio and strength-training equipment provided by Technogym™, an immersive group cycling studio with 10 spin bikes, and a class studio with a variety of group fitness classes. So even whilst on vacation, guests can keep up with their fitness regime in style and comfort.
3) Wellness Classes by the Sea
Beyond the gym, MSC Seascape will embrace the opportunity to practice wellness outdoors, allowing guests to become at one with the sea. From poolside morning stretches to afternoon yoga and more, instructors will lead classes through guided flows while incorporating the warm ocean air into breathwork. For those who prefer to raise their heartbeat to the beat of a song, instructors will teach indoor and outdoor group dance classes, such as Fit Dance, Latin Dance, and Caribbean Dance. Private classes may be reserved too. With a mixture of paid-for and complimentary classes, there is something to get everyone moving at their own pace.
4) Cool Down in One of Six Glamourous Pools
MSC Seascape will be the ultimate escape for sun-worshipers and ocean lovers, with a next-level pool experience offering a range of features to connect guests with the sea.
The stunning infinity pool extends right to the aft of the ship, close to the water on deck 8, with only a glass wall separating swimmers from the ocean and offering uninterrupted waterscape vistas. On each side of the ship, two relaxing infinity whirlpools present similarly striking views.
At the Long Island Pool, the main pool area, ample deck space surrounds a 360° water fountain island, a variety of different pool depths and submerged sunbeds. Right next door, families will discover the Pirate’s Cove Aquapark, a kids’ favorite that features adventure trails and an impressive virtual reality experience on the main waterslide.
Another enhanced water-attraction is the beautifully lush Jungle Pool area spanning two decks with tons of space to relax -, complete with surrounding loungers and convenient bar. This popular area includes a retractable roof that allows it to be either open-air or enclosed.
5) Connect with Nature at Ocean Cay
Like all MSC Cruises ships sailing from ports in the United States, MSC Seascape will call at the one-of-a-kind Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve as part of every itinerary. Ocean Cay is a stunning private island destination—formerly an industrial sand extraction site that has since been lovingly restored to pristine condition. After years of hard work, passion, and dedication, the island is now a breathtaking 64-square-mile / 165 km2 marine reserve and has been designed to connect guests with nature making this the perfect spot to take a deep breath and just relax. This slice of paradise offers white sandy beaches where chairs, umbrellas and cabanas await guests for a relaxing day of soaking up the spirit of The Bahamas, while surrounded by sweeping panoramas of crystal blue waters at every turn.
The island also features its own Spa at Ocean Cay, with eight private cabanas located directly on the beach with a stunning sea view, offering exclusive Ocean Cay full body massages – choose from the traditional Ocean Cay Smooth Breeze Massage to ease tired and aching muscles or the deep rhythmic Ocean Cay Deep Blue Massage to really work deep muscle tension. Enjoy the ultimate sun salutation with open air outdoor yoga classes, complementing those offered on board MSC Seascape. For more active guests, why not try a stand-up paddle board excursion, enjoying the breathtaking ocean vistas all whilst getting in their daily workout.
