Hygiene and Safety Protocols
MSC has historically maintained high hygiene standards on all their ships, with rigorous cleaning and sanitisation prior, throughout and at the end of each cruise. We have further enhanced these procedures both with respect to public spaces as well as guest cabins and crew accommodations.
High traffic areas on ships are frequently sanitised with thorough cleansing and using a hospital-grade disinfectant. Key areas, which include public venues and toilets, are sanitised hourly and undergo a fogging process at night.
Guest cabins are cleaned twice a day. Once in the morning with thorough cleansing and wiping using a hospital-grade disinfectant and a further second cleaning for the most exposed surfaces, including telephones and remote controls, in the afternoon.
One of the best ways to stay healthy is to keep your hands clean. Handwashing stations and hand sanitisers are widely available around the ship. MSC has increased the availability of hand sanitiser stations and enforce hand cleansing at all onboard food and other venues.
All MSC Cruises’ ships are equipped with a well-resourced Medical Centre that is supervised by the ship’s doctor and other medical personnel and which provides a range of medical services for everyone on board.
MSC's medical staff are fully qualified and experienced medical professionals who all follow World Health Organization COVID-19 Recommendations for Healthcare Providers, as well as the recommendations of various health authorities.
Guests who suffer from flu-like symptoms are obliged to stay in their cabin and should contact the onboard Medical Centre as soon as possible. MSC's professional medical team will take care of them there and follow a clear protocol.
FOOD HYGIENE PRACTICES STANDARDS
Guests should wash their hands before entering any of the onboard food venues. There are handwashing stations and sanitiser at the entrance and exit points, with dedicated personnel to ensure that as guests utilize them.
ENTERTAINMENT RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES
- There is frequent cleaning and disinfection of all recreational equipment, toys, games and Kids’ Club facilities (after every use), plus frequent open deck sanitisation of outdoor furniture, sports equipment, pool and aquaparks.

CREW MEMBERS PRACTICES STANDARDS

Life on Board
Questions & Answers
Question: When should I arrive at the port?
Question: How can I communicate with my family and friends at home when I am on the cruise?
Ms.Janet has been doing our bookings for years and our relationship make us confident for all her offer and assistance. So we like that she became our sole agent handling our bookings.
This was our first MSC cruise. As an Italian line, the majority of the passengers are from countries other than the USA. About 20% of the passengers were from the States, so traveling with a companion, family or friends, I believe, made the trip more enjoyable. The Seaside is a smart ship, so booking specialty restaurants and shows were a simple process. There are 4 specialty restaurants, two all inclusive fine dining restaurants and several buffet, pool side options and coffee shops. Beyond the itinerary of this cruise, the theatrical productions were A+, New York quality and not to be missed. Our balcony cabin provided extra living space, were private and the seaboard side of the ship had the best views while in port. The ship is incredibly stunning and activities are available for all ages. The in room television is limited but pay per view is abundant. The staff are friendly and accommodating and the daily specials are abundant. Book your excursions and spa treatments before you sale for special discounts. The spa and beauty salon discounts are good once you board and specials are available for laundry services. The specialty restaurant special promotions were priced well. We highly recommend the Pan Asian restaurant.
Arthur was extremely professional and helped us with many different changes including accommodating our friends on this trip. Thank you very much Arthur window
Arthur, our booking agent at Affordable Tours, was simply fantastic. If I didn't want him all to myself the next time I need a cruise, I'd tell everyone to ask for him. Well.... I guess I just did. I and two other family members got on the cruise late through a cancellation, and it was a real scramble to get everything in place. Arthur was totally on top of it all, kept calling the cruise line on our behalf, arranging everything when I couldn't get through, and was just as sweet as pie every time I bothered him about something. He is absolutely THE BEST. Though no fault of Arthur's, the cruiseship we were on had some kinks to be worked out. We lost hot water four times in our cabin, of course always right when we needed to take a shower because we were headed out for dinner or an excursion. The t.v. worked very intermittently. They charged for every drink, even non-alcoholic ones (including water), and the drink packages that obviated the need to pay every time were VERY expensive. (e.g. $29 day/per person for non-alcoholic drinks). Wifi was quite expensive, too, and then, at least for us, it didn't work. Even the agents on board tasked with helping ppl in this regard couldn't make it work. Nice ship, though, and I imagine they'll get the kinks worked out with time. And the staff was all super nice and accommodating. It was great to have a deck to sit outside by ourselves when we wanted to be alone. All in all, a very diverting experience! (Oh, and the Cirque du Soleil shows were AMAZING!!!) THANK YOU ARTHUR!
MSC Island Ocean Cay is amazing.
once again Jason has provided us with an outstanding vacation,will be booking my next one soon ty
Several items were in limited supply or missing. Service in the main restaurant was at times quite slow.
Service was very good, food was good, shows need some production value but entertainers were very good.

He was Professional and everything all the food and he recommended us my Husband and I the food and the Dessert and we love everything he recommended The food was delicious and the staff was very polite they asked is it morning afternoon or good evening the shows was ok we did not like the opera and the Oder show was ok to much singing The one did we loved is The Michael .....

MSC ARE GREAT and fabulous in all they do. I really enjoyed my self and all was well organized. Well done MSC Seaside
Professional service provided by Boris, thanks a lot.
Our cruise on the MSC Seaside was fantastic and everything hoped it would've the Yacht Club Experience was very relaxing and special.
The FREE drinks package was not to my liking. Although it said free it was not. There was a surcharge on every drink purchased and that was not to my liking.
Thank you Affordable Tour and Soazig for your outstanding support.
A great experience for my 13 year old daughter to realize how many more cultures there are too experience. This was here first international trip. She now has interest in learning a foreign language. MSC delivered on most expectations. When there was a gap, the ship staff did EVERYTHING to exceed expectations.
