  3. MSC Seaside
We chose the Seaside again because of the beauty of the ship, the lovely staff including approachable, interesting, kind officers. The opera singers and all of the other entertainers are amazingly good. I like opera to a degree. Sometimes it puts me to sleep, but that is just me. I sit close to an aisle.lol. We decided to check out some of the family entertainment. MSC-Seaside really bends over backwards to make families with children feel welcome. I watch. I see. I think my grandchildren ages 1 to 18, would have a wonderful vacation on this ship. There is just so much to do. The food is so good! I/we read some of the negative reviews and we ask ourselves what do these people eat at home? There are so many choices both in the dining room and at the buffets. I am on a very restricted diet. MSC-Seaside is taking such good care of me. Gluten free, vegan(I eat fish) and dairy free. I am being pampered by all the attention. My husband is on a regular diet and enjoys the meals. The cruise critic community was treated to a special time with the officers. Drinks, snacks and a special cake was served. Thanks everyone! PS.. No sponsered excursions this time for us. We chose to stay on the ship and enjoy the food and drinks and the swimming pools.

Third cruise with MSC-Seaside.

Cabin Review

Fantastica Balcony Stateroom
Cabin B2 13104
We are happy with the location, close to the elevators.
It's good to be able to get fresh air anytime,to see the moon and the stars at night.
During the day we make use of the balcony also for quiet moments.
