In November, the MSC Seaside will depart from Genoa towards the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe. Currently, you can get the inside cabin on this cruise for €1,079 and the balcony cabin for €1,299 (which appears more interesting here in relation) – each per person. Full board and tips are included.
It is best to read the current MSC Cruises regulations regarding Covid on the ship in advance. Among other things, you must wear mouth and nose protection in all public areas if you are not seated. You must have proof that you have been vaccinated or have recovered. Individual shore leave is possible again but depends on the regulations of the ports.
Cruises booked until the end of May can be changed flexibly, but a fare difference may apply.
You get full board service with breakfast, lunch and dinner (some speciality restaurants are excluded) as well as cold and hot water, coffee, tea and milk with meals. All cabins have double beds, which can also be converted to twin beds if required.

Ship and Services
The MSC Seaside was put into service in 2017 and is 323 meters long and 41 meters wide. The ship can go up to 23 knots fast. There are several outdoor pools, an aqua park with water slides, a high ropes course, and various bars and restaurants. A total of up to 5,300 guests can board the ship. There is also a theatre, cigar lounge, spa, kids club and casino. So you won’t get bored that quickly. A look into the balcony cabin:
Milan, Turin and Nice are the main destinations for departures from Genoa. One-way tickets are often booked at short notice for around €10-20. There currently aren’t any particularly good options for the return flight. Most likely you’ll find a flight to France for around €450, but there is no hurry to book yet.
Of course, it all depends a bit on how much time you want to spend in the area beforehand and then at your destination. In any case, we recommend that you take a flight that arrives in Genoa quite early – in case you lose your connection or some other mishap occurs.
