During the Cruise Shipping Miami industry conference last week, MSC Cruises announced the coming addition of a new American-based cruise ship that will offer plenty of perks for families.

Expected to debut in December 2017 in Miami, MSC Seaside will be a 4,140 passenger ship. The ship’s main fun attraction for kids will be its aqua park featuring a 367-foot tube water slide that extends over the ocean, racing water slides, a Slideboarding tube, an inner tube slide and a family slide. The park will also offer a splash park and water playground. Kids enjoying the aqua park’s Adventure Trail ropes course will even have to dodge spray cannons. The ship will also offer family staterooms and suites.

A second Seaside Class ship is also expected to launch in May 2018 with similar features, and a third may join the scene by 2021.
