Building on a relationship that extends back nearly a decade, YSA Design has conceived and developed three spaces on board MSC Cruises’ ‘MSC Seashore’.
The third vessel in the cruise line’s ‘Seaside’ class undertook her maiden voyage in August, 2021.
Following its involvement in the design of the earlier ‘MSC Seaside’ and ’Seaview’, YSA Design completed a similar project for the latest vessel in the series – a high-tech cruise ship with an interior inspired by New York City.
The 339 m eco-friendly cruise vessel features three spaces designed by YSA – a sports bar, a multi-storey water park and a kids’ club.
Having also designed these spaces for the first two vessels, YSA faced the task of updating the venues without straying too far from the formula that made previous areas popular with guests.
For the sports bar, YSA developed a 3D model to demonstrate how the venue could achieve the same characterful ambience with the addition of new features, including a stylish billiards room and authentic sports memorabilia.
Meanwhile, the Oslo-based company’s design of Pirates Cove delivers an interactive experience for adventurous children. As one of the largest water attractions at sea, the aquapark and adventure trail spans four decks and comprises several pools, swing bridges, slides and crow’s nests.
Finally, the kids’ club on deck 18 has a futuristic space and planetary exploration theme, with YSA’s focus on colour, creativity and technology.
As with previous children’s areas on board ’Seaside’-class vessels, YSA conceived ’Seashore’s’ kids’ club with safety and hygiene in mind, meaning that all materials used are soft and easy to clean.
