“Hi everyone. I’m Marco Cimbaro, I’m Italian and the Cruise Director onboard MSC Seashore. I’ve been a Cruise Director since 1999 and have worked on every new ship in the fleet. I was born in Massa, which is located between the beach and the mountains, in Tuscany, Italy. After leaving school, I worked as an entertainer in tourist resorts".
What does your role onboard consist of?
“As the Cruise Director, I’m in charge of all areas of entertainment and activities. Every day I manage the entire entertainment team in order to offer the best entertainment to our guests.”
Tell us about this new incredible ship, MSC Seashore. What makes her so special?
“She is special as she is our newest MSC cruise ship, with the latest technology and the largest one ever built in an Italian shipyard. She looks stunning and has been designed so guests have a memorable experience onboard. This summer she embarks on a memorable itinerary to the Mediterranean, before moving to her home port in Miami for the winter season. Guests can enjoy stops at Genoa, Naples, Messina in Sicily, Valletta, Malta, vibrant Barcelona in Spain and Marseille, France.”

“Onboard MSC Seashore every evening guests can enjoy brand new live theatre shows. We also have a newly designed area named Time Square, inspired by New York, where you can enjoy duelling piano shows.
In our aft lounge Le Cabaret Rouge, inspired by French cabaret lounges of the 1920's, guests can enjoy new shows inspired by the most world's most famous painters, like Monet, Picasso and Toulouse-Lautrec. Every night entertainers pay homage to a different artist, influenced by the artist’s unique style.
If you are after thrills, then visit the Pirates Cove Aquapark. There’s a huge range of exciting fun activities for the whole family including adventure trails, treasure hunts, a galleon for kids and lots more!
Adventure seekers can enjoy a virtual reality experience on the main water slide where you can see a Kraken attacking a medieval town. Watch out for the Kraken’s tentacles as they wrap around the adventure trail towards the Long Island pool. It will try to grab you as you slide all the way to the shore on top of its tentacles. Join us on MSC Seashore to see it for yourself!”
What kind of procedures have been put in place onboard to guarantee the safety of guests?
“Since last August, when MSC Grandiosa started sailing again, strict health and safety measures have been in place. Entertainment activities have been redesigned according to the new health and safety protocol, respecting social distancing. Masks are used and public areas are kept clean and sanitised. This allows us to continue our varied entertainment programme, throughout the day and night, so guests remain safe.”
