MSC’s new cruise ship, named “MSC Seaside”, is already in the Port of Funchal, in what is its maiden voyage. At 6 am, while the city was still sleeping, the new giant of the seas lay in the Port of Funchal, waiting for the passengers to be baptized in the new vessel of the largest private cruise company in the world.

Some curious people registered the moment and the objective of Rui Marote registered the first images of a floating package that lay to the Port, firm and silent, as if it were a toy. It is the high technology in the service of nautical engineering that makes possible the creation of these five star floating hotels.
