Dope trip to Florida, minus the meth and mosquitoes, right? Well, it still don’t come free. A seven-night cruise through the Caribbean starts at $449, with balcony cabins closer to $900. For that price, Seaside will take you the likes of Jamaica, Grand Cayman, and Cozumel on one itinerary, and St. Thomas, Antigua, and Nassau on another. There are of course add-ons like unlimited drinks and specialty dining. That’s all up to you, you hedonist.
So maybe the MSC Seaside hasn’t COMPLETELY captured the glory of the Sunshine State, but it comes darned close. The design, food, waterslides and theme-park attractions make a surprisingly coherent collection of all the reasons people go on vacation either in Florida -- or at sea, a safe distance away from it.
