MSC Seaside, one of the most unique ship designs since the Oasis class, will be matched with a Pan Asian restaurant by Roy Yamaguchi. The Japanese-American Yamaguchi is the creator of 30 restaurants spanning the United States to Japan. Educated at the Culinary Institute of America, is known for his cuisine is driven by his Hawaiian roots though he was born and raised in Tokyo.
The shipboard eatery will be a premium venue, meaning a cover charge. This is not out of the ordinary these days however. Passengers will be treated hibachi grills serving Korean, Thai, Japanese and Malaysian inspired food with a sushi and sashimi bar.
“The enjoyment of good food plays an integral role in creating unforgettable emotions as well as enabling our guests to discover new cultures and tastes, whilst cruising on one of our beautiful ships." said Gianni Onorato, chief executive officer of MSC Cruises.
The MSC Seaside will enter service in December 2017.
