GENEVA — MSC Cruises has pushed back its suspension of operations by several more weeks in response to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
All departures fleet-wide have been halted through to July 10, past the previously announced date of May 29.
Impacted guests are being offered a future cruise credit that will allow them to transfer the full amount paid for their cancelled cruise plus an additional 25% credit to a future cruise of their choice, on any ship and any itinerary, departing on or before Dec. 31 2021. Any applicable pre-paid items and government taxes will be refunded to the original form of payment.
MSC Cruises Canada’s Cruise Assurance Program has already been extended through Sept. 30, 2020. The program allows guests who either already have a booked cruise or are booking a new cruise between July 11 through Sept. 30 to reschedule their cruise to a future sailing up to 48 hours prior to their cruise departure date. Guests and their travel advisors will be able to transfer any of these bookings at no cost to any ship and any itinerary in the MSC Cruises’ fleet, departing on or before Dec. 31, 2021.
Guests booked through a Canadian tour operator should contact them directly as their terms and conditions may vary.
