MSC extends fleet-wide halt through July
Pax Global Media

MSC Cruises is halting of all its cruise departures fleet-wide through to July 10th.

MSC Cruises Canada is offering guests affected by this measure a Future Cruise Credit (FCC) where they have the opportunity to transfer the full amount paid for their cancelled cruise plus an additional 25 percent credit to a future cruise of their choice, on any ship and any itinerary, departing on or before December 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 September 30, 2020.

The Cruise Assurance Program continues to allow guests who either already have a booked cruise or are booking a new cruise between July 11th through September 30th 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 December 31, 2021.

The Company previously announced the temporary halting of all its ships globally through to May 29th.

Guests booked through a Canadian tour operator should contact them directly as their terms and conditions may vary.
