MSC Cruises announced on Monday (Nov. 2) a further extension of the temporary pause of its U.S.-based sailings through to and including Dec. 31, 2020.

The decision will affect the schedules of three ships based in Florida: MSC Seaside in Port Canaveral, and MSC Meraviglia and MSC Armonia both in PortMiami.

Guests booked through MSC Cruises Canada on the impacted sailings will be offered a 125Future Cruise Credit (FCC) of the original cruise fare where they have the opportunity to transfer the full amount paid for their cancelled cruise to a future cruise of their choice – on any ship and any itinerary – through April 30, 2022. 

Alternatively, they can access a full refund of the original amount after Dec. 31, 2021. Guests booked through a Canadian travel agent or tour operator, should contact them directly as their terms and conditions may vary.

The 125% FCC provides guests with opportunities to upgrade their stateroom category and add pre-purchases such as specialty dining, beverage packages, Wi-Fi or spa treatments to their booking.

Guests are being advised to contact their travel advisor or MSC Cruises directly.
