MSC Cruises has joined Carnival, Princess and Norwegian in extending its fleet-wide cruise suspension into the summer. The updated return to service has been set for July 10. 

MSC Cruises Canada is offering guests affected by this measure a Future Cruise Credit (FCC) for 125% towards 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 11 through September 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 December 31, 2021. 

MSC previously announced the temporary halting of all its ships globally through to May 29.
