MSC cancels U.S. cruises through end of February 2021

MSC Seaside at sea

MSC Cruises announced it would extend its suspension of U.S. cruises through the end of February 2021.

Like all the other major cruises lines, MSC will delay its restart plans for North America.

Three MSC cruise ships are affected by the announcement:

  • MSC Seaside in Port Canaveral
  • MSC Meraviglia in PortMiami
  • MSC Armonia in PortMiami

Guests booked and paid in full through MSC Cruises USA or affiliated US-based travel advisors on the impacted sailings will be offered a 125 percent future 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, or can request a refund. 

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.

Royal Caribbean, NCL and Carnival have all cancelled cruises through at least end of February while they prepare to restart operations.
