MSC Seashore Live Blog - Day 2 - Ocean Cay

The second day of my MSC Seashore cruise was a much anticipated visit to Ocean Cay Marine Reserve (Ocean Cay). MSC's private island is the Bahamas, not far from Bimini.

With the current weather issues in the Caribbean, I felt very fortunate that we were able to make this port stop.

MSC Seashore Live Blog - Day 1 - Embarkation Day

Before I even boarded MSC Seashore today, there was lots of buzz in online cruise groups about the changes in the itinerary due to Tropical Storm Fiona.

Instead of going to the eastern Caribbean, including Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, and the Dominican Republic, we have switched to a western Caribbean itinerary, visiting Roatan, Honduras, Cozumel, and Costa Maya in Mexico. Thankfully, we are still going to Ocean Cay, MSC's private island in the Bahamas, although I would have loved to see Puerto Rico as well.

MSC Cruises Cancelation Policy

Unfortunately, sometimes we need to cancel a cruise. Work, health, or any number of other things can pop up and change our plans, but no one wants to waste their hard earned vacation money regardless of the reason.

It is always a good idea to understand cancelation policies prior to booking. Details regarding how you much money you will get back, timeframes and processes are all things we need to know ahead of time.

MSC Cruises entire fleet returns to service
