MSC Cruises Extends Temporary Pause Of US Sailings Through To And Including April 30, 2021

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (February 3, 2021)  MSC Cruises announced today a further extension of the temporary pause of its US-based sailings through to and including April 30, 2021.

The decision will affect the schedules of three ships based in Florida: MSC Divina scheduled to sail from Port Canaveral, and MSC Meraviglia and MSC Armonia scheduled to sail from PortMiami.

Guests paid in full and booked through MSC Cruises USA or affiliated US-based travel advisors on the impacted sailings between April 1, 2021 and April 30, 2021 will be offered a 125 percent future cruise credit (FCC) of the original cruise fare to be used on any future cruise of their choice — on any ship, and any itinerary that is open for sale – 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. 

For additional details, guests should contact their travel advisor or MSC Cruises directly.
