MSC Cruises announced on Wednesday morning that they will be extending their suspension of cruises through July 10.
Previously, the cruise line halted cruises until May 10. With the new “No Sail Order” which was implemented by the CDC in mid-April, cruise companies are having to move their return-to-service date.
For guests impacted by the new canceled sailings, MSC Cruises is offering the same compensation provided as when they first announced a temporary suspension of cruises – a 125% Future Cruise Credit of the original cruise fare paid or a full refund.

The Future Cruise Credit is to be used on any sailing on or before December 31, 2021.
Cruise Assurance Program
The Cruise Assurance Program allows 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.
The cruise line details the above information on their website. MSC Cruises sails from PortMiami and Tampa, Florida.
