If you’re thinking about cruising to the Caribbean next year with MSC Cruises, now may be the time to consider booking.
From now through October 31, travelers can book under MSC Cruises’ new Trip & Treat promotion to save 50 percent or more on their cruise fare, and bring kids 17 and under for free on most sailings.
Qualifying voyages are three, four, and seven-nights long aboard the line’s four ships sailing from the United States: MSC Seaside, Divina, Meraviglia, and Armonia.
“We’ve seen an excitement to get back to cruising the Caribbean and The Bahamas, and with the benefit of great savings as well as increased flexibility with our successful Total CruiseFlex program, families can start planning their long-awaited vacations with comfort and confidence,” said Ken Muskat, EVP and COO of MSC Cruises USA. “…Our guests not only have four entirely distinct ships to choose from when sailing from the U.S. to the Caribbean, but also a variety of cruise itinerary lengths to choose from and a new easily-accessible homeport, Port Canaveral, near Orlando.”

All ships in the Trip & Treat promotion will call at MSC Cruises’ new private island in the Bahamas, Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve. Located 65 miles from Miami, the island is surrounded by 64 square miles of marine reserve.
It also offers over two miles of white sand beaches, and many itineraries that stop there stay long into the evening or even overnight into the next day. Aside from enjoying one of the eight beaches, travelers can also enjoy snorkeling, paddleboarding, kayaking, and more at Ocean Cay.
Healthcare Heroes Discount
As was already announced in the summer, MSC Cruises is saying thank you to healthcare professionals for their contribution to fighting the global pandemic by offering up to 50 percent off cruise fares for all front-line and back-office healthcare professionals.
This discount can be combined with the Trip & Treat promotion, meaning healthcare workers can save up to 50 percent on top of the at least 50 percent off cruise fares through the current sale. The healthcare heroes promotion is available through April 30, 2021.
MSC Voyagers Club Discount
Also on top of the Trip & Treat promotion, members of the MSC Voyagers Club loyalty program benefit further with a promotion that allows them to receive a five percent discount on top of the five percent discount they already automatically receive on all cruise bookings. Loyalty club members also get up to $100 in onboard credit, based on their membership level. Club members can click here to learn more about their enhanced discounts.
MSC Cruises has launched Total CruiseFlex, a flexibility program that allows passengers to move their booked cruise to any ship and any sail date up to 48 hours before their voyage. Because of this program, travelers can book during the Trip & Treat sale and plan their voyage without worrying about changing their plans. Total CruiseFlex applies to any new bookings made between August 5 and October 31, 2020 on any sailing departing between December 1, 2020, and December 31, 2021.
Return to Cruising
MSC’s ship MSC Grandiosa resumed sailings in the Mediterranean in August. Operations on the ship have strictly followed MSC’s new health and safety guidelines with outstanding results. A second ship, MSC Magnifica, is set to return to sailing on October 19, also in the Mediterranean.
MSC sailings in North America are set to begin resuming on December 1, 2020.
