MSC Cruises sent out the following message to travel agents making them aware of the change:
“As of July 17th, 2017, we will move our final payment date for new bookings from 60-days prior to departure to 90-days prior to departure.
There will not be any changes to deposit due dates or to cancellation penalties. We appreciate your understanding and support of this change implemented to align with the cancellation policy.”
MSC Cruises will be adding a second cruise ship out of Miami later this year when MSC Seaside makes its debut. The cruise line is planning on adding a 3rd ship in Miami in 2019 when MSC Meraviglia moves over from the Mediterranean.
MSC Cruises is the market leading cruise line in the Mediterranean, South Africa, and Brazil. They currently operate a fleet of 12 cruise ships with another 10 vessels either under construction or on order.
