MSC Cruises has extended their pause in operations through the end of July 2020 and has reconfirmed their March-November 2021 program.
MSC Cruises USA guests impacted by the July 11-July 31, 2020 canceled cruises will automatically receive a 125% Future Cruise Credit of the original cruise fare paid by June 19 to be used on a sailing on or before December 31, 2021.
In addition, for all guests currently booked with MSC Cruises USA between August 1 through October 31, 2020, their bookings will now be eligible for Cruise Assurance, due to a new extension of the program, which will allow them to cancel their sailing up to 48 hours prior to departure and reschedule their cruise with a 100% Future Cruise Credit good for any ship and any itinerary on or before December 31, 2021.
Today, the Swiss-based cruise line also reconfirmed its March – November 2021 program, which will include two new cruise ships currently under construction and a series of new or enriched itineraries and homeports, including a new home for MSC Divina in Central Florida.
New for next summer, the elegant MSC Divina will sail for the first time from Port Canaveral, Florida – a new homeport for MSC Cruises – and offer a mix of 3-, 4- and 7-night cruises departing on Sundays and Thursdays. With this new easily accessible homeport, MSC Cruises’ guests will now have the option of exploring the Orlando area pre- or post-cruise and extending their vacation experience.
MSC Cruises Spring-Summer-Fall 2021 program, which features all 17 vessels currently part of the cruise line’s fleet as well as the two new ships currently still under construction, MSC Virtuosa and MSC Seashore, will bring the cruise line’s fleet to 19 cruise ships.
MSC Cruises’ program offers guests choice and flexibility, with something for everyone to book with confidence.

Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve will remain a key highlight of cruises in the Caribbean, with three cruise ships calling at the private island destination in The Bahamas. Exclusive to MSC Cruises’ guests, the private island — located just 65 miles from Miami — is surrounded by 64 square miles of marine reserve, offering guests a unique opportunity to discover local marine life, soak up the spirit of Bahamian culture and reconnect with themselves and each other.
Guests can spend a full day enjoying two miles of pristine beachfront across eight world class beaches with a wide selection of ocean discovery activities like deep-sea fishing, snorkeling adventures, stand-up paddle boarding and kayaking. In the evening, the island comes alive with a spectacular lighthouse show, an authentic, high-energy Junkanoo parade and dancing under the stars with live music from Bahamian artists and DJs.
