MSC Cruises has today decided to further extend its ongoing Suspension of Cruising by making the unenviable decision to cancel all voyages through until the 10th July 2020.
“In light of the continued extraordinary circumstances the world is facing in connection with the Covid-19 virus global health emergency”
MSC had previously announced the temporary halting of all its ships globally through to 29 May. As governments across the globe have since further strengthened ashore public health and safety measures to protect local populations and contain the further spread of the virus.
Today’s decision by MSC Cruises to further extend this extraordinary measure aims to mirror and further support the effectiveness of such efforts.

MSC Cruises is offering guests affected by this measure a Future Cruise Credit (FCC) where they have the opportunity to transfer the full amount paid for their cancelled cruise to a future cruise of their choice – on any ship, for any itinerary – through to the end of 2021. In addition, guests will receive a credit benefit of between €100 and €400 per cabin, depending on the length of their original cruise.
