Cruise Assurance Program Info & FAQ
Up to 48 Hour Cancellation Before Your Cruise
At MSC Cruises, we want you to book a cruise with the assurance you need. That's why we've created the CRUISE ASSURANCE PROGRAM - allowing new and existing guests to postpone up to 48 hours prior to their cruise departure and reschedule for a future date.
Effective AUGUST 1st, 2020, guests have greater flexibility on sailings departing through October 31st, 2020. If you opt to difer a booked cruise in the given time frame, we'll give you a Future Cruise Credit in the amount you paid and you can reschedule your cruise. Your Future Cruise Credit is valid on any cruise departing on or before December 31, 2021.
If you wish to participate in the CRUISE ASSURANCE PROGRAM, please complete the online form. If you booked your cruise with a travel agent, please contact them directly to have them complete the Cruise Assurance Form on MSC Book Canada. If you have purchased any prepaid onboard amenities online (such as drink packages, internet, restaurants, etc) , please login into your account to manage booking and cancel the already purchased item(s) prior to completing the cruise assurance form.
