FAQ

How much do I bid through MSC UpGrade if my reservation includes more than two guests?

If your reservation includes multiple guests, the offer amount submitted will be per guest but only for the first and second guest on the reservation. So if you originally booked a cabin for three persons and bid $ 100 for an MSC UpGrade cabin upgrade. The first two passengers named on the reservation would be charged $ 100 each for the upgrade, and the third passenger would enjoy the upgrade at no additional cost if the upgrade is accepted.

How will I be charged for MSC UpGrade if I travel alone?

You will be charged based on double occupancy. For example, if you originally booked a single occupancy cabin and bid $ 100 for an MSC UpGrade cabin upgrade, you will be charged $ 200 if the upgrade is accepted.

How do MSC UpGrade offer work if I’m part of a group or travelling with another reservation?

If I’m travelling with another cabin, can I bid only once through MSC UpGrade and, if accepted, cancel the second reservation and move the guests into the upgraded cabin?

No, if you are travelling with another cabin, you will need to submit two separate bids, and each will be considered independently. MSC cannot guarantee that both reservations will be upgraded. In case that one of the reservations gets upgraded, you cannot move the other guests into the upgraded cabin. All reservations cancelled within the penalty period will be subject to MSC’s standard cancellation fees outlined in the Booking Terms and Conditions.
