MSC Cruises USA is following a number of major US-based lines in shifting to a 48-hour cancellation policy.

'Cruise Assurance' for North American travelers

Starting March 10, the 'Cruise Assurance' program will give North American travelers the option to cancel up to 48 hours before departure and receive a future cruise credit in the amount paid.

This will apply to existing and new reservations from now to the end of July.

Credit for new cruise sailing through 2021

The future cruise credit can be applied to any sailing departing on or before Dec. 31, 2021.
