MSC Cruises takes Cuba off the map after US law change

Following a change in American law, withdrawing permission for cruise ships to travel from the US to Cuba, MSC Cruises has been forced to modify some of its Caribbean itineraries.

Due to the substantial changes in regulations, which came into effect on Wednesday (5 June), MSC Armonia is no longer able to call at the port of Havana as part of her current Caribbean sailings.

Instead the ship will be calling at either Key West, Florida; Costa Maya, Mexico; George Town, Cayman Islands; or Cozumel in Mexico. The remainder of MSC Armonia’s itinerary will remain as originally planned.

Guests currently on MSC Armonia and their travel agents have already been informed and have been offered the following options:

  • $400 per cabin onboard credit. If not fully used during the cruise, MSC Cruises will refund the difference at check-out from the ship. Any pre-paid shore excursions in Havana will be refunded
  • The possibility to change ship and itinerary. MSC Cruises will waive cancellation fees and transfer already paid funds to the new booking
