As part of its efforts to thank those on the front lines during COVID-19 crisis, MSC Cruises is offering exclusive discounts for military personnel and first responders through 2022. Bookings made during this promotion will qualify for special military discounts as well as additional perks such as onboard credit and early booking freebies. Interested individuals can book through MSC Cruises website or cruise aggregators that have special sections dedicated to first responders; proof of employment as well as identification documents are necessary in order to qualify.
MSC Cruises has traditionally struggled to gain traction in North America; however, they recently made New York their third U.S. homeport and are in talks for developing a terminal there as well. Their ships feature distinct European flair with announcements typically being made in multiple languages.
Most major cruise lines frequently offer booking bonuses of onboard credit for cruise sales. Sometimes this extra credit comes in lieu of price drops or reduced deposits; Seabourn, Oceania and Regent Seven Seas have even extended such offers to first responders and members of the military!
