Thoughts on MSC and being able to cruise in September 2021?

So today my parents and I decided to book a cruise for their 40th wedding anniversary in September 2021. We're not new to cruising, but this will be our first time on MSC, and we're going on the Divina. Previous lines we've cruised are Carnival, Costa, Norwegian, Royal, and Celebrity, mainly. What can we expect that's different on MSC?

Also, do you think it will be safe to cruise again by that time?

My niece doesn't know this yet, but she's booked to go with us! It will be her second cruise (first was this past Feb. on Norwegian Bliss), and she did so well that we want to take her on another! What's the kid's program like? She will be 8 by the time we set sail.

Cruising in September, 2021 is a possibility but all depends on the new world normal by then.

In regards to MSC and the Divina, have you checked the review section on the top of this page- good info there.

I have heard both good and bad about MSC. Mostly good so I hope you enjoy. As for Sept 2021 .. we will either be cruising by that time or the cruise industry and most travel will be no more. That is a fair ways off and who knows what will happen between then and now. Second or third wave of covid should have come and gone by then but you never know. Have to stay optimistic and think it is a go. We have been wondering about future cruises ourselves and have taken a chance that Sept of this year will be ok so 2021 .. well that is a long way off. Plan on it and hope for the best.

Just remember that you are in the heart of hurricane season, even if everything else is back to “normal”. Otherwise, I think you will be fine.

Just got my confirmation! Cruising during Hurricane Season in September doesn't bother me. I live outside Boston and have done the Boston to Bermuda itinerary in September before (I did this last year on Serenade Of The Seas).

Guess they're hiring in July for August sailing now. Its all about risk mitigation.

They ended up cancelling our cruise...a year and a half out!
