Cruise For as Little as $49.50 Per Day with MSC Cruises — But…

Y ou can enjoy a cruise from Miami to destinations in the Caribbean — such as the Bahamas, Mexico, Puerto Rico and Saint Maarten — for as little as $49.50 per day if you book your reservation anytime from now through Sunday, November 30, 2014 with MSC Cruises. You could also get a balcony stateroom at an ocean view price; and your kids sail for free. In addition — when you book a balcony or suite — you will receive up to a maximum of $200.00 in shipboard credit.

However, there are some things about which you should know before you run to book your cruise, as the lowest price is:

  • For select cruises only
  • For something called Bella, which is one of four inclusive experiences offered by MSC Cruises — and Bella is the lowest level of inclusive experiences
  • Per person, double occupancy — meaning you will have to share a stateroom
  • Valid only for the cruise — meaning not including excursions, for example
  • Only for residents of the United States and Canada
  • Not including government fees and taxes of $31.50 to $149.75 per person
  • Not including any possible fuel surcharges, as MSC Cruises reserves the right to pass on any fuel surcharge without prior notice to all guests

 

The price of the cruise does seem to include the following:

  • Three meals per day
  • Free access to the casino, slot machines and gaming areas.
  • Onboard activities which may be organized throughout the day — from quizzes to hobbies — which are open to everyone
  • Kids — who if they are 17 years of age or younger travel free with MSC Cruises — can participate in a program of activities which run from early morning to early evening and are free of charge
  • A fitness facility is available on most cruise ships; and access to the gym is free of charge
  • A library and card room
  • Nightclubs and disco with no entrance charge
  • All Broadway-style evening shows — from musical medleys to dramatic theater productions — are open to everyone at no extra cost.

 

Other restrictions, terms and conditions may apply.

As I wrote in this article posted on January 21, 2012 pertaining to the tragedy of the Costa Concordia — the luxury cruise ship which ran aground off the coast of Italy, resulting in the deaths of at least 32 people and injuring others — I have traveled all over the world, but I have never traveled on a cruise ship.

That disaster will not prevent me from possibly “cruising” in the future — but I personally am not interested in this special offer, so I still have no definitive plans on being a passenger on a cruise ship at this time.

If you take advantage of this offer, bon voyage
