CSA Travel Protection (CSA) and MSC Cruises USA, Inc. (MSC), have announced the cruise line now offers passengers affordable CSA travel insurance. The customized CSA coverage for MSC passengers includes customer service and assistance, such as medical referrals and evacuation, at destinations worldwide.
"MSC ships sail to and from destinations all over the world, from the Caribbean and SouthAmerica to the Mediterranean and Northern Europe,” said Richard E. Sasso, president and CEO of MSC. “CSA protects travelers anywhere in the world, and thus can offer MSC’s customers peace of mind on any cruise. Travel professionals and consumers benefit equally in savings and excellent customer service."
In keeping with MSC’s “Kids Sail Free” program, CSA’s MSC travel insurance and assistance plan provides coverage for children at no additional cost, and pre-existing conditions are accepted within 24 hours of final payment.
"CSA and MSC are dedicated to offering customers the highest level of customer service and satisfaction before, during and after their trip,” said Les Maine, CEO of CSA. “Our coverage is optimal for cruise passengers and, through MSC, is delivered at a lower cost than most travel insurance available."
MSC Cruises currently has nine ships. MSC Splendida and MSC Magnifica will be launched, respectively, in 2009 and 2010. MSC Cruises is the only company to receive the "6 Golden Pearls" award from the Bureau Veritas in recognition of its high level of quality management and environmental protection.
