    • MSC Cruises cannot accept a booking and the carrier cannot carry any passenger who will be 24 or more weeks pregnant by the end of the cruise. MSC Cruises and the carrier expressly reserve the right to refuse boarding rights to any passenger who appears to be in any advanced state of pregnancy or who does not provide the required medical certificate as provided in this section. Neither MSC Cruises nor carrier shall have any liability or owe any refund to any passenger who is denied boarding as a result of being 24 or more weeks pregnant or for failing to have the required medical certificate. All guests are required to sign a health questionnaire at check-in to ensure they are aware of our pregnancy policy. If you have already booked a cruise or cruise tour and do not meet this requirement, please contact Love Like You Mean It Guest Services at 855-208-8822.
    • No Guest younger than the age twenty-one (21) will be assigned to a stateroom unless accompanied in the same stateroom by an adult twenty-one (21) years old or older. A guest's age is established upon the first date of sailing. This age limit will be waived for underage married couples; and for active duty members of the United States or Canadian military. Certain other restrictions and conditions will apply; such as compliance with the age twenty-one (21) alcohol policy, and proof of marriage for underage couples or proof of active duty military status required.

  17. Will there be an event schedule available for the cruise?

    *Performance schedules, performer line-up, and cruise itinerary are subject to change without notice.  See terms and conditions for more information.

  18. Can we save seats at the onboard sessions?

    No. FamilyLife® wants all guests to have the same opportunity to get great seats in our events. Therefore, we have established a policy of no saving seats. From the leadership of the ministry to the performers and their families to our media partners to our staff, and to our passengers, we have the same policy. No one has early access privileges. Once in an event, there is no saving of seats for other members of your party. All seating is done on a first-come, first-serve basis.

    The only exception to this policy is for guests who are confined to a wheelchair (for venues where wheelchair-specific seating is applicable). Please go to the FamilyLife Guest Service desk to pick up a Special Seating Pass for you and your spouse.

  19. Will artist and speaker merchandise be available for sale on the cruise?

    The FamilyLife® Store will be open at various times throughout the cruise.  Look in the FamilyLife® Cruise Guide for the schedule and location.  You can shop for CDs, artist T-shirts, books, and other specialty items.  While you are there, don’t forget to purchase your Love Like You Mean It Marriage Cruise® T-shirts and souvenirs, too!

  20. What activities will be available on board the ship?

    Too many to mention in this short space! The beauty of the Love Like You Mean It® Marriage Cruise is that you can do as little or as much as you want to do. In addition to the typical cruise activities and amenities, there will be nightly concerts, morning devotions, comedy, and so much more!

  21. What should I pack?

    Casual attire is the order of the day, both on board and ashore.  During the daytime, most anything goes since we know you're probably headed to the pool or out for a fun Shore Excursion.  Casual shorts, jeans, tops, and sundresses are welcome everywhere. 

    Resort casual dress gets you into every venue at night, too. Some people like to add a jacket, or when celebrating a special occasion, get all decked out. This, too, is welcome everywhere. Some people prefer nice jeans. They're welcome in many of the restaurants as well, but not in all.

    Since you may opt to check your luggage with the porters the night before we return home, don't forget to bring an overnight bag packed with a change of clothes, prescriptions, and other must-have items.

  22. Will I have access to the Internet while on board the ship?

    Yacht Club and  Aurea Experience guests have internet service included in their cruise package. 

    Bella and Fantastica Guests will have the opportunity to add-on internet packages at a later date at an additional cost. Guests will be notified through the monthly newsletter when that opportunity is available.

  23. What about electrical appliances?

    There is one electrical outlet in each stateroom, located in the area of the desk/vanity. The outlet is equipped with a 3-prong 110 volt and a 220 volt plug capable of handling hair dryers, curling irons, etc. The outlet in the bathroom can only be used for electric razors. Please note, the MSC Seascape provides a hair dryer in each stateroom. It can be found in the drawer near the vanity.

    Pressing and laundry services are available on board for a fee. Personal irons and extension cords are not allowed on board.

  24. Can I bring a radio on board?

    You are welcome to bring radios, iPods, etc. for your private enjoyment. However, for the comfort of other guests, we request that headphones or ear pieces be used in public areas.

  25. Do I need to bring my own towels?

    Towels are supplied for each guest in your stateroom. Towels are also available for all guests on the pool deck. You will need to check out your towels on the pool deck.

  26. What do I do with my valuables?

    We're sure you'll want to bring your camera, jewelry, and other valuable items with you on your cruise. For our guests' convenience and security, a safe is provided in every stateroom and is located in either the closet or a cabinet. Guests use their room key as the key to lock and unlock this safe. Please note, however, that FamilyLife® is not responsible for valuables left in staterooms or elsewhere on board.

  27. Where is the lost and found?

    The Lost and Found is located at the Guest Services Desk. If you've lost anything, you should report the item to the Guest Services Desk and ask if it has been returned yet. If you find anything, please turn it in there. After the ship returns to your port of origin, all found and unclaimed articles will be sent to the company headquarters where they can be claimed.

  28. Is there a medical staff on board?

    Yes, should a guest require medical attention while on board the ship, the Medical Center staff is available to assist 24 hours a day. The onboard Medical Center is staffed and equipped to treat routine medical conditions as well as to initiate stabilization of more serious conditions. Physicians are available to render services at a customary fee. While at sea or in port, the availability of medical care may be limited.

  29. Will I get seasick?

    The ship is equipped with stabilizers which are designed to keep it smooth and steady in the water. Should you have a concern about seasickness, please consult your doctor in advance of the cruise. If you should feel seasick while on the cruise, you can purchase motion sickness tablets from the Medical Center on board.

  30. How do I inform MSC Cruises about special medical or dietary needs I have? 

    If you have any special needs such as a wheelchair, medical, dietary, CPAP machine, etc, you must submit the MSC Special Needs form. Please email filled out form to at least 30 days prior to sailing.


  31. What about my medications?

    Please carry your required medication in your pocket or purse so that it will be available when needed. Checked luggage may not be accessible at all times.  If you're using any prescription drugs, vitamins, or other medication on a regular basis, you should bring an adequate supply with you since these may not be readily available either on board the ship or in our ports of call. Over-the-Counter medications for colds, coughs, upset stomach or other minor illnesses can be purchased at the Medical Center during specified hours. In addition, the shops on board may carry some of these items.

    Should you need to store medicine that needs proper refrigeration, medi-coolers are available on board in limited quantities and on a first-come, first-serve basis. If a medi-cooler is not available, the ship’s Medical Center will arrange storage.  In addition, a small, personal-sized cooler no larger than 12” x 12” x 12” for the purpose of housing medications is permitted as carry-on luggage.  

  32. Will a Covid 19 Vaccine be required by MSC Cruises?

    Guests are not required by MSC to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Masks are optional.
