MSC Cruises has rolled out accessible shore excursions program to five more ports this winter and three additional ports for summer 2020, bringing these tours to 20 destinations across the Caribbean and Mediterranean now.
Its goal is to ensure that guests have the most extensive variety of shore excursions possible to suit all needs. With this in mind, MSC Cruises is introducing its Accessible Tours Program, extending the availability of tailored shore excursions for those with varied mobility. This program offers the opportunity to explore a range of the world’s most sought-after destinations without having to worry about accessibility.
These tours and excursions have been created with careful consideration for safety and accessibility, allowing all guests to explore each destination in total comfort, guaranteeing that:
- Tour routes are completely step-free
- Accessible to wheelchairs wherever possible
- Only short distances are covered
- Timings are run at a slower pace
- Accessible restrooms with wide doors are planned along the route
Family members and friends can also join these inclusive tours, with the comfort of small groups led by professional tour guides experienced in working with guests with varied mobility.
“MSC Cruises is committed to offering an incredible choice of shore excursions designed to suit all tastes, giving guests the freedom to make the most of every moment ashore. We have always been sensitive to the needs of our guests and constantly strive to offer the best possible service, meeting international accessibility standards. This program is unique because, for the first time, we offer accessible tours available in both popular cruise regions of the Caribbean and the Mediterranean. By joining these tours, all guests will have the carefree opportunity of enjoying the best of every excursion,” said Jean-Pierre Joubert, MSC Cruises’ head of shore excursions, in a statement.
