   April 15, 2022 ,   Cruise Industry

MSC Cruises announced that there were 1,390+ shore excursions available to book for passengers sailing this summer season.

This number is the most the company has ever offered.

MSC's new extensive program features something for every kind of traveler, from families with kids, and solo travelers to those wishing to visit bucket list attractions. Options include extended stays ashore/shorter half-day highlights.

Passengers can once again explore ashore in all destinations, subject to regulations by local authorities. Guests can plan trips ahead of time and benefit from up to a 20% discount when booking before departure. Pre-booking guarantees a space on the most popular tours and entry to some of the world’s most popular attractions.

Passengers may also opt to book an Explorer Package: 3 top excursions at a great price available pre-cruise/onboard.

Marialuisa Iaccarino (MSC's Head of Shore Excursions) said they were dedicated to offering an outstanding range of high-quality shore excursions to passengers, so they were proud to be offering the widest range ever this summer.

"Shore excursions give guests the freedom to make the most of every moment ashore during their holiday – to take in local cultures, taste local flavours and see local landmarks. Everyone is looking for something that interests them, and this is why it is so important that there’s an excellent variety to choose from, so there’s something perfect for everyone.

"Guests can expect quality and value, comfort and convenience as well as the ultimate peace of mind when they choose to book an excursion with us.”

Included in the extensive range of the 2022 MSC Shore Excursions are PROTECTOURS, first introduced by the cruise line in 2020 and designed to give guests insights into wildlife and nature while preserving the surrounding environment. ~70% of PROTECTOURS feature low impact transportation like walking/cycling/kayaking and many make a contribution to the environment via supporting species/habitat protection.
