FAQ

 

Who can book the Easy and Accessible shore excursions?

These easy tours are available for all guests and are wheelchair accessible. This program is designed to provide memorable, enjoyable experiences for limited-mobility guests, seniors, and anyone who enjoys a slower pace, as well as their families.

How are the Easy & Accessible shore excursions different from other regular shore excursions?

Easy & Accessible excursions are unique in that they offer:

  • Completely step-free tour routes
  • Wheelchair Accessible vehicles
  • Shorter distances
  • Slower pace
  • Accessible restrooms with wide doors along the route
  • Professional and compassionate tour guides experienced in working with senior and limited mobility clients

What type of vehicles are used for the Easy & Accessible shore excursions?

Easy & Accessible shore excursions use accessible vehicles equipped with either a ramp or lift for easy wheelchair access.

How can I trust that these tours are fully accessible?

Our Easy & Accessible shore experiences have been designed and vetted over many years by world-renowned accessibility experts at Accessible Travel Solutions and by travellers with disabilities. Routes are verified and tested consistently to meet the high standards set by MSC Cruises.

How big are the groups for the Easy & Accessible shore excursions?

To make these tours more enjoyable, group sizes are smaller than regular tours - these are not large motor coach groups. For most tours, small accessible vans are used.

How will the guide assist me with my mobility needs?

The tour guides conducting these accessible tours have several years of experience in touring with limited mobility guests and their families. They are patient, compassionate and very knowledgeable. Please note that guides are not permitted to push wheelchairs. Guests in wheelchairs must be able to self-propel or have a companion push them.

What can I expect from my Easy & Accessible shore excursions?

Accessible shore excursions are authentic experiences, designed to limit the amount of walking, without compromising on the experience. If you are asking yourself: "Will I get to leave the bus?”, the answer is “Yes!”.
While other tours labelled as “accessible” only allow you to see the destination through a bus window, MSC Cruises has partnered with Accessible Travel Solutions to offer wheelchair accessible shore excursions that include inside visits to castles, churches, museums, palaces, and historic ruins.
 

How do I make sure my mobility equipment isn't too big or too heavy for the excursion?

For each Easy & Accessible tour, the maximum combined weight allowed (equipment + mobility user) as well as maximum equipment dimension allowed (height, length, and width) are provided in their tour description notes. Please make sure to carefully check and verify that your equipment respects the dimensions allowed before booking the tour.

In which destinations can I book Easy & Accessible shore excursions?

Currently, the Easy & Accessible shore excursion program is available throughout several Caribbean and Mediterranean ports. You can see a complete list of destinations offering Easy & Accessible tours listed above.

When should I book my Easy & Accessible shore excursion?

We suggest you book your Easy & Accessible shore excursion at least 2months before your cruise in order to secure your space.

Can I cancel my booked Easy & Accessible shore excursion?

It is possible to cancel your booked Easy & Accessible tours up to 4 days prior to your cruise departure date.

Why is a minimum number of participants required?

The minimum number of participants is required to guarantee the tour to run at the individual price displayed on the website. In case the number of participants is not met, guests will be given the choice to book the tour for an additional cost, as a private tour. The individual price will then vary depending on the number of participants.
