MSC Cruises unveiled its summer 2022 program of shore excursions with strongest ever focus on sustainability.

More electric and hybrid shuttle buses will be used for guests to and from ports in Denmark, Finland, Norway, Spain and Sweden.

Low carbon footprint excursions will include 150 bicycle tours in 21 countries and more sustainable shore excursions called ‘Protectours’ that MSC Cruises first introduced in 2020.

Up to 70% of Protectours will have a lower environmental impact due to an increase in walking, hiking, bicycling, canoeing and kayaking options.

‘Protectours’ will be available at 20 ports which is set to grow to up to 90 destinations by the season’s end.

Marialuisa Iaccarino, Head of Shore Excursions, MSC Cruises said: We need to demonstrate leadership by ensuring that we meet the expectation of travellers who are more aware and engaged in sustainability matters.

“At MSC Cruises we are determined to prove that the industry is a positive and engaged player in driving sustainable tourism.”

MSC Cruises’ summer 2022 program will havenearly 1,400 tours, its largest offering to date.

Northern Europe will host 640 different excursions, the Mediterranean 550 and the Caribbean 200.

Guests who book any MSC Cruises’ summer 2022 shore excursions will benefit from a price reduction of up to 20% if booked in advance.
