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.

‘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.”

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