On Shore with MSC

MSC Cruises offers 2,000 shore excursions across its fleet that you can book on board or in advance through the MSC website (booking periods vary by itinerary). Passengers can arrange excursions like a sightseeing tour of Dublin's cobbled streets, a vineyard tour and wine tasting in Montevideo, Uruguay, or horseback riding in Cozumel, Mexico. You may use MSC's shore excursion finder to pinpoint the perfect excursion for you, depending on your port of call.

Note: Excursion options vary by port and itinerary and require different levels of physical exertion. Shore excursions are not included in your cruise fare, though discounted rates are offered for children. If you wish to modify or cancel your shore excursion, you must do so 48 hours prior to the ship's departure date (if prebooked) or 48 hours prior to the excursion (if booked on board) to receive a refund.
