"The 'Voyage to Well Being' was such an inspiring vacation that I signed up my entire family for the next year before I left the ship! What a fantastic way to combine enlightening seminars with interesting ports of call while avoiding the hassles of transportation and the search for quality food. And as an added bonus--the opportunity to form friendships for a lifetime!"
Elizabeth S., Washington, DC

We are happy to announce that MSC Cruises will be offering a wholesome vegan lunch or snack on fifteen popular tours. These fifteen special tours must be pre-booked and pre-paid by January 25, 2019 – they cannot be booked on board. For detailed descriptions and rates for these options, please click here. If you decide to make a reservation, you will see a link to easily book the excursions of your choice in the paragraph under the heading "Excursion Booking Information" below. We expect that these will fill up quickly, so don’t delay!

In addition to the fifteen shore excursions mentioned above, MSC Cruises offers a variety of shore excursions at each of the ports of call. You will find a wide choice of relaxing, natural and cultural tours suitable for older and younger guests, as well as more active and sports-oriented excursions. Click here for the descriptions, rates and duration of all of the tours offered during our March 3-14, 2019 cruise.

Please note: Only one excursion may be booked in each port. Rates are subject to change until payment is received and tour reservations are confirmed. Most of these do not include lunch, but keep in mind that with the exception of the fifteen tours that specify a vegan lunch or snack, any tours that include lunch will be “standard fare.” Also, there is no way to know what time any particular excursion will begin until you get on board.

Excursion Booking Information

The fifteen excursions with a vegan lunch or snack must be reserved by January 25, 2019, and they must be prepaid. These fifteen have a code ending in “HOL.” They cannot be booked on board. They may be cancelled up to January 25, 2019 for a full refund. If cancelled after that time, they will be considered under full penalty. There is a link to the MSC shore excursions request form in the paragraph below. Requests for shore excursions other than the fifteen with a vegan lunch must be submitted by February 20, 2019 and can be cancelled or changed up to 48 hours prior to arrival in the port of call where the tour is scheduled; after that a 100% penalty applies. (These can also be booked on board, as long as there is availability. The vegan tours MUST be pre-booked.)

When choosing your excursions from the lists (see the links in the paragraphs above to access the lists), please make a note of the codes, prices, and titles of the excursions you are interested in. To complete the shore excursion request form, you will also need your booking number, which can be found on your cruise invoice. Once you have chosen your tours and are ready to submit your request, please click here and complete the shore excursions request form. You will receive a confirmation within 7 days.

Prices and availability are subject to change prior to confirmation. All prepaid, confirmed excursions will be added to your cruise booking record and will be reflected in your ticket documentation. Any pre-purchased shore excursion cancelled by the guest after the deadlines noted above will be considered under full penalty. Any shore excursion cancelled for any reason by the cruise line will be fully refunded by the MSC Cruises USA office.
