Safety On Board
All cruise ships are designed and operated in compliance with the strict requirements of the International Maritime Organization, the UN agency that mandates global standards for the safety and operation of cruise ships through adoption of treaties, regulations and resolutions, codified in the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Convention.
Safety-related regulations and requirements are rigorous – and ships often go substantially above and beyond what is required, for example carrying backup mechanical, navigational and safety provisions. Ships crews undertake extensive training, certification, drills and scenarios for emergency situations, including the evacuation of a ship. All cruise ships have lifeboats, life rafts and life preservers for every person on board as well as additional capacity.
Why should I cruise?
For those who wish to see the world in a relaxed and fun way, enjoying surroundings that are as gorgeous as the destinations they visit, cruising is a great choice. As our lives become ever more hectic and fast-paced, holidaymakers are choosing cruising as a wonderful alternative to stressful airport travel, multiple hotel bookings and the uncertainty of not knowing exactly what you’re getting. MSC Cruises prides itself on its traditional heritage and ensures that each one of its fabulous cruise liners pays testament to the style and hospitality that Italy is renowned for. As cruising changes, travellers change. Today, MSC welcomes a diverse array of passengers on board. Honeymooning couples take advantage of all our extra services, from in-cabin chocolates to aperitifs and à la carte dining. Active families make the most of our Children under 18 cruise free (when sharing with 2 paying adults, port charges still apply) offer and our day-long schedule of children’s activities with qualified supervisors. Groups of friends can get together and relax or join in excursion packages. Solo travellers are guaranteed to make friends as they meet like-minded passengers on a themed cruise or on a friendly group day out. With all main meals, entertainment, port charges, gala dinners, Captain's cocktail party and Children's club included in your cruise fare, a cruise holiday, surprisingly, is ideal for those seeking style on a budget.
