Special Health Considerations

MSC Cruises is committed to providing all of its guests with an unrivalled cruise vacation. MSC Cruises will make every effort to accommodate your needs wherever and whenever possible. We can best accommodate the special concerns of our guests with advance notice. Our crew and staff will be pleased to assist in every way possible.

Personal Mobility

We advise guests using a wheelchair to travel with someone who is able to assist them both aboard and ashore. Some ports-of-call require tenders to go ashore and may preclude guests using wheelchairs from leaving the vessel; this decision must be made by the ship’s Master and is binding. Guests must bring wheelchairs for their own use.

Do you have specific diet requirements, for particular conditions and allergies or simply because you are a vegetarian?

MSC Cruises
has considered this, and has asked its Chefs to develop a variety of customized diets, designed specifically for you and your personal needs!

MSC Cruises works closely the AIC - Associazione Italiana Celiachia (Italian Celiac Association) to provide gluten-free menus in the restaurants of MSC Divina, MSC Splendida, MSC Magnifica, MSC Fantasia, MSC Musica, MSC Orchestra and MSC Poesia cruising in the Mediterranean and in Northern Europe.

Hearing Impairment

On MSC Cruises ships we are determined to make the cruising experience as enjoyable as possible for guests with hearing impairments.

Hearing impairment kits are available upon request.  Each kit is actually a suitcase filled with devices aimed to assist those with hearing disability. Through lights and vibrations, they are notified when the alarm clock goes off, when the door bells, when the phone rings and in the event of a fire, the alarm goes off to evacuate the boat. Moreover, personal wireless amplifiers to be used in the theaters and the lounges are also available. Light indicators are available in elevators.
