We are committed to preserving a beautiful world for future generations to enjoy. By focusing on environmental sustainability, PROTECTOURS contribute to that vital goal. 70% of the tours involve activities with zero environmental impact – like walking, cycling, or kayaking – while others make a direct contribution to the environment, for example, tree planting or beach cleaning. So, you can enjoy original insights into the natural world while preserving its beauty and helping to ensure a greener future!

A world of amazing experiences

PROTECTOURS offer you unforgettable experiences in close contact with nature and communities in a variety of environments around the world. Local guides, with an expertise in wildlife or traditions, will help you save baby sea turtles in the Caribbean, clean the desert in Abu Dhabi, explore Iceland by horseback, or immerse yourself in Corfu’s beautiful countryside and the magical world of bees.

MSC Cruises and the environment

Our love and respect for the marine environment are reflected in our certified eco-ships, with their innovative systems for energy saving, waste treatment and recycling. Naturally, our commitment to the environments extends to our onshore activities too. PROTECTOURS is not only a way to offer our guests a variety of eco-friendly shore excursions, but also a means of encouraging our onshore partners to develop tours that pay ever more attention to environmental sustainability. Just one example is that no single-use plastic or other items are accepted on these tours.

The Pools and Aqua Park

The outdoor Aqua Park and pool are mid-ship on deck 14. This is the main pool and it includes several different areas, along with two whirlpools. As well as the pool itself, it has tiled splash areas, water jets and fountains along with two whirlpools adjacent to it and a further two overhanging the Aqua Park area from deck 15.

Vertigo is MSC Preziosa’s 120 metre long and 13 metre high water slide with a diameter of 900mm and starting from deck 18 and exiting on deck 15.

Featuring twist and turns and average speeds of 6 metres a second, certain sections of the slide have translucent bands of colour which catch the light producing strobe effects, whilst a nine metre long transparent stretch of the slide overhangs the side of the ship providing those who dare to keep their eyes open with a spectacular view of the sea below. Vertigo is for people over 120cm tall and opening times are dependent upon itinerary and season.

The Aqua Park is served by the outdoor Saphir Bar and Turquoise bar.
