The special tour programs were developed by the Costa experts with the assistance of AISM members. 15 women with multiple sclerosis have extensively tested their accessibility. Costa guests benefit from the knowledge and experience of AISM members. You experience barrier-free excursions at a slower pace.

Neil Palomba, President of Costa cruises, explains: “This project is a real innovation in the cruise world. It is an important step on the way to involving people with disabilities and making sure that there are no more differences on board and that everyone can share the same experiences on vacation. I hope that in the future our initiative can be extended to the whole sector ”. And: "We want to quickly transfer the program to all of our ships".
