Intercruises Shoreside & Port Services is further diversifying its shore excursion portfolio through an agreement with Intrepid Urban Adventures, provider of tours that drive positive impact for destination communities.

The initiative grows Intercruises’ product inventory in line with its commitment to implement sustainable development throughout the business.

‘We have been using the recent downtime to further look at cruise guests’ needs and the latest travel trends, with a focus on developing products that have a positive impact in the destination,’ remarked Carmen Morosan, Intercruises Global shore excursions manager.

50 locations globally

‘As part of this, we are delighted that we will be working with Intrepid Urban Adventures in over 50 locations around the world. We already have excellent local teams and products, but we can now offer even more authentic and unique shore excursions,’ she said.

Small walking tours

The majority of these excursions are small group walking tours that visit alternative, lesser known venues, ‘all of which fits well with new safety requirements as cruises return’ Morosan commented.

The agreement will give Intercruises access to the extensive Intrepid Urban Adventures product portfolio of more than 1,000 experiences, with local Intercruises and Intrepid Urban Adventures teams also collaborating to develop new products specifically for the cruise industry.

Training

Intercruises can provide cruise industry training and work with over 1,700 Intrepid Urban Adventures guides around the world for any shore excursion operated by Intercruises. 

‘There is potential for the cruise industry to drive greater positive local impact for port communities. By working with our friends at Intercruises, we can help bring more customers on a journey of local stories, local people and local impact,’ says Klaudija Janzelj, managing director of Intrepid Urban Adventures.
