Phase 1 development of SafeAshore™, a new system designed by Intercruises to help further enhance the safety of shore excursion guests and guides, has been completed. Following five months of development, trials were successfully carried out in August 2017 with during shore excursions in Marseille, where the system is live and being used by the local Intercruises team.

SafeAshore™ enables Intercruises and cruise line teams to track tour groups’ locations at any time and provides a single and secure communication channel for instant messaging between guides and the Intercruises team. The system is also pre-loaded with information to aid incident response, including local emergency phone numbers and a map highlighting nearby ‘safe places’, such as police stations or hospitals. View the SafeAshore™ video below for further details.

Going Forward

SafeAshore™ is being updated with information for other destinations as the availability of the system is expanded across France and the Mediterranean during 2017, with implementation in other regions planned for 2018.
