ESL/EFL Test #860 "Wonder of the Sea", answer 3

This amazing floating city has something to acclimatize every age and life-style to the huge variety of activities that are offered. A morning newspaper is delivered to each stateroom, detailing the current events for the day, with the time and location of all.

Correct answer: (a) acclimatize

Hi,


This amazing floating city has something to ......... every age and life-style to the huge variety of activities that are offered.

Is it possible that to should in fact be through in the above sentence?

I think the people on that boat are not supposed to get used to ''the huge variety of activities'', but with their help (the help of those activities) they can get used to/acclimatized to living on that boat.

Am I terribly wrong?

Thanks

Many thanks
