Stepping up into the rigg or climbing on the masts is possible for passengers any time, as long as they tell someone from the crew. That makes sense for taking photographs from a special angle and it should be no problem for you, as long as your feet are not too wide, or you are able to make a wide jump, just hanging on your arms.
In any case you will always be secured by a strong rope, that is fixed to your body and also to a rope next to the masts.
