Our ability to offer fantastic guest experiences relies on the clean and healthy marine environment and well-being of the destinations we visit.
Protecting Our EnvironmentSustainability Efforts
Water Conservation & Management
71% of the planet is covered in water, so we have strict discharge policies and use the latest technologies to treat all wastewater generated on board.
A rigorous and progressive waste management program ensures that our ships take advantage to recycle and reduce waste to landfills.
Fuel & Energy Efficiency
As leaders in the cruise industry, we believe it is our obligation to do our part to help mitigate actions that may influence changes to our climate on a large scale.
EnvironmentalOfficers & Crewmembers
Every ship sails with an Environmental Officer (EO) whose job includes the implementation, training, oversight and verification of shipboard environmental compliance, in addition to providing shoreside assistance for developing environmental policies and procedures. The EO is also available on board to answer guests’ environmental questions, provide hands-on crew trainings and help ensure crew stay on course with the ISO 14001 program.
Prior to assuming their shipboard duties, all crew members learn the basic requirements for ensuring environmental compliance through our Environmental Familiarization Training. Each crew member also receives specialized environmental training that is appropriate to their individual job and responsibilities.
