It’s a fabulous cruise. Good room, good ambience and a lovely ship!
Easier said than done when it’s a global problem. Equally if the Philippines looked after their citizens better then they probably wouldn’t be willing to work on the cruise ships for the low wages that most get. It’s all government, but that’s life. People only pollute at all because it’s the easiest route.... nothing is perfect
In that case government legislation needs to be changed fast in order to deter the economies of these dinasaurs.
The real problem is that cruises are only so appealing because hotels on land are taxed so much more and therefore there is a standard that can be offered on a largely tax free cruise ship at a much lower price than a land based hotel. It's a great example of how government legislation influence way of life in a dramatic way....
I can't imagine why anyone would want a holiday in a ship that looks like a floating battery-hen barn. To be confined in this vessel with over 4,000 other passengers is my idea of hell. I always said cruises are bad for your health, they are definitely bad for the environment. The Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Union (NABU) has announced their 2011 “Dinosaur of the Year” award to the Cruise ship industry. NABU President Olaf Tschimpke claims cruise ships emit particle pollution equivalent to 5 million cars driving the same distance as the cruise ship travels. For all would be cruise passengers.... find something better & less damaging to the environment to do. Cruises are from a bygone era. I just can't see the fun in paying loads of money to go on a cruise with 4,000 plus other people in the sea, just look what happens. What is commendable is the 70 year old guy with two hip replacements & a knee replacement who climbed Everest
