Speaking of water, cruise ships have instituted a variety of measures to lessen their environmental impact. New passenger vessels employ state-of-the-art waste management systems that shred trash, compact glass and metal, and incinerate paper and plastic.
One leader in this area is UnCruise Adventures, whose ships travel to the Pacific Northwest, Alaska, Hawaii and Central America. As a member of the Passenger Vessel Association’s Green WATERS Program, the company adheres to its “leave no trace” motto on all voyages. They strive to reduce fuel consumption, conserve energy and drinking water, and decrease the use of harmful chemicals.
