Onboard education: lecturers, display boards and flyers on climate change, habitat and wildlife preservation, environmental hazards.
Your ship reduces single use plastics in food preparation and presentation, uses watermakers /provides water bottles, supports sustainable co-operative coffee, offers beach clean up days, has management beyond IMO guidelines, and sources 90% sustainable seafood..
Very best wishes for now
