Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

Our small ships run on Marine Diesel Oil, unlike larger ships that use non refined Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) which is non-refined, polluting and highly toxic. Additionally, Regular maintenance for each ship of our fleet takes place twice a year, a practice that is extremely important in reducing fuel consumption.

Single-Use Plastic Reduction: One of our guiding principles is to positively impact the areas in which we explore. That is why we are proud to have successfully completed a single-use plastic reduction program across our entire fleet, minimizing single-use plastic items. Such items include straws, stirrers, cups, lids, bottled water, among other items, as well as items wrapped in plastic; single-portion items such as butter cups, jams or yogurts. Our goal is to completely eliminate single-use plastics on board all our vessels.

We are the first cruise line to sign up to the Tourism Declares Climate Emergency initiative, which exists to enable everyone in tourism to implement the Climate Action Plans needed to halve sector emissions by 2030.

On this cruise our guests will have the opportunity to discover how the islanders have adapted their farming methods to the islands climate, including a visit to Forno, where the drop-by-drop irrigation
method is used - a technique adopted by farms on the island in order to minimize the effect of drought.

People

Our cruise itineraries take us to small islands which are not often visited by large cruise ships, and are designed to have minimal impact on local societies and ecosystems, without compromising our product quality or the guest experience.
Our cruise directors are familiar with the islands we are visiting, and they are always there to introduce you to the local producers and the traditional places to visit. This cruise offers visitors to Cape Verde a unique opportunity to step away from mass tourism and visit parts of the islands largely untouched by tourism. Our tours are run by informative local guides, and stop at locally owned restaurants, markets and shops. Our dedicated crew will source food from the islands to serve to our guests - creating not only a fantastic experience on board but ensuring we support the local economy.

5 euros from each booking is designated to the 'Variety Cares' foundation which supports initiatives striving for clean oceans, gender equality, and education for all, creating a better world at sea one cruise at a time. Projects supported by Variety Cares include beach clean ups, investments in local schools and charities, arts festivals and more.

Our guiding principle is to 'Create a Better World at Sea', which means looking to deviate away from areas of over tourism, sourcing goods locally for use on board and above all ensuring that we have a positive impact on the destinations we visit.
