I think its digusting that the people who have answered this question have a blatant disregard for the environment, does the recent flooding in the UK or the deaths in Europe from the extreme heat make you want to think we can help to slow down this process. Major industries are making changes to reduce carbon emissions why cant the individual care as well.
What a load of b-------- this carbon footprint is!
It's like buying a white rhino horn, then telling everyone you've adopted a penguin at London Zoo to make up for it. Still, if it makes you feel good............
I'm not sure but a lot less than flying or so I have heard.
Don't know and POSITIVELY don't car.
Couldn't agree more. You've been brainwashed by the media and other morons. I can't think of anything more unbelievable than that mankind can do anything to change this planet's weather pattern. Global warming is as natural as global cooling. You live on an ever changing planet travelling through an ever changing universe. Get used to it.
Ships now, especially the new super liners are being more scrutanized because of these very questions. They have far less impact on the environment than they ever did before. Water and sewage is now treated (and in some of the newer ships, purified) before it goes back into the sea. Much of the materials onboard are recylced and each ship now carries an 'Envornmental Officer'. Cruise companies have done a fantastic job of becoming more green, more so than many land resorts in recent years. On most ships even bins in passenger areas will say 'food waste only' and 'glass' etc... Your cabin bins, when emptied, are also seperated for different recylceable materials. It's an awful job but there is a team of people that do it. Any ship not complying with the latest environmental regulations would be heavily fined.
Who cares!!!, it's just an excuse for governments to charge us more tax.
