Richard Pruitt, Carnival Cruise Line’s vice president of environmental operations, launched a ship tour video ahead of Earth Day, Sustainability in Action.
“Sustainable development is everyone’s responsibility,” Pruitt said. Our guests are an essential part of this, and they respond well to it because they know they can return to the destinations they love with their children and future generations when the time comes for their next cruise vacation.”
According to Pruitt in the ship tour video, the cruise line processed 11 million pounds of recyclables in 2022. According to Pruitt, all ships in the fleet have 24-hour recycling centers.
Additionally, the video discusses Carnival’s food digester initiative that helped reduce waste by 35 percent across the fleet. During the video, the cruise line also highlights its efforts toward decarbonization, including using LNG for new ships.
