In line with this accountability comes our commitment to preventing accidents and incidents involving pollution, reducing the environmental impact of our operations, managing waste through methods that promote recycling and reusing materials and ensuring continual refinement of our ISO 14001 certification objectives and targets.

Water Conservation & Management

Oceania Cruises has introduced the Gold Standard in still and sparkling water service on board with our new Vero Water® service. All suites and staterooms will be stocked with refillable and reusable Vero Water decanters as well as all restaurants and bars.

We have also expanded Vero service to our shoreside experience, providing guests with keepsake refillable water bottles to take Vero Water ashore with them, eliminating several million more bottles per year.

VERO Facts

Oceania Cruises became the first cruise line to introduce Vero Water, the gold standard in still and sparkling water. With the introduction of Vero, we will eliminate several million single-use plastic bottles per year from onboard use. Later in the year, we will extend Vero service to our shoreside experience, providing guests with keepsake refillable water bottles to take Vero Water ashore with them, eliminating several million more bottles per year.

  • Vero Water – eliminates 3 million+ single-use plastic bottles per year
  • 80% of all fresh water consumed on board is produced on board
  • On average, daily water consumption per guest is 30% below the daily U.S. average

Going Green Through Technology

We are eliminating the consumption of millions of pages of paper per year via new digital technology on board.

  • Interactive TV System
  • Digital Newspaper &
  • Digital Guest Survey

These new digital initiatives will help us save millions of pieces of paper and thus reduce waste and reduce our carbon footprint.
