Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Releases 2018 Stewardship Report

April 27, 2019 Cruise No Comments Email Email

Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. a leading global cruise company which operates the Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises brands, has published its 2018 Stewardship Report. The report highlights the Company’s progress on its sustainability goals as well as impactful initiatives underway, including:

  • Elimination of plastic straws across its 26-ship fleet and two island destinations;
  • Exciting partnerships including Ocean Conservancy, making the Company the first cruise line to join the Trash Free Seas Alliance®;
  • The Company’s Hope Starts Here campaign to reconstruct schools and critical infrastructure in Caribbean islands impacted by the devastating 2017 hurricane season.

“We are proud of our achievements to date and remain steadfastly dedicated to responsible business practices that encourage the preservation and restoration of the oceans we sail on and destinations we visit,” said Frank Del Rio, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd.  “We are committed to continually seek ways to minimize our environmental impact while at the same time provide truly exceptional cruise vacation experiences to our guests.”

In celebration of Earth Day, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings team members attended a beach clean-up at Oleta State Park in North Miami Beach, Florida, collecting 72.5 kilograms of rubbish.  This event was held in partnership with the Ocean Conservancy and Trash Free Seas Alliance®.  The Company has partnered with Ocean Conservancy since 2018, supporting a shared vision of a world with waterways, beaches and oceans free of plastic waste.

Additionally, the Alaska Raptor Center (ARC) celebrated the grand opening of its nature trail, funded by Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings, on April 20, 2019. As a special treat, the ARC’s staff brought out several of their glove-trained raptor ambassadors to greet visitors along the trail. The Company funded the development and signage for a nature trail which spans throughout the ARC’s 6.8-hectare conservation property. The Alaska Raptor Center, located in Sitka, Alaska, is an avian hospital and rehabilitation centre that in 2018 cared for over 170 injured birds of prey.

The 2018 Stewardship Report is part of the company’s global environmental program, Sail & Sustain, which reflects the company’s mission to continually improve its sustainability culture through fresh innovation, progressive education and open collaboration.  The 2018 Stewardship Report can be found on the Company’s website at
