Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) stayed true to its pledge to replace all single-use plastic bottles across its fleet by January 1, 2020, making it the first major global cruise company to take such a major step towards sustainability.
The change comes as the brand’s next move towards a more eco-friendly future after NCL’s partnership with JUST Goods, Inc. and will allow NCL to replace over six million single-use plastic water bottles each year.
“This is a very special and very proud moment for us,” said Harry Sommer, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line. “As a leading cruise line, we are thrilled to make such an impact by eliminating single-use beverage bottles across our fleet. It’s just one of the ways we are working to preserve our oceans and the destinations we visit.”
So what’s next for NCL? Watch for the discontinuation of single-use plastic shampoo and conditioner bottles, something that the cruise liner hopes to achieve by late 2020.
