Cruise lines going "Green"

Many cruise lines are making changes to help the environment.

Adding recycling centers all around the ship helps reduce waste on each ship.

Adding G E's alternative engine technology to their newest ships has reduced emissions by at least 80%.

Princess Cruise Line has started plugging into electrical power at port in San Francisco, Juneau and Seattle.

Norwegian Cruise Line introduced a recycling program to take all the used cooking oil (15,000 gal) to convert to biodiesel fuel.
