Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) has partnered with the World Ocean Council (WOC), an international business leadership alliance dedicated to corporate ocean responsibility.

For years, cruise lines have implemented policies and procedures to reduce the industry’s environmental impact. While CLIA members’ approximately 300 oceangoing cruise ships, expected to transport 24 million travellers this year, comprise far less than 1 percent of the global merchant fleet’s 50,000 oceangoing ships, they are developing responsible environmental practices and innovative technologies. Many cruise lines not only meet, but exceed environmental regulatory requirements in a number of areas, CLIA said.
