The company is working to achieve zero waste across the Royal Caribbean Group fleet. Currently only 0.50 pounds of waste are sent to landfill per passenger each day — 80% less than the U.S. average on shore.
Company’s current operations and announced sailings to date continue building momentum for ongoing restart of cruise vacations, as part of overall goal to return nearly 65% of capacity to begin the New Year.

Innovative health protocols include fresh air in all public spaces, industry-leading virus neutralizing air filters, virtual queues, reduced ship capacity, regular virus testing for Crew, thermal monitoring cameras and leading partnerships with AtmosAir Solutions and EcoLab.
The Company also unveiled its redesigned Sail & Sustain program which is structured around five pillars: Reducing Environmental Impact, Sailing Safely, Empowering People, Strengthening our Communities and Operating with Integrity and Accountability.
Newly announced goals and aspirations build on company’s achievement of 2020 sustainability goals a year ahead of schedule, with additional progress details expected to be released in its annual Sustainability Report later this summer.
