We are all aware that climate change is an issue in our lives and the need to be more sustainable is ever growing. This is why many cruise lines have taken the initiative to make themselves ‘greener’ and even strive for carbon neutrality in the coming years.
One area of luxury cruising which is gaining more and more international attention, growth, and funding is sustainability. "How can a cruise be sustainable?" you may ask. Well, each year, more cruise lines are looking to develop new ways of cruising which are more environmentally friendly. After all, cruising is a fantastic way to feel at one with nature and the ocean, so why not try to do this as gently and sustainably as possible?
PONANT is one such cruise line constantly looking to better their methods of sustainable cruising.
The tourism industry as a whole is evolving and adapting to accommodate our changing perception of the Earth and how we travel around it. Travel is evolving – for the better. Many cruise lines are beginning to look towards a more sustainable future; environmentally, economically, and culturally. While this might not be a priority for some, we at Panache are interested in how this might change the industry, and how major luxury cruise lines will approach and adapt to this new consumer demand.
