Royal Caribbean Cruises has announced that it can now offer its customers and a total of 1,400 sustainable itineraries through the Caribbean and the Mediterranean are available for reservation.
Offered by tour operators with sustainable certification, these special tours are available in all brands that are part of Royal Caribbean Cruises and incorporate unique experiences around the world, from kayaking along the west coast of Mallorca or touring a cenote in Cozumel to visit the grape harvests at Pizzorno Winery in Montevideo, Uruguay.
The initiative began as part of the company’s 2020 goal with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to offer passengers 1,000 tours managed by tourism operators with sustainable certification according to the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) created by the United Nations.
By reaching and exceeding the target almost a year earlier than expected, RCL reinforces its commitment to operate in a sustainable manner and offer its customers responsible options while on the ground.
In 2016, RCL announced an alliance with WWF to take its sustainability performance to a higher level. This alliance set ambitious goals in three key areas: emission reduction, sustainable food supply and destination protection.
