Our Commitment To Safety and The Environment
The safety and security of our guests and crew is our top priority. We meet, and often exceed, U.S. and international regulations that govern our operations as we sail the world’s seas. Our officers undergo extensive training, including exacting instruction at our corporate parent’s Center for Simulator Maritime Training in Almere, Netherlands.
All of our onboard medical facilities meet or surpass standards established by the American College of Emergency Physicians. We are inspected regularly by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as part of its Vessel Sanitation Program.
We’re equally passionate about the environment. Princess has invested millions of dollars in state-of-the-art technology and equipment to protect the oceans, marine life, and air—and each of our ships has an Environmental Officer on board. We meet the strictest regulations set forth by the International Maritime Organization and the U.S. Coast Guard. Princess pioneered the use of shore power in port, which lets us turn off our engines and plug into power supplies on land. And our next class of ships will be powered by eco-friendly liquefied natural gas (LNG)!
