Cruise ships play an outsized role in burning heavy fuel oil, the dirtiest fossil fuel on the planet — and one that can cause extreme damage to the marine environment during an oil spill.

From cruise ships to container ships to fishing vessels, the global shipping industry significantly impacts the ecosystems in which it operates.

Carnival Corporation — the largest company in the cruise ship sector with 10 subsidiary brands — is particularly problematic. On the surface, Carnival says sustainability is one of its core values. Its actions expose this statement as nothing more than rhetoric dressed in superficiality.
