The Port of Dover has presented Princess Cruises’ ‘Pacific Princess’ with its Safety Environment Awareness ‘SEA’ Award.

This year’s SEA award, presented at the Seatrade 2019 Global Cruise Conference in Miami, is part of a bigger push by Dover to encourage cruise lines looking to minimise their impact on the environment whilst growing their business. The award acknowledges the outstanding performance on recycling rates and waste procedure compliance of Pacific Princess when calling at Dover during the 2018 season.

Sonia Limbrick, head of cruise at Dover Cruise Port, said: “I was delighted to present Princess Cruises with our SEA Award, which shows our joint commitment to driving the sustainability agenda within the industry.

“The award, now in its second year, also recognises and reflects the strengthening partnership between the Port and our wider cruise line partners, shipping agents and waste handlers in working to improve environmental performance.”

Dover exhibited at Seatrade with a stand made entirely of waste plastic collected from the world’s oceans and beaches during 2018. It was the most sustainable stand to ever exhibit at the conference, with zero waste.
