Replacing plastic: The battle has begun

The latest Seatrade Cruise Review — the official publication of Seatrade Europe in Hamburg — is out with a cover story on the cruise industry’s battle to replace nonessential single-use plastics.

Different strategies are detailed, from companies including MSC Cruises and Virgin Voyages to expedition and river cruise operators and private island destinations. Each has special challenges and successes.
