Princess Cruises’ Pacific Princess wins Port of Dover award for environmental performance

15 May 2019

The Port of Dover is pleased to announce that Princess Cruises’ Pacific Princess has won its Safety Environment Awareness “SEA” Award for 2018.

Presented to Princess Cruises at the recent Seatrade 2019 Global Cruise Conference in Miami, the award acknowledges the outstanding performance on recycling rates and waste procedure compliance of Pacific Princess when calling at Dover during the 2018 season.

This year’s SEA award presentation was part of a bigger push by Dover to encourage cruise lines looking to minimise their impact on the environment whilst growing their business.  The Port exhibited at Seatrade with a stand made entirely of waste plastic collected from the world’s oceans and beaches during 2018 – the most sustainable stand ever to exhibit at the conference and fully accredited zero waste.

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.”

The Port looks forward to welcoming back Pacific Princess and Princess Cruises during the 2019 cruise season.
