Healthy Oceans Are Good for the Environment, Our Guests, and Our Business.

That's why we aspire to achieve the highest possible standards of environmental and community stewardship.

Because we strive to provide you the best vacation possible, Celebrity Cruises® cares about making positive changes in the lives of our guests and employees,
sustaining the environment, and making the world a better place.

Our Commitments

Our sustainability goals address key issues important to our business, including emissions reduction, waste, water and sustainable sourcing.

World Wildlife Fund Partnership

Our partnership with World Wildlife Fund is taking our dedication to ocean conservation to new heights.

Sustainable Tourism

We’re making it possible for guests to have transformative travel experiences well into the future by helping the destinations we visit continue to thrive.  

 

We celebrate the seven seas by announcing our Blue Green Promise℠. Thirty years ago, we launched our first environmental protection initiative, Save the Waves, and since then we’ve continued our efforts to protect one of our most precious natural resources — our oceans. Our Blue Green Promise is our renewed commitment to support resilient and sustainable ocean communities worldwide — a promise we will work to live up to every day.

Destination Net Zero

Destination Net Zero is our comprehensive vision for how we will achieve net zero emissions by 2050. We will use every tool at our disposal, including industry-leading energy efficiency and innovative machine-learning technologies to advance our path and role in achieving net zero. As part of our commitment, we plan to introduce a net zero emissions cruise ship by 2035. Destination Net Zero builds on the progress we’ve already made and will include an industry-first pledge to the rigorous Science Based Targets initiative.

Plastic Straw Free since 2019

Celebrity Cruises eliminated plastic straws fleetwide, as part of a comprehensive plastic elimination program. Since 2019, we only offer paper straws as opposed to plastic. We continued our elimination of single-use plastic onboard with features like aluminum can water bottles instead of single-use plastic water bottles, condiments packages, and others. 

Save the Waves

In everything we do, Celebrity Cruises is ever conscious of our special responsibility to protect our marine ecosystems. Protecting the world's seas and the rich marine life they support is a way of life, and a way of doing business, for Celebrity Cruises. This commitment is the foundation of Save the Waves, our comprehensive environmental protection program established by our parent company in 1992.

Save the Waves is the foundation of our environmental initiatives. It began in 1992 and evolved from a recycling program to a company-wide philosophy. It has become an integral part of each crew member's job and is the backbone of daily operations.

Go Green

Go Green is the latest addition to our existing Save the Waves program. Our new housekeeping initiative allows you to earn rewards while reducing your footprint. Opt-in for reduced housekeeping services to conserve energy and resource consumption. You’ll still experience the highest standards of cleanliness, plus the added flexibility of choosing your preferred time of service -all while traveling more responsibly.

Community Outreach & Achievement

We proudly sail some of the most environmentally-friendly ships, ensuring the beautiful places we visit stay that way.

Keeping our oceans clean doesn't just make good business sense. It's critical to the future of our planet. And you don't have to look far to find examples of our efforts on our ships.

Galapagos Stewardship

Aboard the Celebrity Xpedition®  Xploration®, and Celebrity Flora®, we've planned our entire Celebrity Galapagos experience in conjunction with the Galapagos National Park. This journey follows strict environmental guidelines, and our naturalist guides are certified by the Galapagos National Park. We've also established the Galapagos Fund, an onboard conservation program that gives guests an opportunity to participate in the ongoing conservation of the islands. The Program draws on Celebrity Xpedition guest donations, totaling approximately $150,000 annually, which is matched by Celebrity with cruise credits. Donations to this fund are used exclusively to benefit charitable organizations in the Galapagos Islands. We invite you to read more about our environmental stewardship efforts below.

Sustainability Report

Explore our commitment to maintaining healthy oceans and pristine ecosystems as we sail around the world through our annual Sustainability Report. The report provides a comprehensive update on our sustainability and ESG efforts from ship to shore.

Celebrity Cruises, along with our parent company Royal Caribbean Group, is committed to the environments and communities where we operate.

It is our responsibility to help protect and preserve the oceans and coastal communities that bring our guests so much delight. We are also committed to helping in the communities that our employees and their families call home. Healthy oceans mean that millions of people have access to food, oxygen, transportation, and – in our case – the joy of cruising into the horizon.
