Cruise ship ranking 2020
Overview of the cruise lines present on the European market
Cruise ships have experienced an enormous boom over the last years. The corona pandemic has hit the cruise industry hard - as well as any other touristic business. However, the remaining goal has to be to establish a business model that is complies to the Paris climate goals as well as the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). In order to achieve those goals, the cruise industry has to switch to emission-free drive technologies until 2050 at the latest.
NABU has summarized the requirements for climate compatible and sustainable cruises by 2040 in a vision. The shipping companies listed below were rated according to the extent to which they were already implementing the short-term climate protection measures by 2023.
