Default environmental concerns

I was just bashed by a coworker regarding the damage cruise ships are doing to the environment. It wasn't anything I hadn't already heard, I was just caught off guard now that I am actually going to be on one of these ships. I was thinking things had gotten better regarding dumping sewage etc. Anybody got any info on this issue. I'm not going to cancel our trip, but just want to be informed. Feel like my parade's been rained on

Princess has "Planet Princess", their environmental program. Find out more about it at their website.

Yes, some cruiselines have gotten into trouble for "dumping". I don't think Princess has been in trouble environmentally for a while.

Also, my uncle was one of Canada's foremost and respected environmental scientists and before his death in January, he had been on three Alaskan cruises in the past few years. I don't think he would have gone on those cruises if he felt the environment was being irrevokably harmed.

Do cruise ships do any more 'environmental' damage than freighters? or pleasure craft such as speed boats?

Thanks, Pea! I just read the Planet Princess information and feel better. I especially feel good that I am cruising Princess, sounds like they go to a lot of effort to be environmentally friendly.
