Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. (RCCL) has started working closely with their shorex operators to foster good practices that minimize negative impacts on the environment and increase operational efficiencies. By 2015, RCCL plans to have 50% of all their shorex verified to an internationally recognized sustainability standard by a third party. Intercruises is committed to supporting the STEP project to achieve RCCLs objective, while at the same time developing sustainable shorex standards, aligning with globally recognized good practices and achieving eco-certification.
