Join us on World Oceans Day for an exciting digital rally to demand cruise companies start respecting the health of passengers, crew, port communities and the environment before returning to our seas! A line-up of inspiring speakers will be announced soon. Bring your best protest signs and be ready to take action online.
- The COVID-19 crisis has thrust the cruise industry into the spotlight for knowingly putting public health at risk, long after the warning signs were clear.
- But this isn’t the first time the cruise industry has put profits before people. Over the years, cruise companies like Carnival have polluted our air, water, and climate, illegally dumped waste, plastic and oil into our oceans, avoided paying almost all U.S. taxes, and sidestepped U.S. environmental and labor regulations. They have repeatedly made choices that put the health of passengers, crew, port communities and the planet at risk.
- Now as the industry pushes to start sailing again soon, we’re calling on the largest cruise companies to commit to protecting the health of their customers, our communities, and the planet – not just return to pollution as usual.
- Join us on June 8th - World Oceans Day - for an online rally to show cruise companies that communities around the world have had enough.
- Cruise ships must stop polluting our air, water and climate by committing to achieving zero emissions by 2050, immediately switching to the cleanest fuels available, ending the dumping of untreated or poorly treated waste in our oceans, and publicly reporting on their performance.

- And one more thing! We’re hoping to e-deliver tens of thousands of signatures to cruise majors from people opposed to their polluting ways during the rally on June 8th.
