Travelling by sea

Technological developments offer new opportunities for cruisers with lower fuel consumption: some charterers are committed to modernising their fleets, as part of an overall eco-friendly policy.
A liner with ISO 14001 certificationItalian shipping company MSC Cruises holds various certifications for its cruise liner Le Poesia: ISO 14001, CleanSea2 and CleanAir.
Le Poesia has an innovative hull coating that reduces resistance in the water and therefore lowers fuel consumption. The ship offers eight-day cruises in the Mediterranean, from June to November, leaving from Venice and passing through Marseilles. The whole fleet of cruise liners has a higher-performance carburation system, energy-efficiency mechanisms and processes and recycles its waste.
