Carnival delivered two vessels to Turkey for recycling
Carnival Corporation has signed agreements with EGE CELIK and SIMSEKLER, recycling specialists, to dismantle and recycle two retired ships: Carnival Fantasy and Carnival Inspiration.
The decision is part of the company's plans to balance the fleet with the planned phased re-start of cruise operations and to generate cost savings.
The cruise company has partnered with the environmental non-profit Bellona Foundation and the specialized ship recycling experts Sea2Cradle to develop a method for ship recycling.
“Our highest responsibility and top priorities are compliance, environmental protection, and the health, safety and wellbeing of our guests, the communities we visit and our crew. That commitment extends to our cruise ships, starting from the moment a ship becomes part of our fleet and continuing all the way through to its retirement," said Chief Maritime Officer of Carnival Corporation, Bill Burke.
