Luxury cruise line Regent Seven Seas Cruises will implement Vero Water’s purification systems on its ships from spring 2019 in a bid to eliminate around two million plastic bottles each year.
Vero currently features in hotels, resorts and Michelin starred restaurants worldwide, and will also be implemented on the ships in Regent’s sister brand Oceania Cruises.
“Regent is committed to providing an unrivalled experience that includes serving our guests the very best tasting water on their voyage,” said Jason Montague, president and CEO of Regent Seven Seas Cruises. “In addition, the Vero water purification system helps reduce our carbon footprint and sustains our beautiful natural resources.”
Regent, which recently eliminated single-use plastic straws, will be the first luxury ocean cruise line to eliminate single-use plastic bottles as part of parent company Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings’ Sail & Sustain environmental programme.
“We are delighted to be a part of the preeminent luxury guest experience onboard Regent Seven Seas Cruises,” said David Deshe, founder and president of Vero Water. “It’s truly a privilege to partner with a world leader in luxury cruising and an organisation that is committed to pioneering environmental stewardship in the travel industry. Working together, we anticipate preventing millions of single-use plastic bottles from ever being produced, shipped and ultimately ending up polluting the environment.”
