Carnival Corporation has completed a fleetwide roll out of Lloyd’s Register OneOcean’s EnviroManager+ software.  

Jointly developed by Carnival Corporation and LR OneOcean, the system will streamline passage planning with digital planning tools that include automatic route generation, as well as supporting voyage compliance with all relevant international, regional, national, and local environmental regulations.  

The system was developed during a five-year collaboration that involved senior maritime officials, shipboard crew members, company and industry environmental experts, regulatory compliance leaders, and technology developers. The software has been designed to give crews onboard ships automated tools to support passage and environmental planning, as well as to enhance environmental monitoring during voyages.  

“Complying with environmental regulations is a top priority, and it is a real challenge for the cruise industry, as regulations and requirements constantly evolve and become more complex,” said John Haeflinger, senior vice president of sustainability and maritime policy at Carnival Corporation. “As an industry leader proactively engaged in marine stewardship, we need to be confident that our operations meet all environmental requirements, including our own policies, which are often more restrictive. I am convinced that the LR OneOcean product suite is the most comprehensive and complete maritime environmental regulatory database on the market today that is integrated with an automated passage plan solution for oceangoing vessels.” 

The EnviroManager+ software provides ships’ crews with precise boundaries of over 500 environmentally regulated zones worldwide. The interface also includes the more restrictive industry and Carnival Corporation-specific environmental policies to ensure crews have a full scope of all relevant environmental rules and regulations. Any updates to policies and regulations are automatically shared via a shore-to-ship data service within the LR OneOcean digital platform.  

“Navigating the complex, rapidly changing regulatory landscape is a growing challenge in shipping,” said Martin Penney, CEO of LR OneOcean. “Operators like Carnival Corporation often cruise in areas of ecological significance and know how important staying environmentally compliant is to their guests. We applaud Carnival Corporation’s commitment to its ship- and shore-based team members, providing them with software to ensure environmental compliance in their passage planning and execution.”
