US-based operator Oceania Cruises is to reduce its use of plastic water bottles by over three million per year. Developed in partnership with still and sparkling water provider Vero Water, the initiative is part of Oceania Cruises’ Sail & Sustain programme.  

As part of the brand’s OceaniaNEXT initiative, six of its ships will be outfitted with Vero Water’s still and sparkling water distillation systems beginning in April. Riviera, Marina, Regatta, Sirena, Nautica and Insignia will all feature the new systems, and in the send half of the year, all Oceania Cruises guests will be provided with Vero Water’s glass bottles with the aim of ultimately eliminating the use of plastic bottles onboard.   

“By introducing Vero Water to the Oceania Cruises experience, we are not only taking a quantum leap forward environmentally, but we are also providing our guests with the gold-standard of still and sparkling water,” said Bob Binder, president and CEO of Oceania Cruises.
