Princess Cruises receives NOAA award

Date Posted: 22 Jan 2010
Category:
Princess Cruises has been honoured by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) for its efforts to enhance the tracking of global weather patterns.

While cruise lovers relax and explore the world aboard its vessels, the company's ships send weather observations to the NOAA thereby helping it track the patterns.

The organisation awarded the Weather Cruise Ship Company of the Year gong to Princess Cruises after its ships made 20,139 weather observations, more than any of its peers.

Coral Princess made the largest contribution after achieving 5,142 observations for the voluntary reporting system, which involves air temperature, humidity, wind direction and strength, sea waves and swells.

"With Princess ships sailing around the globe to all seven continents, we're in the unique position to be able to take weather readings in a multitude of destinations," said Princess Cruises executive vice president Jan Swartz.

Princess Cruises is part of the Carnival Corporation & plc group of companies, which recently announced a multi-million dollar donation to Haiti's earthquake victims.

What our customers say

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
