Princess Cruises goes green

Date Posted: 23 Jan 2007

Environmentally-conscious cruise lovers will be delighted to hear that Princess Cruises has signed an agreement to make its presence in the port of Los Angeles greener.

The company has said that it will now switch its engines off when in port in LA and will plug in to "clean" electrical power supplied by the port.

"We're extremely pleased and proud to be expanding our commitment to using shore power wherever the landside technology is available, which will now include the Port of Los Angeles next year," said Alan Buckelew, President of Princess Cruises.

"We're dedicated to making this connection programme a success, just as we're dedicated to the local air quality issues that are important to the community."

The Princess Cruises ships will become the first cruise liners to use shore power. LA is the only port that currently plugs in container ships too.

Custom-built, state-of-the-art electrical connection cabinets have been added to Princess Cruises' ships to enable the shore power hook-up.

In another first in September last year, Princess Cruises became the first cruise line to convert to all-electronic tickets, meaning guests receive their travel documents earlier.

What our customers say


"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
