Princess Cruises receives NOAA award

Date Posted: 22 Jan 2010

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.
