It’s the last straw for Crystal Cruises ...

Plastic straws have been consigned to the dustbin across the entire Crystal fleet as the latest part of its Crystal Cares programme to help improve the environment.

In future, only paper straws will be available throughout the dining venues on Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity as well as on the company’s yacht, Crystal Esprit, and the Crystal River Cruises fleet.

You won’t find plastic straws on Crystal ships any more

The move coincides with last weekend’s annual observance of World Oceans Day, designed to increase awareness of the need to preserve and protect the oceans.

“Crystal has always recognised that the world we travel is precious and deserving of our utmost care, and that all measures contributing to the preservation of our marine environments can make a significant impact,” said Crystal’s president Tom Wolber.

“This initiative, as well as the others under our Crystal Cares programme, ensure that we are continuing our focus of caring for our world in meaningful ways.”

The company also recently announced a partnership with ORCA – a leading conservation organisation dedicated to the protection of whales, dolphins and porpoises – which will bring Cruise Conservationists aboard select Alaska voyages for training, research and data collection as part of its OceanWatch programme.
