Open letter to Michele Andjel, Head of Public Relations, P&O Cruises (UK)

Is sewage intentionally dumped into the Baltic?

2015-08-31

Dear Michele,
 
After learning that it is common practice for cruise ships to empty their septic tanks into the Baltic sea I am chocked.

There are free services for handling septic waste in many Baltic ports: Stockholm, Tallinn, and Helsinki to mention a few. Cruise lines should plan routes to take advantage of these facilities instead of dumping excrements and waste in open water. 

If your company is to make a profit from cruises on our beloved Baltic sea, you should act responsibly and take care of your waste like you do with any other trash.

Cruise ships that dump sewage in the Baltic should not be welcome as the environmental impact is too big to accept in this sensitive environment.

Does your company’s ships dump sewage into the Baltic sea? If you do, how do you motivate this?

I am looking forward to your response.

Kind regards,

Nina Maskulin
