Öppet brev till Hansjöerg Kunze, Vice President PR & Communication, AIDA Cruises

About the Baltic sea future, and of course my children and further generations.


Attn: Hansjöerg Kunze

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

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.

In Sweden it is now illegal even for tiny leisure craft to dump sewage into the sea. This law may not apply to your company, but it gives an idea of how we look at this practice.

The Baltic sea is a bad state already and the sewage dumped from large cruise ships damages the fragile ecosystem even further. Sewage is a contributing factor to blooming algae.

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 will not go on a cruise anywhere before I find an environmentally responsible cruise line that commits to stop dumping sewage in the Baltic.

I am looking forward to your response.

Kind regards,

Jakob Molin
