Attn: Vanessa Picarello
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.
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.
Can you assure me that your company's ships will always use the free sewage treating services in ports to keep the Baltic clean?
I am looking forward to your response.
