The recently issued annual “Stewardship Report” from Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd includes some detail of its efforts and successes in implementing efficiencies across its fleet of 38 cruise ships. Fuel consumption for 2009 is reduced by 3.7 per cent. The reduction is not absolute but expressed as a ratio to the number of available passenger cruise days (APCD). The saving is partly due to the addition to the fleet of two new ships. These efficiency successes follow a number of years of measuring, testing and deploying a variety of systems including improved hydrodynamics, propeller, propulsion and hull designs. Examples of savings are widespread. Three ships have thin film solar panels on their top decks which provides electricity, on other ships incandescent bulbs are being phased out in favor of LEDs. Many of the ships have the ability to use cold sea water cooling when cruising in the Arctic or Baltic to reduce production of chilled water. Royal Caribbean’s goal for 2010 is to further increase its efficiencies.
