Luxury cruise line Regent Seven Seas will implement the purification systems of Vero Water on its vessels from spring 2019 in a bid to eliminate about 2 million plastic bottles per year.
Vero features in resorts, hotels, and Michelin starred restaurants worldwide. It will also be implemented on the cruise ships in line’s sister brand Oceania.
Regent Seven Seas recently eliminated single-use plastic straws. It will become the first luxury ocean line to eliminate single-use plastic bottles as part of the Sail & Sustain environmental programme of parent company Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings.
Vero Water service is due to be implemented in 2 phases during the year. Phase One is focused on implementing the water service in suites, lounges, bars, and restaurants onboard Seven Seas Voyager (by April 5), Seven Seas Explorer (April 8), Seven Seas Mariner (June 5) and Seven Seas Navigator (June 18).
In Phase Two, passengers will be provided with their own eco-friendly Vero Water bottle which will be theirs to use for shore experiences during the voyage and to take home after the cruise vacation.
