In a move that is set to replicate across the European fleet, Emerald Harmony became the first Star-Ship removing all single-use plastic. Guests are provided with a complementary metal water bottle which they can refill from water stations onboard the Star-Ship. Other initiatives include glass water bottles in all staterooms, using paper and bamboo straws in Reflections Restaurant & Horizon Bar. Cabin toiletry miniatures are replaced with refillable dispensers.
