Kick-starting cruise: Can pioneering certification enable industry rebirth?

DNV has joined forces with the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) to launch a comprehensive certification programme allowing cruise ships to resume operations from Singapore. Genting Cruise Lines and RCI are the first companies setting sail for a new age of Covid-safe operations.

For the cruise industry, charting a sustainable pathway for the future is more important than ever. The leading global cruise company Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings has embraced this and is committed to making a lasting impact on the world as responsible corporate citizens and ESG leaders with their sustainability program.
