Carnival Vista gets the green light for environmental measures

Carnival Vista gets the green light for environmental measures

Carnival Vista, the newest ship in the Carnival Cruise Line fleet, has received Lloyd’s Register’s ECO Notation designation, marking the first Carnival Cruise Line ship to achieve this distinction.

The notation recognizes that the cruise line designed, built and operates Carnival Vista in a manner that exceeds current maritime statutory environmental regulations, Carnival said.

Carnival Vista was engineered to reduce emissions and meets all current regulations for nitrous oxide and sulfur oxide discharges as well as particulate emissions through the use of low-sulfur fuel, particulate filters and exhaust-cleaning systems. The ship also has the first Intelligent Power Management System installed on a Carnival vessel, which optimizes diesel engine operational settings to reduce emissions and conserve fuel. In addition, Carnival Vista has a steam-turbine generator that recovers excess steam produced by the exhaust gas boilers while the ship is underway.

Other shipboard systems that contribute to Carnival Vista’s reduced environmental impacts include an advanced wastewater treatment system and energy-efficient LED lighting throughout the vessel.
