Impacts /Interactions for Cruise sector

Although modern ships have significantly reduced their environmental impacts relative to their size, cruises remain a major source of air, noise and marine pollution. 
However, while the capacity of the biggest new boats – which can accommodate up to 8,000 passengers, equivalent to the size of a small Mediterranean town – is a key factor behind the environmental impacts of the industry, smaller boats can also harm the marine environment.
