We are dedicated to continuous improvement and plan to implement the training program fleet-wide, including on our newbuild MSC Euribia.
Fleet-Wide Implementation: Expanding the Training Program
As we expand the training program fleet-wide, I am excited about the potential impact it will have on increasing awareness and minimizing harm to marine mammals. The training program has already shown its effectiveness during the successful trial on MSC Bellissima. Now, we are ready to implement it across our entire fleet, ensuring that all ship bridge officers receive the necessary education about marine mammals.
This fleet-wide implementation is a significant step towards our goal of reducing ship and whale collisions.
Here are three key aspects of the training program’s effectiveness:
Comprehensive Education: The program provides comprehensive education to ship bridge officers, equipping them with the knowledge and skills needed to identify and avoid potential collisions with marine mammals.
Increased Awareness: By expanding the program fleet-wide, we can significantly increase awareness among our crew members about the presence and behavior of marine mammals during voyages. This heightened awareness will help minimize the risk of harm to these precious creatures.
Continuous Improvement: As we implement the program across our entire fleet, we are committed to continuous improvement. We will closely monitor the effectiveness of the training and make any necessary adjustments to ensure its ongoing success in safeguarding marine life.
Through the fleet-wide implementation of our training program, we are taking proactive measures to protect marine mammals and promote sustainable practices within the cruise industry.
MSC Euribia: Integrating Whale Collision Training Into Newbuilds
