carnival_hawaii1We are aiming to generate 1,000 signatures by the end of the year, which we will then send to the 5 largest cruise ship companies, Carnival Corporation & plc, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., Star Cruises, MSC Cruises and Celestyal Cruises. If you are a UK resident you can also sign our petition to John Hayes MP, the UK’s Minister of State for Maritime.

To Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Star Cruises, MSC Cruises and Celestyal Cruises

We, the undersigned, are concerned that cruise ship companies are using flags of convenience to circumvent tax and employment rights. We believe that cruise ships, like all companies, must be subject to proper regulation.

Currently the cruise ship industry is poorly regulated, which results in damage to the environment, unfair employment practices and curtails real benefits to local destinations. We are particularly concerned about the poor working conditions for many employees on board, including long hours, low pay and harsh working conditions. 

We call upon all cruise ship companies to stop using Flags of Convenience and to work with international organisations to create a cruise industry regulated by negotiated trade union agreements, which are based on respect for basic human rights and a fair wage.

We also demand that the cruise ship industry immediately reduces the environmental impact of their vessels, pay fair prices for the goods and services they commission, offer fair employment to all their staff, and be open and transparent about their operations.

We will urge tourists to avoid going on a cruise until the industry improves its employment practices, environmental impact and is open and transparent about its operations.
