Whether it’s recycling more than 325 tons of materials each year or utilizing advance technology to conserve energy, at Disney Cruise Line we’re dedicated to minimizing our impact on the environment.

Chief Electrical Engineer Alessandro and Environmental Officer Karl receive the Port of Vancouver’s 2015 Blue Circle Award on behalf of Disney Cruise Line.

It was an honor for us to have these efforts recognized recently by the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority. They awarded Disney Cruise Line with the Port of Vancouver’s Blue Circle Award for its EcoAction Program, which celebrates our environmental stewardship and the use of shore power when the Disney Wonder is in port.

The Disney Wonder docked and connected to shore power in the Port of Vancouver.

The Port of Vancouver is equipped with shore power technology that allows us turn off the ship’s engines when it’s docked and “plug in” to the port’s power source allowing all onboard services to run as normal. By connecting to shore power, we’re able to save fuel and reduce air emissions. Three of our Disney Cruise Line ships are specially designed to use shore power when visiting other equipped ports.
