The increasing size and number of ships has brought environmental challenges, greenhouse gas emissions, waste disposal, water use and pollution, and marine degradation. A study backed by British Airways suggested the environmental impacts of cruises include the impact of ship construction and port infrastructure and the impact of travel to join a cruise, and the logistics of supplying it.
