We recently had the honour of hosting a delegation from the International Maritime Organization (IMO) on board Iona. The event, arranged in partnership with the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), marked a significant milestone in our ongoing commitment to collaborating with the maritime industry.

On Saturday 16 March, amidst the bustling turnaround activities onboard Iona, representatives from several IMO Nation States, including Brazil, Hong Kong and Pakistan, and Non-Governmental Organisations, including BIMCO and the IEC, embarked for a day-long visit.

This visit, strategically timed between IMO’s the Intersessional Working Group on the Reduction of GHG Emissions from Ships (ISWG-GHG) session and the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC 81), provided a unique opportunity to showcase our dedication to sustainability technologies and practices.

The purpose of this ship visit was to offer IMO delegates first-hand insight into the sustainability technologies and measures onboard our ships. From navigating the bridge to exploring behind-the-scenes and below deck, including the Recycling Centre and some machinery spaces.

Reflecting on the visit, EVP Maritime and Sustainability Donnacha O’Driscoll, said:

“The visit was a tremendous success for CLIA and provided an excellent opportunity for Carnival UK to demonstrate our commitment to so many key areas of sustainability, to an international audience. We look forward to hosting similar events in the future.”
