Disney Cruises Docks in Vancouver BC; Mickey Flunks His Environmental Report Card
A lot of the tourism folks in Vancouver and Alaska are most likely all atwitter about this Disney news:
For the first-time ever, Disney Cruise Line will offer Alaskan cruises during a four-month season of seven-night sailings aboard the Disney Wonder in summer 2011. Combining the natural wonder and adventurous spirit of Alaska with the unparalleled, family-friendly experience provided by Disney Cruise Line, the Disney Wonder will depart out of Vancouver, B.C., calling on popular ports such as Juneau, Ketchikan and Skagway.
But what the press release doesn't mention is the big F grade that Disney recently received from the Friends of the Earth's first ever Cruise Ship Report Card. In it, Disney ranked the dirtiest, while Holland America was the best. You can read the full report here in a link included in TheTyee.ca.
