by Asa Sargeant | May 5, 2022 | Cruise Industry News | 0 Comments

We’re now in May and so it is time for cruise industry news Apr 2022. Here we look back at a month which saw the return of Seatrade Cruise’s highly-anticipated Global event. Then we look at NCLH’s attempts to reach net zero carbon emissions within the next 28 years. Finally, we then turn our attentions towards the first NFT* collection for the cruise industry – also featuring Norwegian Cruise Line.

Read our cruise news update for March 2022.

Seatrade Cruise Global 2022

The premier event for cruise returned with a bang in April. We’ll be bringing you much more coverage on this in the days and weeks ahead. We were lucky enough to have a team in attendance and it was well worth the trip! Read about theICEway’s experiences at STC Global over the years.

NCLH Aiming For Net Zero Carbon Emissions By 2050

This piece from Travel Weekly is on Norwegian’s commitment to achieving net zero emissions.

The owner of Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises also committed to develop greenhouse gas reduction targets. One key driver to achieve net zero is the development of alternative fuels.

Cruising’s First NFT Collection Unveiled By Norwegian Cruise Line

Seatrade Cruise News published this piece on NCL’s NFTs at the beginning of April. The cruise line is embracing the metaverse with this move, partnering with Italian artist ‘Peeta’. As you can read in the NCL Newsroom, his NFT collection was auctioned on April 13th and sold out in 20 minutes.

*For those not in the know, NFT stands for ‘Non Fungible Token’. An NFT is similar to cryptocurrency (i.e., Bitcoin) but cannot be traded or exchanged. Instead, it is a digital asset that represents real-world objects. In the case above, NCL’s NFTs represented art pieces. NFTs can be bought and sold online and this is frequently done using cryptocurrency.
