Responsible tourism: Greek Island cruising holiday

Environment

Responsible travel is one of the pillars our company is built upon. All of our travellers are provided with information regarding Responsible Travel at all stages of the booking process and while travelling with us. Our leaders are also trained extensively in Responsible Travel and will advocate for this throughout our trips.
Travelling by small ship has a much lower impact on the environment and specifically, on the towns and rural areas that we visit. Travelling this way will help us to reach smaller and less visited islands rather than going to the popular islands of Greece that are already impacted by large numbers of tourists.
Rubbish is segregated on board in food waste, paper, plastic, aluminium and glass. After, they are given to shore facilities where available. There is also a sewage treatment plant on board. Every passenger receives a water bottle to reduce plastic cups. In addition to water bottles the ships are equipped with FW evaporators (reverse osmosis systems) that produce fresh-potable water that is triple filtered.
Bio-degradable soaps are being used on our ships. We also follow the eco-friendly system for towels due to the amount of water used to wash towels that have only been used once is overwhelming. If passengers are happy to reuse their towel for another night they hang it up, if they would like to replace it stays on the floor.

Community

Compared to large ship, all-inclusive touring, small ship cruising gives many more opportunities for our clientsí money to be spent in local communities. We donít include all meals so there will be opportunities on most days for passengers to experience local cuisine and dine in local establishments. Our leaders are local so will be able to make recommendations spreading the business around in any town we visit at meal times.
On this itinerary we will be visiting islands that do not see a lot of tourism and are off the beaten path such as Amorgos and Sifnos. We will also embark on a morning tour by boat to the ancient UNESCO listed site of Delos. We will walk around and explore these awesome ruins with local guides, who will explain some history and why this is one of Greece's most significant archaeological sites. We will also learn about local pottery and have a workshop and demonstration at a family owned pottery lab.
We have a Destination Management Company in Greece to manage our touring operations in the country. The DMC will employ local people and will allow us to ensure that our responsible tourism standards and philosophy is upheld in Iceland. The company is following the International Labour Organisation (ILO) guidelines and fully Maritime Labour Convention (MLC) compliant whereas the rights of the seafarers are safeguarded. There is no discrimination on the gender of the seafarers and best candidate is being employed in each position.
