Most of us are familiar with Royal Caribbean International and their fleet of cruise ships that sail the seven seas. You may not be quite so familiar with the parent company Royal Caribbean Group which encompasses several cruise lines to include:
Royal Caribbean International:
Their contemporary resort line that includes the Oasis and Quantum class of ships.
Their premium line that includes the Millennium, Solstice and Edge class of ships.
Their luxury line offering luxury small ship cruising.
A joint venture with German owned TUI AG, offering premium all inclusive cruising.
As we all know the pandemic has hit the cruise line industry hard, which cruise ships tied up or languishing in bays around the world. As a means to getting back to sailing and providing consumer confidence, Royal Caribbean Group has instituted many changes with the HVAC study and recommendations being just one of many as they get ready to welcome passengers back aboard.
“Guests can breathe easy knowing the existing heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems on Royal Caribbean Group ships continuously supply fresh, filtered air indoors. Validated in an independent assessment conducted by the University of Nebraska Medical Center and the National Strategic Research Institute, the findings were based on the scientists’ study of the HVAC on board a Royal Caribbean ship. Watch how they found that the robust system’s layers of protection make the transmission of aerosol particles (like those from a cough) between spaces extremely low to virtually impossible. In line with the Group’s mantra of “continuous improvement,” the cruise company is also adding extra measures for its HVAC systems to make for even safer and healthier cruises.”
