The MSC Cruises trial is an annual plastic packaging recycling initiative. MCS cruises separately collect plastic packaging on board and cruise ships dock at Italian ports to direct the collected waste to the nearest recycling facilities.
After the operational costs are deducted, the additional revenue, that is generated, will be given to charity (Italian Red Cross).
