    The 6,600 passengers on board the world's largest cruise ship produce a lot of trash. We went inside the secret, crew-only deck of Royal Caribbean's Symphony of the Seas to see how crews process millions of pounds of water, food, and dry waste each year.

Moral of the story: When a large company says they aren't doing something that is destroying the environment, they are.

The amount of wasted food is insane. Who the hell sits down for a meal and finishes with more food still on the plate than they actually ate?

There's a rule on many buffets in my country. "No leftovers". If you have leftovers you will pay. That's a good rule to implement to reduce the waste of cruise ships

On my one and only cruise I ever took, I was shocked at how much food waste I saw! I literally saw scores of people fill up a ginormous plate, take one bite, then walk away!

It’s craaaaaazy that they would ever consider dumping trash right into the ocean. The fine shouldn’t be in cash. They have plenty of money. It should be a ban of your business. That would be the ultimate deterrent.

I was living un Buzios, Brasil when a cruise dumped cleaning wastes in the océan. The people at the beach (tartaruga beach, a place full of tourists) ended at the hospital and 2 of them lost sight. If there is an industry I'm quite happy to see struggle is the cruise lines. I'm sorry for the hundred of jobs that will be lost but cruises suck.

I actually can’t remember the last time I didn’t finish a meal.

Conditions looks MUCH better then I’d have ever imagined on the very bottom floor of a massive ship like this. I also didn’t know about the water bottle thing, a clever solution to a massive task.

I see a huge problem with expressing penalties for businesses only in monetary fines. Their analysts can trim this into a simple cost benefit calculation. "Dumping trash into the ocean has a x% chance of being detected and would roughly cost us x amount of $. Whereas correct recycling would cost y times as much. So we just dump it in the ocean." No. Penalties must be expressed in actual bans or limitations of operation in an area and/or time frame. This way businesses would have a real incentive to act right.

I worked on a cruise ship and I can tell you I saw huge piles of garbage being thrown out at 2 am into the ocean on a regular basis.

I used to have to board a Norwegian cruise ship every Saturday for my company to service their gift shop (when they docked). The gift shop used to give me their recyclables every week that the workers went through, which was only around a dollar at most. After a couple months, the checkpoint to board/disembark told me I couldn't take it off the ship. I couldn't believe it, as I knew they would just throw it away.

On the next episode: See how "US" ships aren't actually registered in the US to hire cheap labor to run the ships.

its really nice seeing how they put so much effort to reduce waste. more people, not just cruise workers, should put this effort into protecting the environment

When I was on a cross Atlantic voyage in the late 1960s I remember seeing some food waste going into the ocean. Orange peels were most recognizable. There didn't seem to be much of this organic waste going into the water, so I'm not sure if all the organic waste went overboard.

I was on a Carnival cruise, the Fascination with a balcony suite with my wife of 17 days. We were on our private deck enjoying the moonlight over the horizon and then we hear glass on a steel floor look down over the side of the ship and a little behind us, and there we saw garbage being dumped on the floor and then swept into the ocean by two wide push brooms. We saw wine bottles, plastic containers from the kitchen. When we told the Captain next evening, he said that it never happened. He said the Glass is all ground up to a powder and released out the bottom of the ship. Our eyes DON'T AND DIDN'T LIE TO US.

So they were dumping everything for 30 years before the the technology.

The waste management on that ship is amazing! I really hope more cruise ships go this way going forward.
