After sea rescue in the Mediterranean: call for a Boycott against Tui? So the company is responding

against the wind for the cruise sector: “Cruise Shaming” is the keyword in this summer. Particularly older ships are spinning because of their high pollutant emissions as dirty. And port cities like Dubrovnik, Barcelona and Venice are suffering from over tourism, if there are multiple ships at the same time create and your passengers the old town floods.

But the criticism of the industry can also be different. On the weekend, “Marella Discovery has saved” in the Mediterranean sea 111 people. The migrants – including 33 children – were on their way to Italy in distress and were brought by the British cruise ship, which belongs to the Tui Group, in the port of Kalamata, the Greek coast guard announced.

Even the world’s largest tour operator, which is not only involved in Tui Cruises in Hamburg, but also Marella Cruises with the ship “Marella Dicovery”, is responding to the request of the star. “It goes without saying that we help people in distress. This is regardless of the law of the sea, a commandment of humanity.
