Entertainment Cruises operates in some of the largest waterways in the United States. Ten of our vessels cruise the tributaries of the Chesapeake Bay, the largest estuary in the United States. Our fleet of seven boats in Chicago cruises Lake Michigan which is part of the largest fresh surface water system on the planet. And, we are committed to protecting our valuable resources by adhering to Coast Guard regulations and reevaluating our purchasing decisions.
Each of our vessels runs on Ultra-Low Sulfur Diesel, which substantially lowers emissions from the engines. In addition, Entertainment Cruises has received EPA grants to accelerate our transition to even more environmentally friendly Clean Diesel engines. These engines further reduce emissions and increase fuel efficiency.
Onboard, we are focused on water conservation through a number of initiatives.
Across our fleet and in our offices we have recycling programs and use recycled paper wherever possible, including our restrooms and our boarding tickets.
