Naysayers who label cruise ships as nothing more than floating vessels of pollution were silenced by Royal Caribbean Cruises when the brand was named one of the most ethical companies.

Well done, Royal Caribbean Cruises!

The cruise line was the only leisure and recreation company to make the 2019 World’s Most Ethical Companies list assembled by the Ethisphere Institute – a global leader in defining the standards of ethical business practices.

It was also Royal Caribbean Cruises’ fourth consecutive time receiving the award and was delivered due to the brand’s work in improving communities such as those in the Caribbean affected by hurricanes in 2017, building capable and empowered workforces and fostering corporate cultures focused on ethics and a strong sense of purpose.


Richard D. Fain, the cruise line’s Chairman and Chief Executive, believes the honour reflects the brand’s commitment to demonstrating these values every day.

“We recognise that corporate responsibility and accountability is increasingly driving decisions made by our guests, business partners and our employees.”
