yep cruise ships brings nothing to the economy just pollution  .. better to fly and stay longer in a country and see more of it.. there is real action and concerns now over the proposed third cruise terminal , which is great news and more and more people are against destroying a whole bay just for royal carribean mega polluting ships .. so that is great fantastic news .. gov and royal carribean need to listen before it starts to impact them as it will

And planes don't pollute? How about the exhaust fumes and particulate fallout from take offs and landings at the airport. You've not mentioned that. How many a day? Must be getting close to 30,000 movements a day - 27,000+ Jan 2019.

It is predicted that ships coming here will have to shut down their power generators while port and use land sourced power. This is already happening in other parts of the world, so why not in Port Botany. Maybe that was redacted?

Or conveniently  overlooked perhaps.

That should read movements per month not day. My bad. It's still a lot.

I was sure you meant 30,000 movements a day but then most get flushed away, straight to Bondi.

As long as it does not float back into Botany Bay. Can’t have those nice white hulls of the cruise ships being stained while they are tied up at the new terminal.😱

Floaters can be quite pesky, especially when in the surf.

I don't swim at Sydney's beaches, haven't done so since the eighties and that was North Narrabeen. Now, I would either swim Central Coast or Sapphire Coast for beach swimming.

In 2002 the Carnival Corporation pleaded guilty in United States District Court in Miami to criminal charges related to falsifying records of the oil-contaminated bilge water that six of its ships dumped into the sea from 1996 through 2001. The Carnival Corporation was ordered to pay $18 million in fines and perform community service, received five years' probation and must submit to a court-supervised worldwide environmental-compliance program for each of its cruise ships.[24]

For dumping oiled waste into the seas and attempted cover-up Princess Cruise Lines was fined $40 million in 2016. According to federal authorities, it was the "largest-ever criminal penalty" for intentional vessel pollution. Officials said that these practices began in 2005 and persisted until August 2013, when a newly hired engineer blew the whistle. As part of its plea agreement, ships of the parent company Carnival Cruise lines were subjected to a court supervised environmental compliance plan for five years.[25]

For violation of the probation terms of 2016 Carnival and its Princess line were ordered to pay an additional $20 million penalty in 2019. The new violations included discharging plastic into waters in the Bahamas, falsifying records and interfering with court supervision

 

as you can read they are still dumping stuff at sea .. I guess to some people if you cannot see the destruction its not happening ..   only when people can see it will they believe it.. but by then it will probably be to late as with everything in Australia ..

and I bet this will happen at botany bay due to big swells  and bad winds that get much worse than these in this vid  if this happens it will end up smashing the terminal or beached

Many accidents have happened over a long period of time all over the world. I think you had better stay home Rod, the world is just too unsafe for you.

$40mil fine...is just a “drop in the ocean”  for those greedy cruise lines. No mention of Royal Caribbean , aren’t they the only ones using the Port Botany terminal , seeing that they are paying for it??????????
