US cities charting a course to restrict cruise ships from ports — here’s what it could mean for our coasts

Cruise ships burn heavy fuel oils that contain harmful chemicals and substances like sulfur and heavy metals, which can leak into the oceans. If a cruise ship has a faulty system or improper repair work, oils can leak from these areas and penetrate the oceans, causing pollution and threatening marine life

          Cruise ships should deploy the use of green renewable energy solutions.

            The leakage of these oils into the oceans poses a threat to marine life, and faulty systems or improper repair work on cruise ships can exacerbate the problem.

              @george_kariuki pollution in our oceans pause as a great risk to marine life,hence measures should be taken to prevent this happening.

              The restriction of cruise ships from ports in the US could potentially have both positive and negative impacts on our coasts. On one hand, it could help reduce environmental pollution and protect marine life. On the other hand, it could have negative economic consequences for the tourism industry and the communities that rely on it. It will be important for decision-makers to carefully consider all factors and potential impacts before implementing any restrictions.

                    This is a good call that will protect marine lives and the marine ecosystem from the harmful effects of oil and Sulphur leaks in to the oceans

                      The direct consequence of this I'd like to see happen is the development of renewable energy driven ships
