Cruise Line Takes Swing At Environmental Group

Princess Cruise Lines is fighting back after receiving a failing environmental grade for the "Crown Princess" in a recent report by the Friends of the Earth.
Tom Dow is Vice President of Public Affairs for Carnival Corporation which is the parent company of Princess -- and -- he says the company's ships meet and in some cases exceed all environmental guidelines and regulation.
Dow showcased environmental efforts onboard the "Crown Princess" while she was docked here in the city -- meantime -- Tim Vickers of the Atlantic Coastal Action Program says the company certainly has its act together.
Vickers says we could learn a few lessons from the cruise line in how to deal with the handling of hazardous waste and recycled materials.
