"Over the weekend, police in Hong Kong fired tear gas and non-lethal ammunition at protesters at two of the city's train stations, and Hong Kong International Airport canceled all departures today as more than 5,000 protesters gathered in the airport's public areas.

These events follow nearly five months of protests in Hong Kong over the suspected revocation of freedoms of Hong Kong citizens by the Chinese government. 

While the prime fall/winter Hong Kong cruise season is still months away, several vessels are scheduled to call on the city in the next few weeks, including Royal Caribbean's Voyager of the Seas (August 14, 21 and 25); Princess Cruises' Majestic Princess (August 31); and Viking Cruises' Viking Orion (September 19 through 21).

"In the wake of a multimillion dollar fine levied earlier this summer against Carnival Cruise Lines for repeated environmental violations, the town of Bar Harbor is looking to the cruise industry to pay for monitoring the town’s air quality.

Town Councilor Gary Friedmann said he contacted Carnival Cruise lines to ask them to pay for the program. He said roughly a third of the nearly 180 ship visits scheduled for Bar Harbor this year are by Carnival ships or other lines owned by the same parent company."

"An Italian official announced this week Venice would begin rerouting cruise ships away from its historic city center.

Some ships will be redirected to dock at other terminals in the lagoon, including Fusina and Lombardia, starting next month, Danilo Toninelli, the Italian minister of infrastructure and transport, said at a Wednesday transport committee hearing, according to CNN and The Financial Times.

By next year, he said he expects a third of cruise ships will be rerouted."

Royal Princess was issued a notice on July 15 for a May 29 occurrence in Skagway.

Achee said every violation was air emission-related.

Both Norwegian Cruise Line Holding and Princess Cruise Line were penalized last year, according to the annual Cruise Ship Air Compliance Report.

[Juneau to have first ambient air study in over a decade]

Princess Cruise Lines and its parent company, Carnival Cruise Lines, pleaded guilty to violations this year and were ordered to pay a $20 million penalty, according to the United States Department of Justice. That penalty was related to illegal dumping and other environmental violations.

Two notices of violation were issued after Aug. 8 last year, and Achee said additional violations from earlier this year are under investigation. The DEC would not release information about possible violations or enforcement action until a notice has been issued. "
