The particle counts on the Princess Cruise Emerald Princess were as high as 157,716 pt/cc on the lower stern during the time the ship was at sea.
Kendra Ulrich, senior shipping campaigner at Stand.earth said the “most shocking finding from this study is that pollution was often highest near the stern of the ships, where passengers are encouraged to exercise.”

Stand.earth says that in comparison, particle counts in China in 2009 were 30,000 pt/cc on a busy street and 8,000-30,100 pt/cc in Santiago, Chile, between 2011-2012."
