If you must cruise ... (Solutions).

In a world of crushing poverty, cruise ships are one of the most immoral forms of self-indulgence available. And cruise ships are notorious for spilling fuel and pollutants into the ocean. While the 43g-foot Royal Clipper doesn't solve the problem of material inequity that plagues the planet, it does provide a sailing experience that does not foul the seas or besmirch the skies. Sweeping its 228 passengers through the waves at 20 knots under all 42 sails (56,000 square feet of canvas), the Royal Clipper proves that windpower can replace petroleum.
