Big Stink Over Cruise Lines' Sewage

Run this search, and Royal Caribbean pops up on Google as the number two pick.

A non-profit group, Oceana, bought ads on Google that criticized Royal Caribbean for its treatment of sewage at sea. In return, Google pulled Oceana's ads. Google's Press releases provide no insight. Oceana, though, has plenty to say.

Royal Caribbean is noticeably silent, although the company touts $600,000 in new grants to marine organizations. Oceana, is not among them, however.

It's a problem that the U.S. Coast Guard has dealt with before. Maybe it's not just a big stink over nothing.

Watch where you swim.
