Taking a cruise may not seem so glamorous after realizing how much wastewater is produced by each ship. According to a recent article, "Tide Rises Against Cruise Industry Pollution":

In a week, a large ship (carrying 3,000 or more) can generate 210,000 gallons of sewage, also known as black water.
