Cruise Line Ends Dolphin Encounters

The Radisson Seven Seas cruise line has announced that they will no longer offer dolphin encounter tours at any of their ports of call. This sends a clear signal to the travel and tourism industry that entertainment does not have to come at the expense of marine creatures. According to Darius Mehta, director of Radissončs land programs: `Sadly, under the guise of communing with nature or advancing our scientific understanding, dolphin encounter programs too often overlook the way dolphins actually exist and interact with each other in the wild ... while we will continue to employ programs that allow our guests the wonderful experience of observing dolphins in the wild, wečre opposed to those that interfere with dolphins' natural behavior.'  The decision came after discussions with WSPA (World Society for Protection of Animals). Radisson Seven Seas Cruises is located at 600 Corporate Drive, Suite 410, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33334
