Preface: De Minimis…

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, cruise ships collectively discharge over one billion gallons of sewage into the sea each year.

In response to this, many countries have enacted laws and regulations that govern how large-scale cruise ships must behave when disposing of human waste. Under most jurisdictions, it must be treated before it can be released, and then only in deep waters, typically more than three miles away from any known shoreline.

Regardless of the law, shit is shit.
