United States-based cruise company Carnival Corporation, the world's largest travel leisure company, has ordered a dual fuel cruise newbuilding that is capable of running on liquefied natural gas (LNG) for its P&O Cruises brand.
The contract with German shipbuilder Meyer Werft for delivery of the 180,000 gross tonne newbuilding in 2022 is similar to an earlier P&O Cruises sistership order for delivery in 2020.
The new vessel will feature an exclusive "green cruising" design where it can be powered by LNG both while in port and at sea, it says.
In total, Carnival Corporation has agreements in place with German and Finnish shipbuilders Meyer Werft and Meyer Turku to build eight LNG-powered cruise ships across four of its 10 global cruise brands.
The delivery dates for these vessels are between 2018 and 2022 – two for AIDA Cruises with expected delivery dates in 2018 and 2021, two for Costa Cruises with expected delivery dates in 2019 and 2021, two for P&O Cruises UK with expected delivery dates in 2020 and 2022 and two for Carnival Cruise Line with expected delivery dates in 2020 and 2022.
