Carnival Corporation is building seven LNG powered ships for its Carnival, Costa and Aida brands, including the world’s first fully LNG powered cruise whip. The company has also contracted Shell to supply the fuel through its LNG Bunker Barge project. We take a look at vessel designs and find out how the LNG supply chain will work across the brands’ different itineraries.
MSC claims that its newest vessel, the Seaside, “rewrites the rule book of cruise ship design, blending indoor and outdoor areas to connect you with the sea like never before.” With features including a seafront promenade circling the ship and a multi-storey aqua park, we find out what exactly that means for the passenger experience. We also explore the business concept of Virgin’s new cruise venture, Virgin Voyages, which sets out to shake up the sector with an adult-only, superyacht inspired format.
Also in the next issue, we take a look at American Cruise Lines’ new riverboat class and Brisbane’s plans for a new mega cruise ship terminal, and we find out about the challenges of sourcing food locally and responsibly. Plus, we hear from Dynama about the implications of upcoming European data protection legislation on the cruise industry.
