Cruise Lines Extend Suspension in the U.S. Through October

The Cruise Lines International Association has announced its members have agreed to voluntarily extend the pause on operations from the U.S.

If you didn’t already know four Carnival-owned brands will be getting the world’s largest passenger capacity cruise ship. Aida Cruises, Costa Cruises, P&O Cruises and Carnival Cruise Line will all be getting at least one of these new generation ships.

The yet to be named vessel will be a new LNG class which was part of a much bigger order by Carnival with the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany. The ship will be liquid natural gas (LNG) powered which means up to 80% reduction in nitrogen oxide emissions and 20% reduction in CO2 emissions.

Rendering Sneak Peak:

Construction of the vessel started in February 2017 with the first piece of steel being cut at the German shipyard. Before the ship is completed at the end of 2018 several major construction milestones will be hit including the keel laying and floating out onto the water for the very first time.

The ship will be the most advanced ever built for the Aida Cruises and the largest passenger ship in the world. We’ll have to wait and see how the cruise line plans on fitting over 6,000 passengers on to an 183,900 gross ton vessel. Further features and details will be released over the coming months.
