AIDAnova is the world’s first cruise ship that will run on LNG and was christened in August this year. In fact, as NABU said, AIDAnova is the only newly built cruise ship that uses LNG.

The gigantic cruise ship will start its maiden season with voyages around the Canary Islands. However, before going to the Canary Islands, the ship will go to Hamburg, as on December 2, it will visit the Hanseatic City on the Elbe.

AIDA will take over the new ship from the Meyer Werft shipyard on 15 November 2018, in Bremerhaven. AIDAnova is 337 meters long and 42 meters wide, while it will be able to accommodate 6,600 passengers.
