Click the video to learn more about Mardi Gras, the first LNG cruise ship in North America.
We support the adaptation of alternative fuels and are proud to be on the forefront of advancing LNG as an alternative fuel source for the cruise industry – an innovation that supports our sustainability goals and reduces our green house gas emissions. One of the keys to establishing LNG as a standard for powering cruise ships in building out an extensive, safe, and reliable infrastructure across the globe for this advanced fuel technology.
Expected to join the fleet through 2025, 6 of which are already in operations.
We began the implementation of our LNG vision by using LNG in port. In 2015, AIDA Cruises’ AIDAsol made history as the first cruise ship in the world to be supplied with power by an LNG hybrid barge while in port in Hamburg, Germany. In 2018, AIDAnova became the first 100% LNG-powered cruise ship.
In 2020, Mardi Gras became the first LNG-powered cruise ship in North America. The ship operates from Port Canaveral, Florida. New terminal facilities were built at Port Canaveral and are under construction at Port Miami.
