Meyer Werft says LNG-powered Arvia to leave Papenburg on Saturday

Germany’s Meyer Werft is expecting the second LNG-powered vessel it built for Carnival Corporation’s P&O Cruises, Arvia, to leave Papenburg on Saturday.

Following the trip via the Ems river with the support of two tugs, the cruise ship should arrive in the Dutch Eemshaven port in the North Sea on November 6, according to a statement by Meyer Weft.

After technical and nautical trials, the LNG-fueled Arvia would set course for Bremerhaven for delivery to P&O Cruises, it said.

Meyer Werft launched this LNG-powered ship, the sister vessel to Iona, in August.

UK-based P&O Cruises expects the vessel to set off on its maiden voyage from Southampton in December 2022.

Its maiden voyage would be on a route to the Canary Islands followed by a winter season in the Caribbean, the firm previously said.

The LNG-powered newbuild measures over 180,000 GT, is 344.5 meters long, and 42 meters wide. It has 16 decks, and can accommodate around 5,200 passengers in 2,614 cabins.
