The 183,900gt AIDAnova is the first of three new ships to be built for the AIDA brand and is the largest cruise vessel ever to be built in Germany. The ship has accommodation for more than 5,200 passengers in some 2,500 cabins.
The vessel is powered by four dual-fuel Caterpillar engines which can operate entirely on LNG, both at sea and in port. The total machinery power output is more than 60 MW, of which 37 MW will be used to propel the ship at speeds of up to 17 knots.
The AIDAnova is the first of the new Helios-class of vessels being built for the AIDA brand. Two more ships in the same class are due for delivery at the end of 2021 and 2023. Six other ships are being built for Carnival Corporation (Miami) brands by Meyer Werft in Papenburg and Meyer Turku in Finland.

Germany’s Meyer Werft in Papenburg has delivered the world’s first LNG-powered cruise vessel to AIDA Cruises, a Carnival Corporation & plc company, following successful sea trials in the North Sea.
