Cruise operators are finding imaginative ways to attract new passengers: special cruises for families, cruises for shoppers and even cruises for chocolate lovers.
And now they are making cruising cleaner and cooler, by powering their ships with super-chilled natural gas. Carnival Corporation has ordered another five LNG-fuelled ships for delivery over the next six years, while Swiss-based MSC Cruises has said it could add four gas cruisers within a decade.
Carnival will launch the first fully LNG-fuelled cruise ships in northern Europe and the western Mediterranean in There are already other types of ship powered by LNG, ranging from tug boats to ocean-going tankers.
The LNG will be delivered by special refuelling ships.
Yet despite these high-profile moves by cruise companies, LNG remains an emerging transport fuel. To make the use of LNG more widespread, energy and logistics companies need to work together to ensure the supply infrastructure, and the trucks and ships that will use it, are in place at the same time.

After a detailed information session and safety briefing — and a stretching exercise to help limber up — team members went to work cutting and piling an invasive cane species that has taken over parts of the refuge.
Using loppers and saws, volunteers cleared sight lines in the cane so visitors can more easily see the birds, alligators and other wildlife that call the refuge home. The Sabine refuge is in our footprint, so in addition to learning about the refuge and doing a bit of work, we took some pride in helping make things better for future visitors.
