DNV GL to class advanced environmental cruiseship duo for Royal Caribbean DNV GL to class advanced environmental cruiseship duo for Royal Caribbean

DNV GL is to class two LNG-fuelled cruiseships to be built by Meyer Turku for Royal Caribbean, the first in the cruise line’s new Icon class.

The two vessels, due for delivery in 2022 and 2024, feature several cutting-edge technologies designed to reduce environmental impact, including dual-fuel engines, fuel cell technology and air lubrication to minimise hull friction.

Knut Ørbeck-Nilssen, CEO, DNV GL – Maritime, said: “These ships are set to push the envelope of what we can expect from a modern cruise vessel in terms of environmental performance, and we are looking forward to supporting Royal Caribbean and Meyer Turku to realise a successful delivery.”

The final concept for the first vessel is currently being discussed and the concept design phase is expected to start in the coming months. The initial building phase of the first ship will begin next year, with keel laying planned for October 2019.
