Reuters is reporting that Carnival Corp’s first LNG-fuelled vessel, the AIDAnova, has been launched in Germany and begun its maiden voyage – a seven-day holiday cruise around the Canary Islands and Madeira.

Carnival has been adding LNG-fuelled vessels to its fleet as part of an ongoing enhancement strategy aimed at reducing its carbon footprint. 20 new LNG-fuelled vessels are scheduled for delivery to the company between 2018 and 2025.
