P&O Cruises’ LNG-powered cruise ship, Iona, is getting closer to delivery, as it is scheduled to arrive in Rotterdam, where it will enter dry dock for inspection work early this month. Most recently, the vessel underwent its final outfitting in Bremerhaven. The passage from Bremerhaven to the Netherlands will also be used for technical and nautical test runs in the North Sea. It is one of the first ever cruise vessels powered entirely with LNG.
