    Default Carnivals New Cruise Liners.

    The first block of the first of 3 new cruise liners for AIDA line (Another Carnival group cruise line) was laid in Meyer Werft in Pappenborg.
    What makes these different is that they are going to be powered totally by LNG.

    A follow on from the LPG powered cars, which were very popular here in Oz but not so much now.
    Conversion to LPG was a big industry up to about 10 years ago and at one time Ford were producing LPG cars instead of petrol.
    Happy daze John in Oz.
