Carnival Corporation reached an agreement with the Port Authority of Santa Cruz de Tenerife to be the first concession-holder to operate the Canary Islands’ and Mid Atlantic’s newest cruise terminal.

Opened in 2016, the terminal can accommodate next-generation cruise ships powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG).

AIDAnova the world’s first LNG-powered cruise ship from the corporation’s Germany-based AIDA Cruises brand will call at the terminal on its maiden voyage in December, Carnival said in a statement.

Carnival Corporation also manages two other cruise terminals in Spain, the Helix and Palacruceros facilities in Barcelona.

Seven brands from Carnival Corporation, AIDA Cruises, Costa Cruises, Cunard, Holland America Line, Princess Cruises, Seabourn and P&O Cruises UK, make port calls to Tenerife during the course of the year.

The Santa Cruz de Tenerife terminal will be the first port in the Canaries able to accommodate Carnival Corporation’s new class of cruise ships able to be operated by LNG, both in port and at sea.

Carnival currently has 11 LNG-powered ships on order for five of its nine cruise line brands, with the first ship, AIDAnova, scheduled to make its maiden call on Tenerife on December 18, 2018.
