German shipyard Meyer Werft floated out its 50th cruise ship, the 100 percent LNG-powered Iona being built for Carnival Corporation’s P&O Cruises. 

The vessel is scheduled for delivery during the year and will be the first of this type in P&O Cruises’ fleet.

The ship has a rating of 184,000 GRT and measures 344,5 m in length and 4 m in width, with capacity for 5,200 passengers.

The vessel left Meyer Werft’s covered building dock II and berthed at the shipyard’s outfitting pier to be fitted with its funnel cladding.

The ship will remain in the shipyard port for further outfitting work and onboard trials until its passage through the river Ems up to the North Sea, which is expected to take place end of March.
