"The Miami-based cruise company said Tuesday that the vessels will be powered by liquified natural gas, considered to be the cleanest-burning fossil fuel."

"With capacity for 5,200 passengers each at double occupancy, the two new vessels will also be the largest for the cruise line, which already has a fleet of 25 ships plus the Carnival Horizon, set for delivery in 2018. "

"The largest cruise ships now sailing are Oasis of the Seas, Allure of the Seas and Harmony of the Seas, operated by Royal Caribbean Cruise Line. Each carries 5,400 at double occupancy and uses conventional diesel power."

Does anyone remember the argument over LNG terminals back in the 70's and 80's? And that LNG carriers were simply floating bombs?

Get ready for Deja Vue all over again...
