AIDAnova on debut visit to Funchal todayThanks to Jaime for alerting the blog to the debut visit to Funchal by the AIDAnova, which is on its maiden voyage. The ship is notable as it is the first cruise ship in the world that can operate completely using liquefied natural gas (LNG).
The AIDAnova has over 2,600 passenger cabins, with a gross tonnage of over 180,000, a length of 337 meters and a width of 42 meters. The full spec is on a PDF here: AIDAnova spec
The ship arrived in Funchal at 18:30 on last night, coming from Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, and will remain in Funchal until 23:59 tonight, when it will sail to Santa Cruz de Tenerife, in the Canary Islands.
