Meyer Werft Lays Keel for AIDAnova

first_imgMiami-based cruise company Carnival Corporation has held a keel-laying ceremony of the first ship of its new liquefied natural gas (LNG) generation, AIDAnova, which will be delivered by Meyer Werft Papenburg in fall 2018.The 180,000 gross ton AIDAnova, which will be the 13th member in AIDA’s fleet, will be traveling Madeira and the Canary Islands for seven-day cruises from December 2018 in its first season. German cruise line AIDA Cruises ordered the ship in summer 2015, as part of a deal for two next-generation cruise ships.With the ceremony, held at Seatrade Europe in Hamburg, the company officially launched the construction of its seven next-generation cruise ships that will be fully-powered by LNG.“Today marked a significant milestone in the construction of this next-generation of Carnival Corporation ships featuring our ‘green cruising’ design, which will be the most environmentally friendly ships in our company’s history,” Arnold Donald, president and CEO of Carnival Corporation, said.Pioneering a new era in the use of low-carbon fuels, these new ships will be the first in the cruise industry that can use LNG to generate 100 percent of their power both in port and on the open sea. The ships, with delivery dates between 2018 and 2022, will be built by leading German and Finnish shipbuilders Meyer Werft and Meyer Turku.Following the introduction of AIDAnova in 2018, Carnival Corporation’s Costa Cruises brand will debut the industry’s next cruise ship that can be powered completely by LNG on the open seas in 2019 – the first steel-cutting ceremony for this ship is scheduled at the Meyer Turku shipyard in the coming week.LNG-powered ships for Carnival Cruise Line and P&O Cruises (UK) will follow in 2020. Costa Cruises and AIDA Cruises will each receive an additional LNG-powered ship in 2021, followed by an additional LNG-powered ship for Carnival Cruise Line in 2022.last_img read more

Lakers’ Anthony Davis shares his favorite Kobe Bryant story

first_imgMORE: Damian Lillard pays Kobe the competitor a fitting tributeDuring an Olympic matchup with Nigeria, coach Mike Krzyzewski called Davis’ number. Team USA had built an enormous lead, so this was a rare opportunity for Davis to log a few minutes and boost his stats. Unfortunately, he made a key mistake before he even reached the floor.”I was just so happy to be around all these guys, you know, all these future Hall of Famers, and I forgot to put my jersey on before the game,” Davis said. “So when Coach K called me to get in the game, I’m going up to the table and I’m about to take my warm-up shirt off, and I look down, and there’s just a white T-shirt underneath. So I kind of creep back to the bench, and Coach K asked me like, ‘What are you doing?’ And I kind of whispered to him because I didn’t want these guys to hear me. And I was like, ‘I forgot my jersey.'”I go sit down, and Kobe, he got on me. Like, I can’t say what he said, but, you know, basically like, ‘Why are you not going in the game? This is your chance.’ I’m like, ‘I don’t got my jersey on.’ And there’s a picture where he’s kind of looking into my warm-up. And he said some more things after that. So now before every game, I kind of just check to make sure I got my jersey on to this day. So he told me how to get dressed for a game, basically.” Long before he became one of the best players in the NBA, Anthony Davis was just a 19-year-old trying to find his place on Team USA. Davis was a member of the gold medal-winning squad back in 2012, easily the youngest player on a roster loaded with superstars like LeBron James, Kevin Durant and, of course, Kobe Bryant. After Friday night’s game at Staples Center, which featured multiple tributes to Bryant, his daughter Gianna and seven other people who died in a helicopter crash on Sunday, the Lakers forward was asked about his favorite Kobe memory. Davis instantly pulled out a story that he will never forget. View this post on Instagram Look very closely at this photo…notice anything?
