Welcome to episode #88!
We have a fantastic show for you today!
Last week, Royal Caribbean announced an brand new class of ships that will be coming in 2022 and 2024. What is unique about this announcement is that these new ships, the Icon Class, will be power by liquefied natural gas (LNG) and fuel cell technology. This is the first ever passenger cruise ship line to bring to the cruise industry a clean burning energy proportion system.
On top of that, they will be testing fuel cell technology on their Oasis and Quantum class ships to starting in 2017.
We have invited Matt Hochberg of Royal Caribbean Blog onto this week's show to discuss this "iconic" news and speculate the impact of this announcement on the cruise industry, refueling stations, testing procedures, possible of fuel surcharges and more.
Definitely, this is probably the biggest change and announcement that the cruise industry has seen in 2016. We will be watching this closely and keep you updated as information becomes available.
Happy Cruising!Tommy & Scott
