MEYER WERFT conveys cruise ship Arvia

MEYER WERFT's newest cruise ship, Arvia, is expected to leave Papenburg on Saturday, November 5, 2022 and be transferred on the Ems River to Eemshaven (Netherlands).  

After technical and nautical trials, the Arvia will set course for Bremerhaven for delivery to P&O Cruises (UK).

The new cruise ship is equipped with the cleanest propulsion system currently available to the shipping industry, an LNG propulsion system. This means that the Arvia is built to be future-proof and, in perspective, can even be operated in a climate-neutral manner using green regenerative LNG. Even today, LNG propulsion eliminates nitrogen oxides and particulate matter in addition to reducing CO2 emissions - sulfur oxides are completely eliminated. Currently, all cruise ships in MEYER WERFT's order book are equipped with this low-emission propulsion system.

Arvia, the sister ship to the Iona due to enter service in 2020, has 2,614 cabins and is designed to carry 5,200 passengers. One of the highlights on board is the SkyDome, an entertainment area with a pool whose glass dome can be opened.

The Arvia will sail the Ems towards the North Sea again backwards and with the support of two tugs. This way of transfer has proven to be successful due to the better maneuverability.

The transfer of the ship will again be carried out by the team of the pilot brotherhood Emden. The Ems pilots have been performing the maneuvers for many years. The team uses state-of-the-art technology to prepare for a realistic simulation of the Ems river passage in Wageningen (Netherlands).
