The ship is only around a year old.
The 337-metre long MV AIDAcosma cruise ship has docked in Valletta, making this ship the longest ever vessel in Malta’a maritime history to ever arrive in the country.
The ship is also the world’s first cruise ship ever to operate with low emission liquefied natural gas.
“MV AIDAcosma also has a shore power connection, which almost reduces her emissions to zero in suitably equipped ports. The port of Valletta will be such a port as of 2023”, Transport Malta expressed.
The cruise ship currently sails under the Italian Flag and is only just around a year old, having been built in 2021.
