New Galveston Terminal

Icon will require specialized LNG fueling systems that are somewhat controversial in Port Canaveral right now.  They are new and a ship can only be home ported and fueled if the itinerary is compatible with a full voyage fuel plan including reserves.  Carnival is also placing LNG ships in PC so with two lines operating LNG ships there is some economy of scale.  If Carnival indicates an LNG ship is heading to Galveston that makes it a lot easier for Royal to place one there and vice versa.  

I Heard Port Canaveral Will Get Icon Class Because I Read  From Somewhere That LNG Come From A Barge From Georgia. So Port Canaveral Or Miami Makes A Lot Of Since. If They Can Not Refuel In Any Of Those Port They Could Have The Barge At Perfect Day At Coco Cay. The LNG Will Probably Come From A Barge Because  Having It Being Trucked From Georgia Cost More And A Barge Can Hold More.

Galveston and the surrounding area will have the personnel and infrastructure to support a LNG fueling station, and I doubt it would receive the negative reception that Port Canaveral is experiencing.  While I understand the environmental and economic benefits to LNG, I am concerned about the risk.  While it has a very safe record, the potential risk worries me.  A bad result is very unlikely, but that unlikely event could be very, very bad.  For me though, everything in life is a risk, so I would gladly (and hope to) cruise on a LNG powered vessel.  But I do think that an single accident could be so catastrophic that it would immediately end the use of LNG as a fuel, for passenger vessels anyway.

I just had another thought. Wouldn’t it be cool if maybe they brought a Celebrity ship to Galveston? At least maybe part time. Just a thought. I have no news or inside info. But I would to love to start cruising Celebrity more once my wife and are done raising the kids and travel more.

1. I believe Celebrity is coming and will use terminal 2 because RCCL still will have the use for terminal 2 based on the new contract.

2. Regarding LNG...Isn't there an LNG plant already in the Freeport area near Galveston.

3. It has been reported that the Symphony of the Seas is the ship that will be coming.
