Why do you think that? Ships don't have to be refueled at their home port they can be refueled where the LNG barge is. No?

As mentioned in a previous post, the only way to resupply at the moment is the barge that also resupplies Mardi Gras. Until the resupply locations improve,  she will likely take advantage of the weekly visit by the LNG barge. It could be that by the time Icon sails things could be different. This only applies to the US East coast, things are a bit different in Europe.

Doesn’t Shanghai have ship LNG?

Maybe it will go to China.

Wonder and Spectrum should be enough for that market.

One of the icons will end up in Asia ,there’s 1.4 billion Chinese 

China is an over-saturating market.

Maybe if you look at wonder how it’s more westernised than Asian with Playmakers,Johnny Rocket .

It maybe  just temporary for China??

She was built for China. The fact that she's more westernized than Spectrum only means that there's not enough demand there for the confidence to deploy her there continuously. If she can't be filled, there's no way Icon which is of slightly lower capacity can stay there long term. 

 

Although, they could just put an icon class there and pull Spectrum and Wonder out permanently, but that would not be entirely smart.

LNG usage should grow in Canaveral. Space program is headed in that direction. Super cooled fuels have always been prevalent here anyway

The Carnival Celebration FERU is on its way from Neptun Werft to Meyer Turku in Finland. So now it is time to move the Icon of the Seas' keel sections inside (if they haven't already?) to start work. 
Completion by the end of the year most apparently.

I'm thinking that these are most likely all Carnival celebration blocks at the Meyer Turku shipyard. 😊
