Iona is one of the world’s first ever LNG-powered cruise ships. LNG stands for liquefied natural gas, which is cooled down until it becomes a liquid. This eco-friendly drive system prevents the emission of sulphur dioxides and soot particles. The engine room unit containing the LNG tanks was manufactured at NEPTUN WERFT in Rostock – another shipyard in the MEYER Group.

The Iona is the largest cruise ship ever built for the UK market and the first British cruise ship to be powered by LNG.

P&O Cruises has just unveiled details of Iona’s impressive centrepiece – a stunning Grand Atrium with uninterrupted panoramic views of the sea, framed by glazed walls stretching three decks high. A stunning glass SkyDome will be the crowning glory on top of P&O Cruises ship Iona, providing a new home for on board entertainment, along with a "hidden" night club and boutique cinema.   Brand new for P&O Cruises, SkyDome is a contemporary entertainment venue.  Located on decks 16 and 17 it promises to be one of Iona's star attractions, featuring an impressive roof and a pool with retractable stage.   SkyDome offers a unique space whatever the weather. It will sit over the three-deck high central Grand Atrium, the ship’s social hub, with dining venues, entertainment and relaxation spaces.SkyDome itself will occupy two decks – Deck 16, with restaurants, bars and a swimming pool – and Deck 17, a mezzanine level offering a bar and seating area.Up top, there will be 16 whirlpools and 4 swimming pools (one of which will be part of the SkyDome) and on the promenade deck she’ll have a half-mile-long promenade with outdoor dining.SkyDome will also have a retractable stage for shows.
