It takes a lot of power to move a big ship

On the engine room tour we learned that the ship uses 500-1000 tons of fuel each day that we are steaming! That’s quite a lot! There are  6 main and 2 auxilliary engines that can generate 35,000 Kw of electricity. Enought to power a small town! And with 200 people on board, that’s pretty much what we are. The engine rooms were very loud and incredibly clean!
