Icon of the Seas is powered by six dual-fuel engines, which can be powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG), a fuel alternative that the Cruise Lines International Association says reduces sulfur and greenhouse gas emissions. However, the use of LNG on ships has raised concerns among environmentalists, who worry that it increases methane emissions. Royal Caribbean insists that every kilowatt used on the Icon of the Seas is scrutinized for energy efficiencies and emission reductions.
