With the ultimate goal of achieving net zero emissions for its operations by 2050, MSC Cruises has demonstrated a long-standing commitment to environmental stewardship.

MSC Cruises is setting sail towards a greener future with the launch of their new flagship, MSC Euribia, in Copenhagen, Denmark on 8 June.

The vessel will become the second ship in the MSC Cruises fleet to be powered by Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), a marine fuel that is known for being one of the cleanest available.

MSC Euribia will also feature advanced environmental technologies such as an onboard wastewater treatment system, waste management handling, energy efficiency measures, and shore power connectivity that will allow the ship to achieve zero emissions when onshore power is available.

The naming ceremony for MSC Euribia will take place in Copenhagen, a city known for its rich maritime heritage and a deep commitment to sustainability.

The vessel's exterior will also feature a fresco designed by a German graphic artist, Alex Flaemig, that aims to represent MSC Cruises' commitment to protecting and preserving the marine environment.

As an LNG-powered ship, MSC Euribia will significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and virtually eliminate other air emissions. It is anticipated that bio and synthetic fuels will be introduced in the future, which will further reduce the ship's carbon footprint.

The vessel will also utilise advanced wastewater treatment systems and underwater radiated noise management systems to minimise the effects of vibrations on marine life. Multiple energy efficiency features will also help reduce and optimise engine use.

Onboard MSC Euribia, guests will have access to an array of amenities and entertainment options, including a Mediterranean-style Promenade, a variety of shops, 10 elegant dining venues, and 21 bars and lounges.

Additionally, the ship features a 954-seat theatre that offers live entertainment every evening, as well as five pools and its very own coral-themed AquaPark, one of the largest and most elaborate waterparks at sea.

The fleet's onboard MSC Foundation Centre will allow children to participate in educational games to learn more about the environment, while adults can learn more about MSC Foundation's programs and causes.
