MSC Euribia

MSC Cruises welcomed its much-anticipated new flagship to the fleet last night during a lavish nearly two-hour naming ceremony in Copenhagen. The traditional maritime even paid tribute to the environmentally advanced MSC Euribia, which is designed to be the most energy-efficient cruise ship ever.

MSC Euribia  

The event featured everything from ballet to Spandau Ballet—the former lead singer of that group, Tom Hadley, performed with a full orchestra. And famed actress Sophia Loren, who had previously christened 19 other MSC Cruises ships, once again served as godmother for MSC Euribia.

On board, MSC Euribia boasts a range of best-in-class environmental technology, including advanced onboard wastewater treatment systems and waste management handling. She has also been designed with the future in mind, allowing her to easily incorporate future innovations in sustainability, such as carbon-neutral synthetic, fuel cell and other alternative fuels as soon as they are available at scale.

Indeed, MSC Euribia is now the most energy-efficient cruise ship in the world at the time of her launch. During her maiden voyage, she completed a net zero GHG emissions journey from Saint-Nazaire to Copenhagen, benefiting from the emissions reductions allowed by bio-LNG and application of the mass balance approach.

Danish television host, actress and model Sarah Grünewald hosted the naming ceremony. Joining the festivities were distinguished guests from around the world, key travel partners and international media, as well as top management from MSC Cruises and its parent company, MSC Group.

The naming ceremony included live entertainment and speeches combined with the important maritime tradition of cutting a ribbon to break a bottle of champagne over the ship’s bow. Guests were also treated to a gourmet gala dinner and special performances, including a late-night DJ set by Bob Sinclar, internationally acclaimed French DJ, and record producer, who closed out the evening.

MSC Euribia begins sailing in Northern Europe this summer (2023) with 80 different itineraries including three-night to seven-night cruises from Kiel, Germany and Copenhagen, Denmark to the Norwegian Fjords, including Geiranger, Ålesund, and Flaam. Contact TravelKatz (352-277-7300) to book your cruise on the Euribia.  The ship, the 22nd vessel in the MSC Cruises fleet, displaces 184,011 gross registered tons with 19 decks. It has 2,419 cabins with a total capacity of 6,334 guests and 37,6736 square feet of public space.

MSC Euribia is named after the ancient goddess Eurybia, who harnessed the winds, weather, and constellations to master the seas, furthering the vision of the ship to master the deployment of state-of-the-art technologies to protect and preserve the precious marine ecosystem.

MSC Euribia is the second LNG-powered vessel in the MSC fleet and the most innovative and environmentally advanced ship to date. She features an exclusive customized mural titled #SaveTheSea, which is painted on her exterior to celebrate MSC Cruises’ ongoing dedication to the ocean and commitment to achieve net zero emissions by 2050. As a Meraviglia-Plus class ship, MSC Euribia offers an abundance of guest experiences with innovative features, facilities, and enriching entertainment for the whole family.

Located in the aft of the ship, the new larger Carousel Lounge is reinvented with a new layout, offering even more stunning panoramic ocean views. It allows guests to relax during the day or participate in a range of leisure activities, as well as enjoy a variety of live music every evening including from the Big Band at Sea, one of the largest live music groups sailing the world’s oceans.

A revolutionary kids’ area features 7,534 square feet of interior space entirely dedicated to kids and teenagers. It has seven rooms, each catering to different age groups from ages 0-17. For the first time, it will include the MSC Foundation Lab, offering a brand-new kids area and program of activities dedicated to educating children and teenagers about environmental topics.

Guests can choose between 10 dining venues, including five specialty restaurants with the new Le Grill, a stylish French bistro meets steakhouse, and Kaito Sushi & Robatayaki, a mainstay of MSC Cruises that features a Robatayaki for the first time. There’s also the brand-new Helios Winemaker bar, which features a digital wine class that educates guests on wine tasting and has roughly 96 different wines from around the world.

Gests also can experience the artwork, Street. 2023, by renowned British artist Julian Opie in l’Atelier du Voyageur bar. Commissioned specifically for MSC Euribia, the artwork is an expansive 36 foot by six-foot purpose-built LED screen featuring walking figures in Opie’s distinctive style.

MSC Euribia features five pools, including the main outdoor Atmosphere Pool & Bar and the indoor Bamboo Pool & Bar. The ship also has its very own coral-themed Ocean Cay AquaPark, one of the largest and most elaborate waterparks at sea, with three water slides.

The 945-seat Delphi Theatre offers world-class live entertainment every evening with a full seven-day program of big-production shows. The ship has 21 bars and lounges with five outdoor and 16 indoor areas. Guests will have the opportunity to explore and connect at Galleria Euribia, the longest LED Dome at sea, with an array of shops, restaurants, and entertainment to discover.

The MSC Aurea Spa on MSC Euribia is a world of relaxation, wellbeing and beauty and boasts an exclusive Thermal Area with sauna, steam bath and whirlpool, a professional Hair and Nail Salon and a Barber Shop. A contemporary Balinese Spa designed to revitalize your body and soul with a vast choice of authentic massages and beauty treatments.

For MSC Cruises, however, the big news with MSC Euribia is its focus on sustainability, a key pillar in the company’s strategy going forward. MSC Euribia competed the first net-zero GHG trip on her first voyage from St. Nazaire to Copenhagen using bio-LNG under a mass-balance system, which MSC says is the most cost effective and environmentally efficient method of delivering the benefits of renewable biogas. MSC Euribia can be powered using Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), which virtually eliminates Sulphur oxides and particulates and reduces nitrogen oxides by 85 percent. It also reduces emissions of greenhouse gases by up to 20 percent (on a CO2-equivalent basis).

On the other hand, MSC admits that LNG is a transition fuel. The onboard engine technology and fuel systems can already use bio and synthetic LNG today. In the future, the ship design can accommodate retrofits enabling LNG-powered vessels to operate using green methanol. MSC Cruises says it is committed to deploying drop-in renewable fuels and accelerating the energy transition to net-zero.

MSC Euribia is the most energy-efficient cruise ship design ever. It will achieve an IMO Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) 55 percent better than currently required and is expected to be the best-performing cruise ship in the world at the time of her launch. MSC Euribia will emit up to 19 percent less greenhouse gas emissions per passenger per day than her sisterships that use conventional marine fuels. She will emit up to 44 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions per passenger per day than ships built only 10 years ago.

Wastewater is treated to standard beyond many shoreside municipal wastewater treatment systems worldwide. MSC Euribia’s technology meets the strictest international IMO standards, including the so-called Baltic standard. Advanced waste management systems allow the ship to reduce, reuse and recycle the waste generated on board.

The emissions intensity of MSC’s ship operations has decreased by 33.5 percent since 2008, and the company will achieve a 40 percent reduction ahead of the IMO 2030 target.  Achieving net zero emissions will require more than finding further operational efficiencies. That’s why MSC is embracing new technologies and switching to non-carbon and renewable fuels. It is working with fuel providers and others on deploying drop-in sustainable fuels like advanced biofuels and biogas today. Looking into the future green hydrogen and green methanol will likely contribute to decarbonization, as will synthetic e-fuels. MSC’s focus is the development of scalable solutions that can be used universally.

MSC has long been committed to environmental stewardship with a long-term goal to achieve net zero emissions for its operations by 2050. The company is also a significant investor in next-generation environmental marine technologies, with the objective to support their accelerated development and availability industry-wide.

The design of MSC Euribia – In October 2021, we launched a worldwide competition in search of an artist to design an artwork for MSC Euribia hull, to symbolize the commitment to the sea. The unique and iconic design by artist Alex Flämig has been chosen to represent our dedication to the marine ecosystem: his artwork #SaveTheSea will be permanently featured on the ship’s hull. The five finalists have their designs displayed on board the ship in a new gallery.
