MSC Cruises has officially christened its newest flagship, MSC Euribia, at a glittering ceremony at Copenhagen Port.
Renowned Danish television host, actress and model Sarah Grünewald hosted the ceremony. Also in attendance was Sophia Loren, Godmother of MSC Cruises’ fleet and screen legend.
Also present 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.
There were live entertainment and speeches combined with the important maritime tradition of cutting the ribbon to break a bottle of champagne over the ship’s bow.
Guests were treated to a gourmet gala dinner and unforgettable performances, including a spectacular DJ set by Bob Sinclair, internationally acclaimed French DJ and record producer, who closed out the evening.
The special event gave guests the first look at the revolutionary new ship’s cutting-edge design and various world-class guest experiences.
MSC Euribia is the 22nd vessel in the MSC Cruises fleet, spanning 19 decks, 43 metres wide, with 2,419 cabins and 35,000m2 of public space.
The ship is MSC Cruises’ second vessel powered by LNG, the cleanest marine fuel commercially available at scale.
On board, she 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 and other alternative fuels as soon as they are available at scale.
MSC Euribia is expected to be the most energy-efficient cruise ship design in the world at the time of her launch. She completed a net zero GHG emissions journey from St Nazaire to Copenhagen during her maiden voyage.
MSC Euribia begins sailings in Northern Europe this summer with 7-night sailings from Kiel, Germany and Copenhagen, Denmark to the Norwegian Fjords, including Geiranger, Ålesund, and Flaam.
