MSC's Most Environmentally Advanced Ship Opens Sales
Luxury Cruise Guide
03 April, 2022
MSC Cruises has opened sales for MSC Euribia, the line’s most environmentally advanced ship and its second LNG-powered vessel, due to launch in early June 2023. The ship will spend its inaugural season sailing in Northern Europe from the German port of Kiel, offering seven-night itineraries to the Norwegian Fjords with calls including Copenhagen, Denmark; Hellesylt, (for the Geirangerfjord), Alesund and Flam, Norway, among others.
Good to know: All Voyagers Club members who book MSC Euribia will benefit from their usual 5 percent discount, plus a further 5 percent booking discount and enjoy double Voyagers Club points. In addition, Silver, Gold and Diamond members also benefit from a $50 per person on onboard credit.
Hull Design Winner Revealed
MSC Euribia will be sporting a different design on its hull than its sister ships in the Meraviglia-Plus class. The line held an international design competition through Talent House to select the art for the ship’s hull, which was to be inspired by the sea and its ecosystem. Designs from 59 countries were submitted and the winner, German artist Alex Flaemig, was revealed Friday. Flaemig will have his artwork gracing the ship’s exterior. The five finalists from the competition will have their designs displayed on board the ship in a new gallery.
Eco-Features of MSC Euribia
MSC Euribia will come into service in 2023 and become the second LNG-powered ship in MSC Cruises’ fleet, marking another step forward in substantially reducing greenhouse gas emissions. LNG plays a key role in the journey toward climate change mitigation and will reduce CO2 emissions by up to 25 percent on MSC Euribia, compared to standard fuels, while virtually eliminating other air emissions.
As bio and synthetic fuels become available, MSC Euribia’s emissions will be further reduced. LNG is key to the development of low carbon solutions for shipping, as emerging technologies such as fuel cells can be operated with LNG until zero emissions bio-LNG or green hydrogen become available at scale. MSC Cruises is involved in several projects to develop and make these technologies viable in partnership with regulators, academia, shipyards and industry. This includes a project to study the use of hydrogen fuel in cruise ships in partnership with Fincantieri and SNAM, as well as a pilot project for the development of solid oxide fuel cell technology for cruise ships with Chantiers de l’Atlantique and Bloom Energy.
MSC Euribia will utilize an advanced wastewater treatment system, as well as an underwater radiated noise management system to minimize the effects of vibrations on marine life. Multiple energy efficiency features help reduce and optimize engine use.
MSC Cruises is committed to powering at least three upcoming ships with LNG.
