MSC Cruises has officially christened MSC Euribia, the company’s most environmentally-friendly ship to date.
The event, which took place in Copenhagen, saw Sophia Loren, the cinema icon, christen the ship, continuing her long-running partnership with MSC Cruises.
MSC Euribia boasts the most “energy-efficient cruise ship design ever”, according to the company.
The ship is the second in the MSC Cruises fleet to be powered by LNG, a transitionary cleaner fuel, but it also boasts a number of other innovations, including advanced onboard wastewater treatment systems and waste management handling. The ship has also been designed with the future in mind, allowing it to easily incorporate future innovations in sustainability, such as carbon-neutral synthetic and other alternative fuels as soon as they are available at scale.
The ship also completed the world’s first net zero GHG emissions cruise during its sailing from the shipyard in St Nazaire to Copenhagen.
