Details of MSC Euribia’s Naming Revealed Ahead of Copenhagen Ceremony
MSC Cruises revealed information regarding the Naming Ceremony of the line’s newest ship, MSC Euribia. The June 8 event will take place in Copenhagen, Denmark due to the city’s maritime history.
MSC Euribia is touted by the line as being “Built for the Future.” As the most energy-efficient cruise ship design in the world, she will be powered by LNG, one of the cleanest and most efficient fuel sources commercially available, and is the second ship in the MSC fleet to be fueled by the energy source. Other features include sophisticated waste management systems and several underwater noise reduction systems to minimize the ship’s impact on the environments she sails.
