VIDEO: MSC Euribia to boast exclusive hull artwork

A new MSC Cruises ship scheduled to debut next year will feature hull art that reflects the vessel will be the most environmentally advanced in the fleet.

MSC Euribia is due to launch in June 2023 and voyages on the new ship opened for bookings.

Euribia will be the cruise company’s second LNG-powered liner and will also be their most environmentally friendly ship. She will strike a different silhouette than her sisterships in the Meraviglia-Plus class, due to an exclusive artwork designed as the commitment by MSC to the sea.

MSC Cruises held an international design competition through Talent House in order to create a unique artwork for the hull of the newbuild, inspired by the sea and its marine ecosystem. The design is to be featured permanently, highlighting the steps that MSC Cruises is taking towards a greener future.

According to the winner Alex Flaemig, in order to make people even more aware of the unique underwater world with its precious life, he had graphically placed a small section of the ecosystem on the hull of MSC Euribia. What was important to him "was not only the representation of the underwater world, but also a message about how it should be preserved.”

Flaemig's design #SaveTheSea features the unique underwater world and weaves together the colours of MSC Cruises and MSC Foundation logos.

MSC Euribia is due to enter service in 2023 and become the 2nd LNG-powered ship in MSC Cruises’ fleet.
