MSC Cruises announced that the official naming ceremony for the fleet's newest flagship MSC Euribia will take place in Copenhagen (Denmark) on June 8th.
The new flagship is expected to become MSC’s second LNG-powered vessel and will also feature state-of-the-art environmental systems like energy efficiency, ‘Baltic Standard’ advanced onboard wastewater treatment, and waste management.
MSC Euribia symbolizes the line’s commitment to protecting the oceans. This is why Copenhagen was selected as the launch location: the port has a rich maritime heritage and Denmark is a country with respect for the sea and a commitment to sustainability.
The highly anticipated newbuild will feature a fresco painted on her exterior representing MSC Cruises’ commitment to preserving the marine environment. The artwork, designed by German graphic artist, Alex Flaemig, is dedicated to the importance of protecting this delicate ecosystem. MSC Euribia is named after the goddess Eurybia who harnessed the weather, winds, and constellations to master the seas.
Starting her inaugural season in Northern Europe from June 10th, Euribia will operate on 7-night roundtrips from two homeports - Copenhagen and Kiel/Germany) to the Norwegian Fjords including Alesund, Flam, and Geiranger.
