MSC Cruises released additional details about the upcoming Naming Ceremony for their newest ship - MSC Euribia, set to take place on June 8th in Copenhagen Denmark, with less than a month remaining.

Copenhagen was selected as the launch location due to its maritime heritage and dedication to sustainability, aligning with MSC's vision for a sustainable future and commitment to marine environment preservation.

Euribia represents a major step forward in energy efficiency, earning the title of the most energy-efficient cruise ship design to date. It will be the second ship in MSC's fleet to run on LNG-liquefied natural gas. The ship will also incorporate advanced environmental technologies, including onboard wastewater treatment systems, waste management solutions, energy efficiency measures, and innovative underwater radiated noise management systems to minimize the impact on the marine environment.

To celebrate the launch of this innovative vessel, MSC will hold a Naming Ceremony that brings together esteemed guests such as local dignitaries, key travel partners, international media, and renowned individuals. The Godmother for MSC Euribia will be Sophia Loren, the iconic Hollywood actress and Oscar winner, who has a longstanding personal relationship with the cruise line and has fulfilled this role for 19 of their ships. The Master of Ceremony for the event will be Sarah Grunewald, a well-known Danish television host, actress, and model.

During the ceremony, guests can expect traditional elements such as breaking a champagne bottle over the ship's bow, along with a magnificent gala dinner and live entertainment. The evening will culminate with a special DJ set by the world-renowned French DJ and record producer, Bob Sinclar.
