MSC Cruises plans to host the naming ceremony for its newest vessel MSC Euribia in Copenhagen, Denmark, on 8 June 2023.

The ship is named after Eurybia, the Greek goddess of mastery of the seas. Denmark was chosen as the location for the ship’s launch due to the fact the country’s commitment to sustainability and protecting the oceans aligns with MSC Cruises’ own environmental goals.

MSC Euribia will be the cruise line’s second LNG-powered ship and will feature environmental technologies including systems for improving onboard wastewater treatment, waste management and energy efficiency. It will also have shore power connectivity.

The 181,541gt vessel will also feature a fresco painted on its exterior, which has been designed by German graphic artist Alex Flaemig to reinforce MSC Cruises’ commitment to sustainability.

MSC Euribia will begin its inaugural season in Northern Europe on 10 June 2023 with seven-night sailings from Copenhagen and Kiel in Germany to the Norwegian fjords. Ports of call will include Geiranger, Ålesund, Flam and others.
