MSC Euribia is first cruise ship bunkered with LNG in Cadiz

MSC Euribia is supplied with LNG fuel on its first sailing to Cadiz
MSC Euribia is the first cruise ship to be supplied with LNG fuel at the Port of Cadiz.

The operation took place during the ship’s inaugural visit to the Spanish port. Ship Capt. Pietro Sinisi and Port Authority of the Bay of Cadiz President Teófila Martínez exchanged plaques to mark the occasion. 


LNG fuel was provided by Peninsula ahead of MSC Euribia’s 13-night voyage to Hamburg with calls at Lanzarote, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Casablanca, Funchal, Lisbon and Southampton.

The 181,011gt MSC Euribia, the second ship in MSC Cruises’ fleet powered by LNG, began operations in June 2023 following MSC World Europa’s launch in December 2022.

Three LNG ships on order

The cruise line has three new World class LNG ships on order, with the option of an additional vessel. MSC World America will join the fleet in April 2025 while the others – currently known as World Class 3 and World Class 4 – will be delivered by Chantiers de l’Atlantique in 2026 and 2027.
