MSC Cruises’ second LNG-powered ship, MSC Euribia, successfully completed her deep-water intensive systems tests during four days of trials in the Atlantic Ocean.

The sea tests checked the performance of the four engines, maneuverability, fuel consumption, safety systems, speed and stopping distances.

The vessel has now moved to a wet dock at Chantiers de l’Atlantique in Saint-Nazaire before she is officially delivered at the end of May.

The 184,011gt MSC Euribia, MSC Cruises’ 22nd ship, will be able to accommodate up to 6,327 passengers. 

Naming ceremony in Copenhagen

The vessel will be officially named June 8 in Copenhagen before sailing a maiden inaugural season in Northern Europe from her homeport in Kiel, Germany.

MSC Euribia features a fresco painted on her exterior designed by German graphic artist Alex Flaemig that celebrates MSC Cruises’ commitment to protect and preserve the marine environment,

The ship will feature shore power connectivity, advanced wastewater treatment systems, comprehensive waste recycling, underwater radiated noise management system and a comprehensive range of onboard energy efficient equipment to optimise engine use and hotel energy needs to further reduce emissions.

The ship will remain in Northern Europe for the winter 2023-24 season and homeport in Hamburg for seven-night sailings to Rotterdam, Zeebrugge, Le Havre and Southampton.
