As informed, the naming ceremony took place in Copenhagen on 8 June. The vessel boasts a range of environmental technologies, including advanced onboard wastewater treatment systems and waste management handling. It has also been designed with the future in mind, allowing it to easily incorporate future innovations in sustainability, such as carbon-neutral synthetic and other alternative fuels as soon as they are available at scale.

During its maiden voyage, MSC Euribia completed a net-zero GHG emissions journey from Saint-Nazaire to Copenhagen, benefiting from the emissions reductions allowed by bio-LNG and the application of the mass balance approach, the company noted. MSC Cruises was supported by Nordic energy company Gasum for the net zero greenhouse gas emissions voyage.
