In a significant step towards the company’s commitment to achieving net zero emissions by 2050, departing on 10 June from Kiel, Germany, MSC Euribia is embarking on the first zero-emissions sailing for a cruise ship. 

In its inaugural season the vessel will remain in Northern Europe, stopping in Rotterdam, Hamburg and Southampton. 


Designed to be the most energy-efficient cruise ship ever built, MSC Euribia is MSC Cruises’ second vessel powered by LNG, currently the cleanest commercially available marine fuel.

MSC Euribia represents the most innovative and environmentally advanced ship in the fleet. It is designed to minimise the impact on the air and marine environment through a range of technologies and solutions. In addition, the vessel is future-ready, designed to incorporate future sustainability innovations such as carbon-neutral synthetic and alternative fuels.
