MSC Euribia has successfully completed her deep-water intensive systems tests during a four-day trial in the Atlantic Ocean. The sea trials were the perfect occasion for the ship to showcase her innovative hull art.
After completing her sea trials, MSC Cruises’ latest flagship MSC Euribia will now receive her finishing touches at the Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard in Saint Nazaire, France before being officially delivered to MSC Cruises on 31 May.
MSC Euribia will feature innovative and advanced marine technology, as well as LNG fuel to minimise her environmental footprint. She will also strike a new silhouette with an exclusive customised fresco painted on her exterior that celebrates MSC Cruises’ commitment to protect and preserve the marine environment.
The striking hull artwork was designed by German graphic artist Alex Flämig following an international competition. Designed with an ocean-inspired colour palette, Flämig’s visual masterpiece entitled #SavetheSea is a representation of MSC Cruises’ ongoing dedication to the sea and commitment to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.The artwork aims to stimulate discussion on the importance of protecting the delicate and complex ecosystem of the oceans.
MSC Euribia is named after the ancient goddess Eurybia, who harnessed the winds, weather, and constellations to master the seas, illustrating the vision of the ship to deploy advanced sustainable solutions do the same.
MSC Euribia will be MSC Cruises’ 22 ship to join its fleet and be able to accommodate up to 6,327 passengers. The ship will be officially named on 8 June in Copenhagen, Denmark before sailing a maiden inaugural season in Northern Europe from her homeport in Kiel, Germany.
