Guests can expect three live performances each evening with themes ranging from rock to musicals, offering diverse entertainment options. Visiting guest acts will also be joining the band for one-off concerts.

MSC Euribia Naming Ceremony June 8
MSC Euribia will be officially named in a ceremony in Copenhagen on June 8, 2023. As the 22nd vessel in the MSC Cruises fleet, the Meraviglia-class ship is being built at the Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard in St. Nazaire, France.

In addition to LNG, the 183,500 gross ton MSC Euribia will feature other advanced environmental technologies such as a ‘Baltic Standard’ wastewater treatment system, energy efficiency measures, and shore power connectivity.
The ship will also have an underwater radiated noise management system to minimize the impact on marine life. Besides environmental measures, the ship will offer a wide range of amenities, including 10 dining venues, 21 bars and lounges, five pools, an AquaPark, and one of the most comprehensive children’s programs at sea.
Following its naming ceremony, MSC Euribia will spend its inaugural season in Northern Europe, sailing 7-night cruises from Kiel, Germany; Rotterdam, The Netherlands; and Copenhagen, Denmark, to the Norwegian Fjords with stops at Geiranger, Ålesund, and Flaam.
