This cruise ship, unlike any other, was not built to sail the world; she was built to change it.
As the first in her class, she is a modern cruise ship, pushing the boundaries of what is possible at sea. She breaks records, sets new standards and is our most sustainable and futuristic cruise ship ever. Powered by cleaner fuel, and with green technology integrated throughout the ship, she is a statement of our commitment to the future of this planet.
Good News! The MSC Europa will be sailing the Arabian Gulf come December 2022.
