The highly anticipated MSC World Europa has made its debut into the cruising world, bringing with her a new revolutionary cruise experience that has sustainability and the environment at its heart. The first in her class, MSC World Europa measures 47 meters wide, 22 decks high and features 2,626 cabins on board, as well as plenty of dining, entertainment, and relaxation amenities. In this blog post, we’re taking you through the top 10 reasons to be excited about the brand new MSC World Europa.

1. Sustainable Cruising

MSC World Europa symbolises a new era of cruising. The ship is one of the most environmentally advanced ships in the world and she is the first of the MSC Cruises fleet built to be powered by LNG – liquefied natural gas. Being powered by LNG means that MSC World Europa will hugely reduce emissions and with the latest water recycling technology on board also, will reduce underwater noise in respect of marine wildlife. MSC World Europa’s ground-breaking, sustainable design showcases MSC Cruises long-term environmental commitment.

2. New Indoor / Outdoor Promenade Spaces

The heart of MSC World Europa is the outdoor World Promenade. A beautiful space measuring an impressive 104 meters, the World Promenade opens out onto the aft of the ship offering you incredible sea and port views every day of your cruise. For fans of alfresco dining, this space will tick every box on your cruise holiday. It will also be home to fantastic entertainment both day and night. World Promenade also connects to the World Galleria, the indoor promenade, which is covered by a breath-taking LED, kinetic dome ceiling! In the World Promenade, you will also find a variety of bars, restaurants and boutique stores to enjoy throughout your cruise.

3. The Venom Drop @ The Spiral

One of the standout features on board MSC World Europa is The Venom Drop @ The Spiral! This sleek, stainless steel dry slide is the centrepiece of the World Promenade and not only is it a work of art in terms of design, but it will also be the longest dry slide at sea, dropping an impressive 11 decks. The Venom Drop is not for the faint of heart, however, it will most definitely be the quickest and most fun way to get from the top of the ship down to the World Promenade!

4. New Concept Dining and Entertainment

A gastronomical journey awaits you on board MSC World Europa. With a choice of 13 restaurants, including 6 speciality restaurants, and 20 bars including 7 brand new bar concepts, you will be spoilt for choice.
