Coin Ceremony Held for MSC World America

By Cruise Booking Team

As a further step toward creating a world where technology meets innovation for a more sustainable cruise experience, MSC Cruises held a coin ceremony on Wednesday for the third LNG-powered ship and the first to call the U.S., MSC World America, at Chantiers de l’Atlantique.

MSC Euribia’s replacement will feature many of the same environmental innovations, but also pioneering technology that virtually eliminates methane slip when LNG is burned. In addition to Silvia Turbia of MSC Cruise Divisions, Séverine Blandin of Chantiers de l’Atlantique was also a godmother for the traditional maritime ceremony.

A long-term partnership between MSC Cruises and Chantier de l’Atlantique led to the development of this 19th ship in the World Class series. It is my pleasure to announce that MSC World Europa, MSC Eurabia, and MSC World America are the three most energy-efficient and environmentally friendly ships in the cruise industry.
