ESG Today reports that the ship will take a four days trip between France and Denmark, starting June 3rd, with the aim to showcase the possibility of clean cruise transport.

Pierfrancesco Vago, Executive Chairman of the Cruise Division of MSC Group, said that "this industry-first net zero gas emissions voyage of our latest flagship MSC Euribia heralds another significant step on our decarbonization journey and demonstrates more than anything the extent of our commitment."

To power the ship for the trip, MSC Cruises purchased 400 tons of bio-LNG, a form of fuel that is produced from various types of organic waste. Thus, it is a sustainable fuel solution sourced from local livestock and it has the same properties as fossil fuel gas, but with lower emissions over its lifetime.

MSC Cruises also presented more measures to reduce the carbon footprint of cruising, such as optimizing the speed of the ship, lowering energy demand across the vessel and even optimizing guest cabin air conditioning.
