When MSC World Europa debuts later this year it will feature an all-new Owner Suite category, as well as more than 18,000-square-feet of outdoor space.
New Suite Category
Exclusive to the World Class ships, of which World Europa is the first, will be Owner Suites. Each ship will have two of these 1,600-square-foot multi-room suites. The plush accommodation will consist of a double bedroom with walk-in wardrobe, a bathroom complete with full-sized bathtub, and a separate living and dining area with floor-to-ceiling windows. The balcony will offer an al fresco dining space and a whirlpool.
The MSC Yacht Club on MSC Europa will span two decks at the front of the ship. The lower deck will be home to a bar and grill, while the upper deck will feature a pool and whirlpool, along with loungers and private cabanas.
Double-Balcony Duplex Suites
Also on offer will be several Duplex Suites, with one entire floor dedicated to relaxation with a dining area, lounge and guest bathroom. Upstairs will house the main bedroom, which has its own bathroom complete with bathtub. Both levels feature a balcony, with the lower floor balcony offering a private whirlpool and lounge area.
Scheduled to launch in December, MSC World Europa will be the line's largest ship and the first to be powered by the more environmentally friendly LNG fuel. The ship will have 21 decks and measure around 205,000-gross-tons, making it only a bit smaller than the current largest cruise ship in the world, Wonder of the Seas. It will also be the first ship in MSC's fleet to feature themed districts that range from adults-only to kid-friendly.
