FFMS is delighted to have assisted with the delivery and registration under the Malta flag of the two latest additions to the MSC Cruise fleet: MSC World Europa & MSC Seascape. Whilst contributing over 200,000 gross tonnes to the Malta Registry, the MSC World Europa is also the first in her class to be equipped with Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) propulsion systems. With the intent of setting new standards for the cruise industry, this vessel has also been designed to include advanced waste management systems, anti-fouling paints and underwater-radiated noise control, making her the most environmentally sustainable cruise ship in the MSC cruise fleet. MSC are fully committed to provide a luxurious yet sustainable experience for their passengers.

The delivery of MSC World Europa has coincided with the 2022 World Cup event and owners have coordinated the vessel’s maiden voyage to Doha, where she was employed as a floating hotel for FIFA world cup fans. The Malta flag flying high above this spectacular vessel has attracted the attention of many visiting the country including Malta’s Minister for Foreign and European Affairs and Trade who was invited on board to tour the vessel.

Less than three weeks following the delivery of MSC World Europa, Fenech & Fenech Marine Services Ltd were once again busy assisting with the delivery and registration of the MSC Seascape. This is the second Seaside EVO vessel to join the fleet this year and aside from its remarkable dimensions, she boasts the latest marine technological innovations. Once again, MSC are setting a fine example for the industry by designing a vessel with the most innovative technology with a goal to reaching net-zero emissions.

Fenech & Fenech Advocates’ Ship Finance department are also delighted to have once again assisted MSC with the financing aspects of these two vessels.
