MSC World Europa on TV: Channel 4’s Building The Billion Pound Cruise Ship

Channel 4 is set to premiere an exciting new documentary titled “Building The Billion Pound Cruise Ship,”, showcasing the remarkable journey of MSC Cruises‘ revolutionary megaship, MSC World Europa. This one-hour special, airing on Saturday, December 16, 2023, takes viewers on an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the ship’s journey from its initial steel cutting in 2019 to welcoming its first guests in late 2022. In fact, you may remember the ship making headlines at the 2022 FIFA World Cup as “HMS WAG“.

The documentary provides an in-depth look at the intricate process of building the MSC World Europa, a 22-deck, 215,900 GT cruise ship powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG). It highlights the efforts of the dedicated teams of designers, project managers, and shipbuilders who worked tirelessly to meet the demanding schedule and bring this innovative ship prototype to life. The audience will witness the cutting-edge construction techniques employed to assemble the ship from over 42,000 tonnes of steel.

Sustainability & Efficiency

A significant focus of the documentary is on the MSC World Europa’s status as the world’s most energy-efficient large cruise ship. Built by Chantiers de L’Atlantique, it not only runs on LNG but also features a variety of environmental technologies designed to reduce its environmental footprint. Discover a unique perspective on these technologies as you watch the show, you’ll even see them be installed and then in action.

MSC World Europa stands out in its class with its array of amenities. It boasts 33 restaurants, bars, and lounges, each with a unique style, including 6 specialty restaurants and 7 new bar and café concepts. The ship offers next-level entertainment across new high-tech venues, 6 swimming pools, the most luxurious MSC Yacht Club to date, the largest and most feature-rich kids’ area in MSC Cruises’ fleet, and much more.

The documentary also covers the MSC World Europa’s itinerary, as it sails the Mediterranean during the winter of 2023/2024 and the summer of 2024. Take a glimpse into the luxurious experiences guests can enjoy on board.
