MSC World Europa – Outdoor Promenade and Illuminated Trees

The vessel is an incredible feat of engineering which features a 104-metre-long external promenade, showcasing the record-breaking 11-deck high stainless-steel sinuous dry slide, the longest at sea.  This creates a spectacular centrepiece in the evening when the ‘illuminated trees’, a stunning configuration of homogenous LED lines which clad the structural steel, introduce an energetic and dynamic component to the drama of this vast outdoor space, designed by Martin Francis.
