The keel laying of Mein Schiff 2

It has been an exciting week for TUI Cruises. Following last Friday’s float out of the new Mein Schiff 1, the company has celebrated the keel laying of the new Mein Schiff 2

According to the old shipping tradition symbolic coins – to bring the ship good luck -were placed in the central block of the ship at the Meyer shipyard in Turku.

“With the new Mein Schiff 1 and the new Mein Schiff 2 we get two great new ships with which our fleet is well positioned for the future. It is impressive to see how these ships are taking shape on the shipyard” – Wybcke Meier, CEO of TUI Cruises.

The new Mein Schiff 2 will be put into service at the beginning of 2019 and will – together with the Mein Schiff 1 – be the starting point for a new generation of ships for the Hamburg-based cruise company. Both sister ships will be about 20 meters longer than the recent Mein Schiff 5 and Mein Schiff 6. In addition to even more space to “feel good” they will offer a greater variety of cabins and suites. 

The new Mein Schiff 1 and the new Mein Schiff 2 offer space for up to 2,894 guests.
