This Monday, TUI Cruises took delivery of Mein Schiff 5 from the Meyer Turku shipyard, ten days ahead of schedule.

According to Meyer Turku, the new cruise ship builds on the high standard and success of Mein Schiff 3 and Mein Schiff 4 to further improve this series of ships. As with the entire fleet, the focus has been on the passengers’ well-being as well as spaciousness.

In terms of environmental performance, Mein Schiff 5 ranks among the most energy-efficient ships in its class worldwide. Eco-friendly solutions on board include the combined exhaust gas cleaning system, which significantly reduces the emission levels of the ship. Meanwhile, the overall energy consumption of Mein Schiff 5 is four percent lower than that of its sister ship Mein Schiff 3.

”During the two-year construction period, countless people dedicated themselves to turning ten million components into this new ship,” TUI Cruises CEO Wybcke Meier said in his speech during the handing-over ceremony. “We are looking forward to finally putting Mein Schiff 5 into service in mid-July.”

The ropes of Mein Schiff 5 were cut on Tuesday, after which the ship and roughly 1,000 crew members on board set sail for Kiel, Germany.
