Construction has started of the last ship in the Mein Schiff series for Germany’s Tui Cruises at the Meyer group’s Turku shipyard in Finland.
Tim Meyer, CEO Meyer Turku, said: “We are really excited to continue the long and successful partnership with Tui Cruises. We have again been focusing on optimizing the design in regards of energy efficiency and technologies to increase sustainability and make this ship the finest in the entire series.”
The ship will offer its 2,849 guests elements familiar from the Mein Schiff concept, such as a large number of outdoor cabins with balconies. For example, the diverse selection of bars and restaurants and the 25-meter swimming pool will also be there. Many features will be updated to make them even more interesting with the latest solutions available.
Wybcke Meier, CEO Tui Cruises, said: “After two years of pandemics, we have returned to our course and will continue to grow as planned. Mein Schiff 7 will take us forward in our work for more environmentally friendly cruise tourism. The ship will be built so that it can be used with methanol. In addition, the ship’s operations in the port are almost emission-free. Mein Schiff 7 is an important milestone in our efforts to provide the first climate-neutral cruises by 2030. ”
