Mein Schiff 1
Mein Schiff 1 was completed and delivered to TUI Cruises in April 2018. It was the fifth new cruise liner for the German shipping company – the entire fleet was built in the Finnish city of Turku.
The new series features around 180 additional staterooms, increasing the total number of passengers to 2,894 – and 90% of them can enjoy the luxury of an outside cabin with a sea view. The 438-metre running track on Mein Schiff 1 and Mein Schiff 2 is significantly longer than on the previous ships, and the gym and spa areas are also bigger. The arena with the sports court and climbing wall has also been fully covered for the first time. It’s plain to see the luxury liners in the Mein Schiff fleet are true sport and wellness ships.
Another new feature is the “Schaubühne”, an auditorium for speeches and concerts. Passengers can now choose from a wider selection of suite categories, presenting more diversity in the choice of cabins.
At the same time, however, some tried and tested elements have been kept, such as the 25-metre outdoor pool and the “Diamant Bar” behind the diamond-shaped glass façade at the stern of the ship.
The new fleet is setting environmental standards with its cutting-edge technology. All engines are fitted with catalytic converters, and a desulphurisation system is used to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions.
