Meyer Turku officially delivered Mein Schiff 6 to owner TUI Cruises at its Turku yard in Finland on 9 May 2017.

Weighing 99,800gt, the 295-metre-long Mein Schiff 6 has 15 decks and can accommodate 2,794 passengers in a total of 1,267 cabins, 82% of which have balconies. The vessel will also offer 13 restaurants, 13 bars and lounges, and much more.

“We are very happy about the delivery of Mein Schiff 6 on time and with excellent quality,” said Wybcke Meier, CEO of TUI Cruises. “With this ship, we can again deliver the high TUI Cruises standard to our passengers and exceed it with fine tunings and small surprises.”

Mein Schiff 6 is the fourth in a series of ships Meyer Turku has built for TUI Cruises.

“At the shipyard we have a very interesting working mode: every one to two years we develop a new ship type and then we further refine it in the following sister ships,” said Jan Meyer, CEO of Meyer Turku. “With Mein Schiff 6, our goal was to improve further from previous ships with a few fine tunings based on passenger feedback, and at the same time, build it in fewer hours than before.”
