TUI Cruises is to christen the lastest ship in its Mein Schiff fleet, Mein Schiff 7, during a roundtrip voyage in the Bay of Kiel, departing from Kiel, Germany, on 21 June.

During the two-day voyage, guests will be able to experience a programme of entertainment, including a new show, a range of musicians, and several culinary experiences.

“After the christening of Mein Schiff 4 in 2015, we consciously decided to have a christening in the Bay of Kiel again because it is the perfect place to start wonderful journeys north,” said Wybcke Meier, CEO of TUI Cruises. “This is exactly what we are inviting the guests of Mein Schiff 7 to do from June.”

The ship will be officially named by godmother Fenia Kalachani, environmental officer for the Mein Schiff fleet. Kalachani is responsible for the implementation and compliance with environmental regulations onboard TUI’s ships.

“As an environmental officer, I am pleased to be able to contribute to ensuring that our guests experience how seriously we take environmental protection,” said Kalachani. “It is a particularly great honour for me that I am now the godmother for the Mein Schiff 7 - on behalf of the entire Mein Schiff crew. This ship is a good example of how innovative cruising can be in the area of ​​environment and sustainability.”

Mein Schiff 7 will operate using low-emission marine diesel and is equipped with catalytic converters, shore power connection capability. It has also been designed to run on methanol when the fuel is more widely available.

The vessel has also been equipped with the Hydro-Treat system, which processes organic waste through thermal treatment to make biochar, which can then be used on land for different purposes.
