Gallery: Mein Schiff 6 Handed Over to TUI Cruises

German cruise line TUI Cruises celebrated the delivery of its new cruise ship Mein Schiff 6 on May 9, 2017. 

The ship was constructed by Finnish shipbuilder Meyer Turku.

Featuring a length of around 294 meters, Mein Schiff 6 has 15 decks with around 1,267 staterooms and the capacity to carry approximately 2,534 passengers. It is the fourth ship in a series of vessels built in Turku for TUI Cruises.

“We are very happy about the delivery of Mein Schiff 6 in time and excellent quality,” Wybcke Meier, TUI Cruises CEO, said.

“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 with fewer hours than before. At the same time we are ramping up our production volume to meet the demands of our long and stable order book,” Jan Meyer, CEO, said.

With an order book reaching until 2024, Meyer Turku shipyard is facing a gradual ramp up of production in the coming years.

“We are rebuilding the shipyard with heavy investments exceeding 100 million euros for a further increase in output,” Meyer added.
