New Mein Schiff 1, a next-generation cruise ship built for German cruise line TUI Cruises, was floated out from Meyer Turku’s dry dock in Finland.

Following the completion of its assembly from giant blocks and the float-out, the ship will undergo further interior outfitting before delivery. 

New Mein Schiff 1 is an evolution of the Mein Schiff 6, which was delivered to the company in May this year.

At 315 meters, the newbuilding will be 20 meters longer than its predecessor. The delivery is scheduled for spring 2018.

New Mein Schiff 1 will be named in Hamburg on May 11, 2018, and begin operating shortly afterwards, according to the company.

“With the new Mein Schiff 1, TUI cruises creates a whole new ship generation in its fleet. It is based on our existing newbuilds, which we have again developed and supplemented with new attractions,” Wybcke Meier, CEO of TUI Cruises, commented.

“So far we could only see the design developments of New Mein Schiff 1 in parts or in our computer renderings. But to see them in reality is always again fascinating…We are in parallel rebuilding and modernizing the shipyard with new recruitments and our investments. A concrete sign is the preparations for the erection of our new gantry crane. This complicated heavy lifting procedure will start right away after New Mein Schiff 1 has left the dock,” Jan Meyer, Meyer Turku CEO, noted.

New Mein Schiff 1 is the fifth ship built by Meyer Turku shipyard for German TUI Cruises.
