German cruise line TUI Cruises has reached an agreement with Finland’s shipbuilder Meyer Turku for the construction of a new cruise ship, to be named Mein Schiff 7.
Scheduled to be delivered from the yard in 2023, the new vessel would be based on the design of New Mein Schiff 1 and 2.
The parties informed that the agreement is still subject to financing, which is now being worked on with the banks and Finnvera.
“We are very thankful that TUI Cruises is entrusting us with building another ship to their fleet of modern and beautiful Mein Schiffs,” Jan Meyer, CEO of Meyer Turku, said.
“It will bring further good work to Turku shipyard as well as the Finnish maritime cluster. This is what we are preparing for with our recruitments and investments,” Meyer added.
