Refurbishment of Mein Schiff 3 at the Hamburg shipyard Blohm & Voss. From 25 September to 6 October, Mein Schiff 3 went into dry dock Elbe 17 in Hamburg for a refurbishment. Within eleven days, the vessel of TUI Cruises underwent several modernisations and redesigns during her regular stay at the shipyard. And on deck 4, the Grööne Bar has been created – a meeting place that focuses on the topic of sustainability. In its new splendour, Mein Schiff 3 will now set off on an eight-day voyage from Hamburg via Lisbon, Cadiz and Gibraltar to Mallorca.
"Numerous shipyard workers, technicians and engineers as well as the approximately 1,000 crew members have been making Mein Schiff 3 fit for winter over the past few days," says Ulrich Voss, Director Shipmanagement & Hotel Refurbishment. "In addition to routine maintenance of the machinery and technology, for example, more than 600 square metres of handmade floor tiles with a Mediterranean flair were laid in the Anckelmannsplatz buffet restaurant." Furthermore, the X-Sun Deck was enormously enlarged to give guests an unobstructed view of the sea and the pool for exclusive relaxation. And the really popular indoor pool has been transformed into an oasis of experience thanks to new tiles in wood decor, elegant lounge furniture and generous planting.
