Last week, Meyer Werft shipyard in Turku laid the keel and officially cut the first steel of the new Mein Schiff 2. In line with an old shipbuilding tradition, some coins were placed under the keel block to bring luck for the ship. The keel laying ceremony for TUI Cruises’ sixth new build was attended by representatives from the shipping line and Meyer Werft shipyard.
“With the new Mein Schiff 1 and the new Mein Schiff 2, we will have two great new ships so that our fleet will be well positioned for the future. It is impressive to see how these ships are increasingly taking shape at the shipyard,” said Wybcke Meier, CEO TUI Cruises.
