For the past five years the Mein Schiff fleet’s Grün & Fair excursions have been very popular with guests. As well as introducing guests to regional natural and cultural treasures, the excursion programme also helps to ensure they remain intact.
Last year, more than 47,000 guests who took part in a sustainable excursion helped to raise EUR 236,295 through the affiliated donation scheme. The lion’s share of the funds raised – EUR 140,000 – will go to the TUI Care Foundation. “The TUI Care Foundation currently has 38 projects in 25 countries. The donation from TUI Cruises will help us to advance our work in those projects,“ said Thomas Ellerbeck, Chairman of the TUI Care Foundation’s Board of Trustees.
Another EUR 60,000 is being donated to SECORE International for its coral restoration projects. Pottwale e.V. will receive EUR 36,295 for the Whale Protection Centre and its education work on Dominica, which was devastated by Hurricane Maria.
