Mein Schiff 6 Keel Laid





26 April 2016

The assembly of Mein Schiff 6 started yesterday (April 25) at Meyer Turku with the first grand block that was laid in the building dock. When delivered in 2017, this will be the fourth vessel built in Turku for TUI Cruises.

Wybke Meier, TUI Cruises CEO, noted that Mein Schiff 5 was just a couple of weeks away from her delivery. Meier thanked the shipyard for the successful cooperation.

Coins were placed under the ship's keel block, which according to tradition, should bring luck for the newest Mein Schiff. Representatives of Meyer Turku, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. and the classification society Det Norske Veritas were present at the event.

Mein Schiff 6 will rise 15 decks, stretch 294 meters and have capacity for 2,534 passengers. 90% of all cabins will feature ocean views, 82% will have a balcony.

In addition, the newbuild will feature a number of improvements in passenger amenities and energy efficiency, even over her sister ships Mein Schiff 3, 4 and 5. Due to the advanced exhaust cleaning system using a catalytic converter and a scrubber, sulphur emissions will be reduced by nearly 99% and nitrogen oxide emissions by 75%.

According to Meyer Turku CEO Jan Meyer, it would take only 7 months until the new ship is fully assembled from the grand blocks. Further outfitting, commissioning and testing will then take place.
