Meyer Turku has delivered the Mein Schiff 5 to TUI Cruises 10 days ahead of schedule, according to a statement from the Finnish shipyard.

Wybcke Meier, CEO, and Frank Kuhlmann, CFO, of TUI Cruises, were present at the delivery along with Dr. Jan Meyer, CEO of Meyer Turk shipyard.

“Although this is already our third newbuild, it’s still incredibly exciting to see a new ship grow from the first steel cutting to the finishing interior touches. In a good two-year construction period, countless people have dedicated themselves to turning ten million components into our ship. We are looking forward to finally putting Mein Schiff 5 into service in mid-July,” said Meier.

 Meyer added: “We had the unique opportunity to build on the high standard and success of Mein Schiff 3 and Mein Schiff 4 to further perfect this series of ships with Mein Schiff 5. We are immensely proud of the result. This is in no small measure due to the trust and excellent cooperation with TUI.”
