TUI Crew Says Farewell to Mein Schiff 1

Apr 18, 2018

After almost nine years in service Mein Schiff 1, the cruise ship that inaugurated the TUI Cruises brand leaves the fleet. TUI Cruises said goodbye to Mein Schiff on April 11, 2018, having been part of the company from May 15, 2009. The first TUI ship, that launched the German brand with capacity for 1,924 passengers, was purchased by Celebrity Cruises under the name Celebrity Galaxy. 

The last port where the Mein Schiff 1 made a final stopover was Palma de Mallorca. As of that moment, the ship has been transferred to Marella Cruises, and will undergo extensive dry dock during the next month to serve the British cruise company. The new Mein Schiff 1 which will replace the old one, will join the TUI Cruises fleet in May, ushering in a new era of ships, with a capacity of 2,900 guests.
