Finnish shipbuilder Meyer Turku said it has delivered the newly built cruise ship Mein Schiff 6, the fourth in a series for Germany’s TUI Cruises.

 
“We are very happy about the delivery of Mein Schiff 6 in time and excellent quality,” said TUI Cruises CEO, Wybcke Meier. “With this ship we can again deliver the high TUI Cruises standard to our passengers and exceed it with fine tunings and small surprises.”
 
The vessel was handed over to its new owners during a ceremony at the Meyer Turku shipyard.
 
Meyer Turku CEO, Jan Meyer, noted the importance of continuous improvement of technology, ship design, production processes and the shipbuilding team: “At the shipyard we have a very interesting working mode. Every one to two years we develop a new ship type and then we further refine it in the following sister ships.”
 
“With Mein Schiff 6 our goal was to improve further from previous ships with a few fine tunings based on passenger feedback and at the same time build it with fewer hours than before,” Meyer explained. “At the same time we are ramping up our production volume to meet the demands of our long and stable order book.”
