Review of TUI Explorer

TUI Explorer cruise ship (the old Mein Schiff 1 of TUI Cruises) was launched in 1996 as mv Galaxy, It was TUI fleet's oldest ship - one of the two Century-class vessels, followed by the old Mein Schiff 2 (former Celebrity Mercury, since 2019 "TUI Explorer 2") and Celebrity Century (currently SkySea Golden Era). The ship was built for the Royal Caribbean’s Celebrity Cruises, renamed to Celebrity Galaxy in 2008, joined TUI fleet in 2009 and entered Thomson Cruises fleet in 2018 under the name TUI Explorer. In 2018, The new TUI Mein Schiff 1 ship took the name of the old one (now TUI Explorer).

TUI Explorer cruise ship (Mein Schiff 1)

History - construction & ownership

The 77,000-ton, 1,870-passenger cruise ship was built for the Royal Caribbean’s Celebrity Cruises company, renamed to "Celebrity Galaxy" in 2008, joined TUI fleet in 2009 and entered Thomson Cruises fleet in 2018 under the name "TUI Explorer". In 2018, the new TUI Mein Schiff 1 (of the company's newest series of vessels) took the name of the old Schiff 1.

TUI Explorer joins Thomson Cruises' fleet as the 3rd vessel transferred from other RCCL lines. It was preceed by TUI Discovery (2015, former Splendour of the Seas) and TUI Discovery 2 (2017, former Legend of the Seas) and followed by TUI Explorer 2 (2018, the old Mein Schiff 2).

TUI Explorer boasts a new-to-the-line kids' mini pool as well as a "really innovative and exciting entertainment" line up. The ship features 10 dining venues, of which another first for Thomson Cruises - a tasting menu-style restaurant in one of the brand new yet-unnamed venues, described as "an intimate space, suited for couples or friends."

The Indigo flagship bar is ship's focal point. A new high-end London style drinking venue named Aperitif links Kora La and Surf & Turf restaurants. Other features include: The Scoops ice-cream parlour with bicycle-themed quirky seating; The Lounge - another new venue with colour-changing bar and brightly-coloured piano; Umi Sushi counter; The Mediterranean dining venue with a glass roof inspired by local tavernas, housing two inclusive restaurants (pizzeria and tapas) and for-fee Hot Stone Grill.

  • TUI Mein Schiff 1 cruise ship was built in Papenburg Germany for Celebrity Cruises (another RCCL brand) as MV Galaxy (later "Celebrity Galaxy"). In May 2009 the ship was transferred to the fleet of the Royal Caribbean's TUI subsidiary line. The vessel was renamed in Hamburg, Germany, to "Mein Schiff" (meaning "my ship") on 15 May 2009. Godmother of the newly refurbished for the staggering EUR 50 million vessel became Ina Muller - a renown German artist and TV personality. Of the same class is also the former Celebrity Mercury cruise ship (Mein Schiff 2).
  • (2014 accident) In August, 2014, the 76 m / 250 ft long ms Princess Marseilles struck Mein Schiff 1 in Bergen, Norway (Fjords itinerary from Hamburg, Germany). Due to mechanical failure, the seismic surveillance ship lost control and its stern struck into the TUI ship's bow. There were no injured passengers/crew or itinerary changes. The TUI ship suffered only minor hull scratches on the bow.
  • Fun fact is, that when was operating as mv Galaxy, the ship hosted the BBC television's docu-soap titled "The Cruise”.
  • The Apollo Group company was contracted for providing all Thomson UK ships with the entire onboard hotel product and services. This includes administration, food staff (preparation and serving), housekeeping staff, also the vessel's provisioning and crewing. Other luxury cruise lines served by Apollo are Oceania (6 ships fleet) and RSSC Regent Seven Seas (4 ships fleet).

TUI Explorer's homeport is Palma de Mallorca (Majorca Island, Spain) with an inaugural roundtrip Mediterranean cruise program starting May 2018. This is Thomson Cruises’ largest vessel so far. Like the other ships in the fleet, TUI Explorer will offer an all-inclusive product designed specifically for the UK market. The ship will have a total of 10 dining venues, among Surf & Turf, Kora La, Snack Shack, Umi Sushi. A new top-deck bar (Indigo) will have panoramic ocean views. In the evenings, the Indigo Bar will double as the ship's casino and disco-nightclub. Another bar (Aperitif) will offer pre- and post dinner cocktails.
