Review of Mein Schiff 3

TUI Mein Schiff 3 cruise ship is owned by TUI Cruises and built by Meyer Turku Shipyard (Finland). The vessel is TUI's first newbuild, followed by the same-series sister ships Mein Schiff 4 (2015), Mein Schiff 5 (2016), Mein Schiff 6 (2017), Mein Schiff 1 (2018) and Mein Schiff 2 (2019).

History - construction and ownership

TUI Cruises is a Germany-based Joint venture cruise company of TUI Group (British-German travel and tourism corporation) and RCCL (Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd - US passenger shipping company). TUI started operations in 2009, targeting predominantly the German-speaking market with a premium travel vacation product. German is the main onboard language on all TUI Schiffs (ships). TUI's sister-brand is Marella Cruises (UK source market).

TUI Mein Schiff 3 cruise ship

The 99,430-ton, 2,506-passenger Mein Schiff 3 was built at STX Finland Turku shipyard and delivered to TUI Cruises on 22 May 2014. Another identical vessel, Mein Schiff 4, was completed in 2015. The two cruise ships use environmentally friendly power plants and energy efficient solutions in order to cut the emissions by 30% compared to the other vessel with identical size.

TUI Mein Schiff 3 cruise ship construction

TUI Cruises made significant investment towards the improvement of the fuel consumption and to maintain high environmental friendliness standard. Curious moment before the construction of the ships at the STX Finland in the end of 2012 was that the Finnish shipbuilder was in serious financial troubles and if the deal for the construction of the two identical ships was not signed, the company would have declared bankruptcy. At the end, STX Finland was awarded the needed amount of money by the Finnish Government.
