Mein Schiff 4 Wiki

Schiff 4 is TUI's second newbuild vessel constructed in Turku Finland. In 2015, the STX shipbuilding company was bought out by Meyer Werft GmbH. All the new TUI cruise vessels were built with energy-efficient solutions and environmentally friendly powerplants that reduce emissions by 30% in comparison to other ships of similar size. Designers of the new TUI liners are Wilson Butler Architects, together with CM Design and Tillberg Design. Fun fact is, that each ship in this new series brings nearly 5000 person-years labor to the Turku shipyard. Each ship's construction engages 800 out of all 1400 workers at the shipbuilding yard. The percentage of German travelers on TUI ships is ~80%.

TUI Mein Schiff 4 cruise ship construction

The vessel was launched (floated out from drydock) on October 10, 2014, and delivered to TUI on May 8, 2015. The christening ceremony was on June 5, 2015, held in Port Kiel Germany and led by Godmother Franziska van Almsick (1978-born German swimmer and Olympic medalist - in 1992 at Barcelona Olympic Games).

TUI Mein Schiff 4 cruise ship

During the inaugural 2014 season, TUI Schiff 4 operated itineraries in Northern Europe (Norway Fjords, Baltic/Scandinavia and Russia). During winter, the liner was deployed for roundtrip 7-day Canary Islands cruises leaving from homeport Las Palmas (Gran Canaria).

TUI Schiff 4 refurbishment 2020 review

During the ship's drydock in 2020 February (at Chantier Naval de Marseille Shipyard), Schiff 4 was upgraded with shoreside power capabilities. The technology allows the berthed vessel to shut down its diesel engines while in port and to receive electricity (from the city's power grid) via dockside facility.

The USD 20 million drydocking project (February 3-13, 2020) also included renovations to main onboard facilities (restaurants, lounges and bars, pool deck). Completely overhauled (fully refurbished) were La Spezia Restaurant (Italian), Hanami Restaurant (Japanese), Cafe Lounge (French Bistro) and Diamant Bar. Also redesigned were the Lobby Hall (Reception Desk, Tours Desk) and Sturmfrei (teen lounge).

The project was managed by Trimline UK (Southampton-based interior outfitting company) via partnership with CM Design (project management) and Studio Aisslinger (furniture designer Werner Aisslinger). Along with the regularly scheduled maintenance works (hull cleaning, coating, repairs) the cruise liner also received custom-made designer furniture and 40+ joinery items, including booth seating and a wine chiller cabinet.
