Mein Schiff 7 Wiki

Like the previous shipbuilding orders, TUI's Schiff 7 project was financed with around 80% debt-financing and 20% covered by TUI's own funds.

Schiff 7 is approx 20 m (66 ft) longer compared to the previous "Mein Schiff" series (ships 5 and 6). The added length allows larger passenger capacity, substantial changes to indoor spaces and adding new attractions. All the new TUI cruise vessels were built with energy-efficient solutions and environmentally friendly power plants that reduce emissions by 30% in comparison to other ships of similar size. Designers of the new 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 around 80%.

In early-November 2021, TUI announced that postpones the order/ship's launch by a year - from 2023-Q2 to 2024-Q2.

The vessel's construction (Meyer Turku yard number/hull 1404) officially started on June 14, 2022, with the steel-cutting ceremony held at Meyer Werft in Turku Finland. The special event was attended by Wybcke Meier (TUI Cruises' CEO) and Tim Meyer (Meyer Turku's CEO). During the ceremony was announced that Schiff 7's design was slightly altered to allow storage space for methanol.

Mein Schiff 7's engines run on LSMDO (low-sulfur marine diesel oil). The liner is also fitted with shore-power connectivity, which allows emissions-free operations while berthed in ports (or ~40% of the working time). Schiff 7 is also equipped with a modern waste treatment system that reduces the organic waste quantity and prepares it for further on-land use.

The onboard powerplant is based on four Wartsila marine diesel engines (total output 48 MW), while the propulsion system is based on azimuth thrusters (total power output 28 MW).
