Mein Schiff Herz-Marella Voyager Review

Review of Mein Schiff Herz-Marella Voyager

The 1997-built Marella Voyager cruise ship is currently sailing as "Mein Schiff Herz" (the old "Mein Schiff 2"). The liner was built for Celebrity Cruises, renamed "Celebrity Mercury" in 2008, joined TUI (as "Mein Schiff 2") in 2009 and in 2019 was renamed "Mein Schiff Herz", after the newbuild Mein Schiff 2 took the old name upon entering TUI's fleet.

The vessel (IMO number 9106302) is currently Malta-flagged (MMSI 249053000) and registered in Valletta.

IMPORTANT: In mid-October 2021, TUI announced that Schiff Herz will be transferred in 2023 to Marella Cruises UK. The last voyage for TUI was scheduled for April 6, 2023. Following a drydock, the boat will be renamed "Marella Voyager", starting operations for Marella on June 3, 2023.

NOTE: CruiseMapper's Mein Schiff Herz schedule (thru April 6, 2023) also includes Marella Voyager's schedule (June 3, 2023, onward) with departures from homeport Palma de Mallorca.

History - construction and ownership

TUI Cruises is a UK-based joint venture cruise company (50-50) of TUI Group (British-German travel and tourism corporation) and RCCL-Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd (USA-based passenger shipping company). TUI started cruise shipping operations in 2009, targeting predominantly the German-speaking market with a premium travel vacation product. German and English are the main onboard languages on all TUI Schiffs (ships). TUI's sister-brands are Marella Cruises UK and Hapag-Lloyd-Cruises.

Marella Cruises (formerly Thomson Cruises UK) is a British passenger shipping company and trademarked travel brand owned by TUI Group. The company entered the cruise market in 1973 via Thomson Holidays (now TUI UK), but due to rising fuel costs, this service was terminated in 1976. Thomson Cruises restarted passenger shipping operations in 1995. The Thomson brand was renamed to "Marella Cruises" in 2018. Marella's parent company (TUI Group) owns hotels, the sister-companies TUI Cruises, Marella Cruises, Hapag-Lloyd Cruises, the travel brands International Expeditions and Zegrahm Expeditions, also aircraft and the airlines Corsair International (France), TUI Airways (UK), TUI fly Nordic (Sweden), TUI fly Belgium, TUI fly Deutschland, TUI fly the Netherlands.

Mein Schiff Herz cruise ship (old Mein Schiff 2)

The vessel was delivered on November 2, 1997, to Celebrity Cruises as Celebrity Mercury. It was decommissioned in February 2011 and transferred to TUI in March 2011. In March-May 2011, the ship was in drydock (at Lloyd Werft Bremerhaven) and officially christened (Mein Schiff 2) on May 14, 2011. The 2011 rebuilding project cost the shipowner around EUR 50 million

The 1900-passenger ship Celebrity Mercury debuted in 1997 as the last of all three Century-class vessels. The sisterships (Celebrity Galaxy and Celebrity Century) are currently named Marella Explorer (formerly Mein Schiff 1) and Marella Explorer 2 (formerly SkySea Golden Era).

Mein Schiff Herz entered service for TUI with passenger capacity 1912 (double occupancy/lower berths) and 956 staterooms (652 outside, of which 427 with balconies). Marella Voyager's capacity is 1904 passengers (952 staterooms).

Mein Schiff Herz cruise ship (old Mein Schiff 2)

After starting operations for TUI, Schiff 2 was homeported in Germany (Hamburg and Kiel) in 2011-2012. In the period Fall 2012 through November 2013, the boat was deployed in the Mediterranean. During winter were operated Caribbean cruises. For winter season 2014-2015, the liner was deployed to Middle East (Arabian Sea) for roundtrips from Dubai.

In May 2015, RCCL decided to transfer the liner to Thomson Cruises (now Marella, within TUI Group) in 2019 under the name "TUI Explorer 2". Initially was announced that in March 2019, the old Schiff 2 (Herz) will be transferred to Marella as "Marella Explorer 2". In March 2018, TUI announced that it will stay in TUI fleet. The new name "Mein Schiff Herz" was announced in late-April.
