STX Finland laid the keel for TUI’s Mein Schiff 4 at their Turku yard today. The ship, which is a sister to Mein Schiff 3 that is also under construction at the same yard, will enter service already in the spring of 2015, with bookings opening on March 12, in just over two weeks from now.

A few more details came out today in federal court about the brutal attack on a passenger aboard Holland America’s Nieuw Amsterdam two weeks ago. The hourlong proceeding was a bail hearing for the 28-year-old former room service steward who is alleged to have attacked the 31-year-old woman.
The additional details that came out only made the story more grim.
The complete articles appeared in the e-mail edition of Cruise News Daily delivered to our subscribers.
