Six and Counting

Meyer Turku laid the keel today for Mein Schiff 6. While it may look like Mein Schiff 5, there are significant differences “under the hood.” This is the fourth ship constructed by Meyer Turku for the line, which is a partnership between TUI Travel and Royal Caribbean.

The block put into place today is the first of 77 that will comprise the ship. Meyer Turku CEO Jan Meyer noted in his remarks that it will now take only seven months for the construction work to be completed, and then the yard can move to the outfitting and testing of the systems.
