Conversion Work Continues to Make Celebrity Galaxy into Mein Schiff

This video from TUI Cruises shows the continuing conversion of Celebrity Galaxy into Mein Schiff, which will be the German line's first ship. TUI Cruises is the partnership between Royal Caribbean Cruises and the German travel giant TUI.

Even if you don't speak German, you'll probably find this video of the drydock work interesting. This one shows the portion of the project on the ship's aft end which adds a "ducktail" to the stern to counterbalance the extra weight being added for additional staterooms and balconies. The month-long project is being carried out at Lloyd Werft in Bremerhaven.
