The new ship is about 20mtr longer than TUI Cruises’ fleet mates at 315mtr and the aft deck has been re-modelled with plenty of glass. Passenger capacity is 2,894 with double occupancy. In addition to an expansion of the culinary offer with 12 restaurants and bistros, the ship sports 15 bars and lounges and boasts more space for exclusive suites, designed by Spanish architect, Patricia Urquiola.
An extended X-Lounge on deck 14 is available for suite and junior suite guests whilst Deck 15 features a new outdoor X-bar with loungers and a jacuzzi on deck 16. Another sun deck for suite guests, the X deck, is offered on deck 6 at the aft of the ship. This exclusive outdoor area is equipped with self-service stations for light refreshments and outdoor showers.Mein Schiff 2 consumes about 40% less energy than a 'conventional' cruise ship of the same size. This is achieved by an integrated energy management system, innovative lighting controls, LED use, an eco-friendly underwater silicone coating and a hydrodynamic hull shape. In addition, air conditioning generators have an innovative control unit and frequency-regulated motors to avoid wasting energy. For that purpose, 19,000 control points are fitted throughout the ship.Mein Schiff 2 also has scrubbers and catalytic converters. Meier said TUI and Meyer Turku had carefully weighed the use of LNG during the contracting of Mein Schiff 1 and 2 but ultimately opted against it due to concerns about the availability of this alternative fuel. Hamburg culinary fare features onboard with fish, seafood and sushi available in the Fisch restaurant Fischmarkt (formerly Gosch) on deck 12. The new Hoheluft Bar is found on Deck 15 and the Ebbe & Flut Beer Bar on Deck 5, is created in partnership with the Brewery Ratsherrn from Hamburg. A creative kitchen features on deck 5, where guests can take part in workshops and tastings while the two main restaurants Atlantic Classic and Atlantic Mediterranean, have a new design and the atrium has been remastered. The new Ganzschön Gesund Bistro on Deck 5 focuses on the trend towards healthy eating.
For the first time in the Mein Schiff fleet, the fitness area is at the top of deck 15. The 438 mtr long jogging track has a gradient of up to 6.7% and glistens in the dark thanks to fluorescent lighting.The all-weather Arena is redesigned and now completely covered and includes a climbing wall and a large extendable movie/TV screen. Both the jogging track and the Arena are designed and fitted by German design agency 3deluxe.
The impressive new 50 mtr. wide steel and glass window structure that makes up the new Diamond at the aft of the ship just above the propellers is a good example how we combine architectural design with our engineering skills supported by sophisticated computer models.
TUI's new Mein Schiff 2 took the name of the old Schiff 2 (launched in 1997). In 2018, the old Schiff 2 was sold to "Marella Cruises" (TUI's UK brand line). Initially was announced that in March 2019, the old vessel will be transferred to Marella Cruises (fka Thomson) and operated as Marella Explorer 2. However, in March 2018, TUI announced that the old Schiff 2 stays in the fleet - under the name Mein Schiff Herz.
