Mein Schiff 1, a Century class cruise ship, owned and operated by TUI Cruises, arrived in Colombo yesterday.

Having sailed from Mumbai on 15 November, she berthed at the Unity Container Terminal in the Colombo Port at 0700 Hrs last morning. 

Built at Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany, the vessel has a LOA of 265 m and a passenger capacity of 1,950. The vessel arrived with 1,872 passengers on board and around 1,500 of them embarked on shore excursions.  

Having originally served with Celebrity Cruises, she was transferred to the fleet of TUI Cruises in 2009.

Mein Schiff 1 offers a wide range of amusement, leisure and sport amenities that make every sailing a very special experience for both adults and children.

A ceremony was held on board to mark her maiden call in Colombo and plaques were exchanged between the Sri Lanka Ports Authority, the local Agents and the vessel’s Command.

The vessel was expected to sail at 2300 Hrs last evening headed towards her next destination Langkawi, in Malaysia. 

The vessel was represented in Colombo by Shipping Agency Services Ltd. and ground tours were handled by Aitken Spence Travels Ltd.
