Last week we talked about new cruise ships that are going to join their fleets this year (you can read this article here). Now it’s time to return to one of our favorite sections and take a closer look at the construction of these groundbreaking liners.
As you have probably guessed, we’ll start with a TUI Cruises’ representative that will enter service already within days.

Neue Mein Schiff 2 construction began on February 13th, 2017 at Meyer Turku shipyard in Finland.
In October 2017, the cruise line celebrated the ship's keel laying.

The construction process continued day and night, in summer and winter, rain or shine - and the ship has been gradually taking her elegant shape.
