On 23rd June the keel of the Mein Schiff 5 was laid at Meyer Turku shipyard’s dry dock. Before the keel-laying ceremony, the start of production of the sister ship Mein Schiff 6 took place in the shipyard’s construction hall.
The Mein Schiff 5 and Mein Schiff 6 will be delivered in 2016 and 2017. Like their sister ships (Mein Schiff 3 and Mein Schiff 4), they will be approximately 294m long, have 15 decks with around 1,253 staterooms and the capacity to carry approximately 2,506 passengers.
