About TUI Cruises
Young and young-at-heart, sophisticated travellers love TUI Cruises’ onboard lifestyle. The German cruise line offers an all inclusive concept and casual atmosphere. Besides steady quality, TUI Cruises also convinces its passengers with music events and theme cruises. The main onboard language is German.
Since May 2009 “Mein Schiff 1” is operated by TUI Cruises. Built in 1996 for Celebrity Cruises, it was rebuilt for about 50 million Euros in 2009 to fit the needs of its new operator.
Atmosphere on Board
The main onboard language is German. The atmosphere is relaxed – similar to an upscale club hotel. Especially middle-aged guests feel very comfortable on board. During the holidays many families are guests aboard. They appreciate the relaxed atmosphere, the possibility to do sports and the large variety of fine dining options. Almost all food, beverages and gratuities are already included in the cruise-price. This distinguishes TUI Cruises from other cruise lines.
Food and Beverages
The dining-options on board “Mein Schiff 1” are manifold and mostly included in the cruise-price. So is the food in the large and very good buffet restaurant. The bakery offers freshly prepared paninis or tarts which are also for free. The restaurant “Atlantic” is divided into three theme restaurants: you may eat 5-course meals, Mediterranean or Asian food. All of these are also included. Another Bistro which is opened day and night offers smaller meals and snacks. People who enjoy fish should take a meal at “Gosch Sylt”. For an additional charge, you are able to enjoy the exquisite Japanese restaurant “Hanami”, visit the Steak restaurant “Surf and Turf” or the specialty restaurant “Richards”. Drinks in most restaurants and bars are also for free (house wine, beer, sparkling wine, water, soft drinks, cocktails and long drinks).
Entertainment, Sports and Relaxation
The “Diamond Bar” at the rear offers a magnificent sea-view with very classy evening entertainment. You should also visit the Show Lounge where changing events with acrobatics, musicals, magic and comedy are hosted. Even cooking shows, a “mystery dinner” and pool deck parties are offered on board! And if you want to party you should dance in the “AbtanzBar” until the early morning!
“Mein Schiff 1” offers a large fitness area and aerobic classes. The extensive wellness area features a large sea-view sauna and a steam-room. For an additional fee you can choose from the vast range of massages and “feel-good-treatments” or arrange a sports session with a personal trainer. Sporting excursions are also offered on board. You may join unusual mountain bike tours, paddle boat tours or go scuba-diving and snorkeling.
The vessels of TUI Cruises offer German-speaking cruises with great value for money and are suited for all who appreciate comfort, want to join activities and enjoy tasty dinners. The “Premium-All-Inclusive” concept already includes many services that come at charge on other cruises.
