Mein Schiff I To Cruise Asia In 2015

German cruise line TUI Cruises is to venture to Asia for the first time in November 2015. The line, a joint venture between TUI and Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd, is deploying the 2,681-passenger Mein Schiff I to the region, homeporting in the Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore to offer cruises to Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam.


Asia with Malaysia

Cruising the Straits of Malacca, this itinerary first takes guests from Singapore to Port Klang, arriving at the gateway to the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur after a sea-day. Mein Schiff I overnights in-port before continuing north towards the idyllic islands of Langkawi and Phuket. She next sets course for Penang and then heading back to Singapore with a day at sea.


Asia with Thailand

This 7-night itinerary begins with an overnight port stay in Singapore, after which Mein Schiff I sails out to the South China Sea enroute to Koh Samui. From there, the ship crosses the Gulf of Thailand to arrive in Laem Chabang, where guests can head to Bangkok and Pattaya. 2 more sea days await guests prior to disembarkation back in Singapore.


Asia with Vietnam

Following a triangular course, guests sailing on this itinerary will first visit Koh Samui after an overnight stay in Singapore and a day cruising northwards along the east coast of peninsular Malaysia. Turning east, Mein Schiff I spends another day at sea before docking at Phu My, where the sights and sounds of Ho Chi Minh City is a short drive away. A third sea-day allows ample time to soak up the tropical sun or enjoy the ship’s facilities before arrival back in Singapore.


For a more detailed Southeast Asian exploration, the itineraries may be combined back-to-back to create 14-day, multiple-country voyages. TUI Cruises also expects guests to include pre- and post-cruise stays in Singapore.


Owned and operated by TUI Cruises since 2009, Mein Schiff I features a variety of accommodation, dining and recreation facilities tailored for the German-speaking market. The ship is scheduled for a dry dock refurbishment at Lloyd Werft Bremerhaven in late April 2014, which will bring her up-to-date with the line’s newbuild Mein Schiff III, due to join the fleet in May 2014.
