The new Mein Schiff 1, (My Ship 1) the first in the next generation of TUI Cruises ships, was floated out at Meyer Turku on Friday.

This cruise line is aimed at the German cruise market, which is now bigger than the British one.

The newbuild takes the design to the next level, and is 20 meters longer than the previous generation of Mein Schiff ships built in Finland.

The added length boosts capacity and allowed the cruise line to make substantial changes to the interior spaces, according to a statement. Delivery is set for next spring, followed by a sister ship in early 2019.
