MV Mein Schiff 1, a Century class cruise ship, owned and operated by TUI Cruises, arrived in Colombo yesterday.

Having sailed from Mumbai on November 15, she berthed at the Unity Container Terminal of Sri Lanka Ports Authority (SLPA) at 0700hrs, last morning.
Built at Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany, the vessel has a LOA of 265 m and a passenger capacity of 1,950. The vessel arrived with 1872 passengers on board and around 1500 of them embarked on shore excursions that included Kandy.    
Having originally served with celebrity cruises, she was transferred to the fleet of TUI Cruises in 2009. MV Mein Schiff 1 offers a wide range of amusement, leisure and sport amenities that makes every sailing a very special experience, for both adults and children.
A ceremony was held on board to mark her maiden call in Colombo and plaques were exchanged between the SLPA, the local agents and the Vessel’s Command. Plaques were exchanged between SLPA Executive Director Sanjeewa Wijeratne and Vessel Master Capt. Rolf Noack and Shipping Agency Services (Pvt.) Ltd Executive Director Capt. L.N. Jayasooriya and the Vessel Master. 
The vessel left Colombo last evening headed towards her next destination Langkawi, in Malaysia. The vessel was represented in Colombo by Shipping Agency Services (Pvt.) Ltd and ground tours were handled by Aitken Spence Travels (Pvt.) Ltd. Friendly discussions were also had on board MV Mein Chiff 1 in Colombo between the Vessel Master, vessel operators and SLPA on Sri Lanka’s emerging trades of travel and tourism and satisfactory services being rendered by the SLPA to boost tourism and related industries at its premises.
