From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

TUI Cruises is a subdivision of TUI AG, having started business in 2009 in addition to the company's Hapag-Lloyd Kreuzfahrten. The company's concept is similar to the one of AIDA Cruises, considering young couples and families the main target group. TUI Cruises is a joint venture of TUI AG und Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.


For lack of shipyard new-building capacity, the company started business with the acquisition and conversion of the former Celebrity Galaxy (77.713 BRZ, 264,0 m), built at Meyer Werft in Papenburg. The ship was converted for 50 Million € at Lloyd Werft in Bremerhaven and christened in Hamburg on May, 15th 2009 to the name Mein Schiff ("My Ship"). TUI Cruises intends to acquire two more cruise ships by 2013.
