Five crew members tested positive for coronavirus
TUI Cruises on July 29 announced that five crew members hired to work aboard the 'Mein Schiff 1' were tested positive for COVID-19. They werre currently in a facility on land rented by TUI Cruises.
First blue cruise cancelled
TUI Cruises canceled the restarting of the 'Mein Schiff 1' which was scheduled to resume cruises on July 31 out of Kiel. The reason for canceling the cruise was because the company allegedly had a problem bringing back crew on board. Cruiselawnews reported that, according to two crew members who were on the ship, the true reason for the cancellation was that seven crew members tested positive for COVID-19. The 'Mein Schiff 1' had already completed its crew manning in Bremerhaven. Those who tested positive were all newly joined crew members.
Mein Schiff 1 restarts cruises from Kiel
TUI Cruises will be doubling capacity and spinning up a second ship as the 'Mein Schiff 1' will restart service at 60 percent occupancy out of Kiel in August. This follows the 'Mein Schiff 2', which resumes service later this month with short cruises from Hamburg. The 'Mein Schiff 1' will sail cruises to nowhere (known as "Blue Cruises") from Kiel, offering three- and four-day short sailings. This gives guests the opportunity to enjoy the experience on board with the premium all-inclusive concept and at the same time treat themselves to a break at sea, of course with an adapted and expanded health and safety concept. The basis for the resumption of cruise operations is the guiding principles of the responsible authorities, which were developed in coordination with CLIA Germany and the shipping companies as well as in cooperation with experts, the company said. Pricing starts at 599 euro per person for a balcony stateroom.News schreiben
