On May 11th 2018, around 2,500 guests were welcomed onboard the Mein Schiff 1, for the ship’s official christening in the Port of Hamburg.

Carmen Morosan, Anja Wilde, Virginia Quintairos, Amaury Du Williencourt, Simon O’Sullivan, and Serafin Blazquez were among those invited, joining senior executives from TUI onboard for an evening of dinner and entertainment.

The celebrations kicked off with famous German personality Yared Dibaba, followed by aerial acrobats performing impressive feats from the surrounding container bridges onto the LED-lit pool deck. The ceremony closed with a spectacular firework display.

The event was one of the big highlights during the Port of Hamburg’s 829th (!!!) birthday celebrations, in which 10 cruise ships and over a million visitors were expected to visit the area!
