Unique design and features

Sailing with KONE people flow solutions on board, these ships serve mainly German-speaking cruise travelers, from families and couples to seniors. A concert hall has fitted inside the cruise ship, as well as other unique features to entertain the passengers, such as a 25 meter lap pool and a sea-life exhibit showing the underwater world.

A group of 5 international design offices has made TUI’s first newbuilding look and feel different, adapting to the tastes and expectations of German passengers along with TUI’s concepts. "We appreciate the long lasting and strong collaboration with the shipyard, shipowner and the architects during the design phase of the first ship," says Ari Winter, Head of Marine Business.

"Our ability to provide reliable and energy-efficient people flow solutions with state-of-the-art design has supported TUI Cruises to develop their next generation cruise ships."
