COVID issues cause TUI to suspend 2021 Mein Schiff 5 programme

September 15, 2021 Cruise News No Comments

TUI Cruises has announced that it is suspending the Asian deployment of  Mein Schiff 5, which was due to start in November 2021, and taking the 2,500-passenger vessel out of service.

TUI says, “The Mein Schiff 5 will initially take a break starting at the end of October”, adding, “The reason for this is that we unfortunately, cannot start the Asia season with Mein Schiff 5 in November as planned due to the ongoing corona-related travel restrictions in the region.”

Mein Schiff 5 was previously scheduled for a season in Asia from November 2021 to May 2022. with sailings to and from Dubai, Singapore, Vietnam, Hong Kong and Japan part of the schedule.

TUI said that the crew of Mein Schiff 5 has been informed about the decision, and individual solutions for the ongoing contracts are currently being found for all crew members.

TUI did not specify whether the Asian program will be starting later or if an alternative deployment is being considered for the Mein Schiff 5 after its break, which has been operating Greek Islands itineraries since May.
