It has been three years since TUI Cruises last cruised in Asia with Mein Schiff 5. On December 6, the vessel arrived at its home port of Singapore and was welcomed by a tugboat salute from a water cannon and local government officials.
Mein Schiff 5 will begin its winter season today with six 14-night voyages from/to Singapore through Southeast Asia. This will be followed by various cruises in Hong Kong and Japan. Mein Schiff Asia Season 5 ends on May 10, 2023.
“After a successful summer season in Europe, with the restart in Asia, we are also getting back to normal in the winter travel areas,” said Wiebke Meyer, CEO of TUI Cruises. “Many Germans are attracted to the warmth in winter. We are therefore pleased that we can now once again offer Far East cruises in addition to classic sun destinations such as the Canary Islands, Dubai or the Caribbean. Especially in these times, our cruises have stable prices and excellent value for money.”
“We are very pleased to welcome TUI Cruises and Mein Schiff 5 back to Singapore and the many cruise guests who will explore and discover the diversity of what our island has to offer,” says Cedric Zhou, Area Director for Central, South, and East Europe by the Singapore Tourist Board.
