TUI Cruises’ Mein Schiff 5 operating in Greece from May 14

Shore excursions will be permitted when booked via the cruise line directly
TUI Cruises’ Mein Schiff 5 will resume service in Greece May 14 on a series of weeklong sailings to and from Crete.

The ship will initially call Rhodes, Piraeus, Athens and Souda; shore excursions will be permitted when organised directly via the cruise line.

Around 1,000 guests board the vessel today. 

One year since sailing

Wybcke Meier, CEO, TUI Cruises said, ‘We’ve had to wait a long time for this moment… When we hear the ship’s horn and our departure theme for the first time again, it will be an emotional moment not only for our guests but also for the crew.’

The country’s minister for tourism, Harry Theoharis, added, ‘We are very happy to have assisted in this restart process.’ 

TUI Cruises previously sailed from Greece with Mein Schiff 6 last September
