Travemünde is made for watching ships. This is why the cruise ship 'Mein Schiff 5' will be christened in Travemünde on 15th July 2016.
'The unique location of the port convinced us to christen our newest feel-good-ship in Lübeck-Travemünde' states Mrs. Wybcke Meier, CEO of TUI Cruises. Reinhard Meyer, Minister of Economy, Labour, Transport and Technology of Schleswig-Holstein says: 'The cruise industry is a booming sector of economy with a high potential for Schleswig-Holstein. It strengthens the maritime flair of our Federal Land and is a highly attractive factor for the further development of tourism. Therefore, I am extremely happy that after this year's launching ceremony in Kiel another port in our region was chosen for the christening ceremony of 'Mein Schiff 5'. This is an excellent signal for the cruise shipping industry in Schleswig-Holstein.'
Lena Meyer-Landrut - godmother to the newest feel-good vessel
The 25 year old singer and songwriter is going to break the obligatory bottle of champagne over the hull of Mein Schiff 5. A remarkable moment for the young singer. 'It is incredibly exciting and fascinating to be allowed to christen Mein Schiff 5. I have never done this before and will probably do it only once in my lifetime. I cannot wait for the day of the christening.'
