The last port on our cruise aboard the Mein Schiff 2 was Puerto del Rosario on Fuerteventura. Fuerteventura is the second largest island of the Canaries and of volcanic origin. The island is also called Fuerte and is not without reason a popular destination.When I think of Fuerteventura, I think of desert-like landscapes, sandy beaches and volcanic rocks. I was especially looking forward to this stop since I have never been on Fuerteventura, but many times to the canary islands.
La Palma is a small island in the northwest of the Canary Islands and is also known as La Isla Bonita. It is supposed to be the most beautiful island of the Canaries, so I was especially looking forward to this stop. Read More
We reached Madeira shortly before midnight on the first day at sea. The next day was a wonderful sunny day. And not only that, it was even carnival in Funchal. We had the whole day to explore Madeira, because the Mein Schiff 2 was anchored in the port until the next day.
Was die Mein Schiff 2 alles bietet, habe ich bereits im ersten Blogbeitrag erwähnt. Nun möchte ich zwei Fragen beantworten, die ich mir bereits vor der Reise gestellt habe: Worin unterscheidet sich die Mein Schiff 2 von der Mein Schiff 4 wohl und lohnt sich ein X-Lounge Zugang bei einem Premium Alles Inklusive-Konzept? Dafür ging es an Bord der Mein Schiff 2 auf die Kanarentour. Read More

Das erste Mal auf einem Kreuzfahrtschiff über die Weihnachtstage und das erste Mal auf der Mein Schiff 4 – wir blickten diesem Ereignis mit gemischten Gefühlen entgegen. Mit etwas Unsicherheit und gleichzeitig voller Freude und Aufregung! Wie fühlen sich die Weihnachtstage mit so vielen Menschen auf einem Schiff an? Wird das Schiff weihnachtlich geschmückt? Gibt es Glühwein? Gibt es eine Weihnachtsgala? Read More
Christmas Eve in Lanzarote – a beautiful island, its crater and volcanic landscapes can indeed seem dull, but charming with a color range of black and ocher to bright red. Beaches, vineyards, caves and mountains of fire – this is all Lanzarote and we wanted to explore this multi-faceted island on our own with a rental car. If you want to find out about the shore excursions of TUI Cruises, you can take a look at this page (PDF available under “Canaries with Morocco, Mein Schiff 4”). Read More
On the fourth day of our cruise with Mein Schiff 4 we were all day at sea. Only in the evening we reached the beautiful island of Lanzarote. It was a day before Christmas Eve.

But first we experienced a relaxing day aboard Mein Schiff 4 with a full program including a question time with the captain. Read More

Finally we arrived at our first port! Our first port was Agadir in Morocco. We saw the huge containers and a brown landscape behind the small white houses and the industrial area. Yet nothing could be seen from the magic of the arabic desert. The landscape looked a little disappointing, but we were curious to discover the town. Read More
On our first day at sea we wanted to explore the ship. We had a good Nespresso coffee and were curious to see what the Mein Schiff 4 has to offer. We had great weather (up to 25 degrees) and were full of anticipation. What is there to do on a long day at sea? Here are our top 10 activities (all workshops, movies and readings in German!) on seadays on the Mein Schiff 4:
Our first cruise with TUI Cruises and the Mein Schiff 4 (translated to “my ship 4”)! We were more than excited. Would we like it? How is it on an all-inclusive ship and what is different? Is it a feel-good ship? Do the others like it? – After all, we were a large group of 9 people. Will this ship be “our” ship? We were very excited. Read More
