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

Discover Lanzarote on Your Own

La Geria Weinanbau auf Lanzerote

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.

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

Der Schornstein vom dem Kreuzfahrtschiff 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
