TUI Cruises Mein Schiff 5 baptism VIP celebration

Operated by TUI Cruises, the newest Cruising Ship ” Mein Schiff 5 ” has entered in service.

To celebrate this world-class event, a huge show was produced to baptize ” Mein Schiff 5 ” in Travemünde, North Germany.

For this VIP ceremony, the company Les Oiseaux du Paradis was chosen to create a unique performance in collaboration with the singer/songwriter Lena Meyer-Landrot.

The story behind the scene :

With Arthur Castro (Artistic director of TUI Cruises), we went on board on the newest cruise ship “ Mein Schiff 5 “ in Copenhagen, Denmark. 

Few hours later, the boat ” Mein Schiff 5 ” started sailing and we crossed the Baltic Sea on the way to Keil, Germany.

Then, the set-up on the stage and other technical matters were built over the pool deck.

Around midnight, with 97 % of humidity and 12 celsius, we made the dress rehearsal… Very very challenging conditions.
