Highlights for guests & crew

The cruise experience includes a large culinary offer with the “Ganz Schön Gesund” (especially healthy) concept, the award-winning SPA and sports area, child and youth care and a first-class entertainment program. Well-known faces such as the chefs Johann Lafer or Tim Raue can be seen regularly on the ships or even have their own restaurant concept on board. The annual highlights on board the Mein Schiff fleet are event cruises like the Full Metal Cruise and the Jeckliner Cruise at Carnival time.


One Fleet. One Crew.

The Mein Schiff Crew

More than 45 nationalities and countless job opportunities – our diversity is our strength. The Mein Schiff Crew stands for diversity, openness, trust and mutual respect. Since you as the crew not only live, learn and work together, but also spend your free time together, we offer you great opportunities to do so:

Your “Rookie Coach” will help you to find your way on board and feel comfortable right from the start. The Crew Welfare Program regularly organises events and crew excursions, such as a barbecue in the Caribbean or a safari in South Africa. There are also great opportunities to spend your free time in the crew area: a gym, a sauna, a sun deck or the crew fair – you can even stay in the guest areas. This creates a unique sense of community – a World. Class. Team!
