#SIGNATURE CRUISESHIP – Cruiseship Mein Schiff 2 made her statement with a strikingly refreshing bold livery scheme as she swept across Dublin Bay last evening. Rather than the all too common all-white painted cruiseships, her looks also cut a dash today while visiting Cobh, writes Jehan Ashmore.

Her name is repeated in huge joined-up writing and accompanied by electric-blue coloured words emblazoned across the 262m long 956 passenger capacity vessel. The dynamic livery scheme reaches above the lifeboat deck, leaving the rest of the accommodation superstructure typically painted in white and her German operator, TUI who are represented by a red symbol positioned on the funnel casing.

Mein Schiff 2 measures 77,302 tonnes and the Century-class ship was commissioned for Celebrity Cruises as the Mercury in 1997 from the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg.

This evening she sets sail for the Channel Islands to anchor offshore of St. Peter Port, the capital of Guernsey.
