Carrying 1,615 visitors including passengers and crew, this is the ship’s maiden call to the country. Mein Schiff 6 will make another 10 calls to Doha Port during the 2021-22 season. Nine of these will be turnaround trips, with passengers beginning and ending their journey in Qatar. In this trip, 457 passengers will be joining the cruise ship from Doha.
Qatar Tourism has a long-standing association with the German travel and tourism company TUI Group starting with a partnership agreement between the two entities signed in 2016. As a result of this agreement, in the 2017-18 season, mega cruise Mein Schiff 5 made seven visits, including its maiden voyage to Doha Port, with another 10 visits during 2019-20 season. (TNN)
