The last cruise ship of the season berths at Liverpool's Cruise Liner Facility (we can't call it a Terminal as it isn't), the Mien Schiff is Gernaly's largest cruise ship, according to the Liverpool Echo. The ships name translates literally to "My Ship".
MV Mein Schiff 2 is a Century class cruise ship. She was built in 1997 as MV Mercury by the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany for Celebrity Cruises and was later renamed MV Celebrity Mercury before renaming again to her current title, Mein Schiff 2. In 2011, Celebrity Mercury left Celebrity Cruises and is now part of TUI Cruises who now own and operate the vessel.
