TUI Group tests waters with three-night social-distanced cruise

A TUI ship has set sail for the first time since the cruise industry was shut down by coronavirus.

Cruise ship Mein Schiff 2 set sail for a weekend cruise in the North Sea on Friday night, with 1,200 passengers on board, compared to its normal 2,900 capacity.

The ship sailed from the northern port of Hamburg toward Norway, and passengers will spend the weekend at sea with no land stops before returning to Germany on Monday.

TUI Group CEO Fritz Joussen told a German news agency: "Interest in holidays at sea remains very high."
