Many of the world’s biggest cruise ships are to be manufactured in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. In 2016, Genting Group – a rapidly growing international travel brand that is diversifying into ocean and river cruises and yacht and shipbuilding – bought three shipyards in Wismar, Rostock and Stralsund at a combined cost of €230.6m. Thereafter, MV WERTEN was established, and an extensive €160m investment programme has reinforced confidence in all three sites. Among other exciting plans, MV WERTEN proposes to launch the Global-Max cruiser, the world’s biggest cruise ship in terms of passenger capacity, measuring over 340m long and 45m wide. It is due to materialise by 2020. The Crystal Bach and Crystal Mahler are already under construction, and the Crystal Debussy and Crystal Ravel will be the third and fourth of these Rhine Class of cruise ships, all offering a true luxury experience on European rivers.
