Mein Schiff 6 is similar to Mein Schiff 3, Mein Schiff 4, and Mein Schiff 5 with only minor differences to its sister vessels.

COVID-19 incident[edit]

On 28 September 2020, it was initially reported that 12 crew members of Mein Schiff 6 tested positive for COVID-19[2]as part of a routine sampling test. The ship was on the route Heraklion (Crete) - Piraeus - Corfu, and continued towards Piraeus for further investigation of the incident. The following morning it was reported that all 12 previously positive crew had now tested negative[3] fuelling uncertainty as to the result of the original tests, while as 2 October, the ship has been given the all clear to continue its journey to Corfu, showing that the incident was almost certainly a false alarm.[4]
