The cruise ship yard

Do you know how to build a ship? You can see how to build the cruise ship inside the ship yard. There's only Germany guide but it's enough to see your self.

I am sorry to have to write this review as I am a long time member of RCI and have been cruising with them for the last 20 years. I took my first cruise when I was 12 and became hooked the minute I boarded an RCI ship. Across the years I have experienced all aspects of their fleet and... More

Meyer Werft have obviously spent a lot of money on their new visitor centre, but the impression is spoiled by having to sit through two very poorly made films. There is very little in the tour to show how a ship is designed and built, and too much emphasis on the luxurious living accommodation on board. For what is in... More

You must get over the fact the tour is in German only and make the best of it. 10:30am and 12:30pm on bus at stop on side of Rathaus. Get tickets ahead of time at Info Center on boat in front of Rathaus--tour lasts about 2 hours--easy to follow along if you cannot handle a little German. Ok to take... More

The guided tour takes you along the wharf. Not really much to see. Just some basic construction work. Might be a lot better when ships reach their final stage but at my visit there was hardly any visible activity.

After a visit to the Meyer Werft Shipyard all I can say is wow. The tour of the shipyard offered an insight into the building of a modern cruise ship. While there they were putting the finishing touches on the Quantun of the Seas, before heading to the ocean. If in the area the tour is a must.

Visited as an adult family of whom only one spoke German. On pre-booking over the telephone, and collecting tickets at the tourism office, no mention was made of the absence of English guidance on site, although the telephonist and tourism officer were otherwise helpful and spoke very good English. Upon arrival it became apparent that the guide was only going... More

We went to see the Quantum of the Seas leave the first dock. What an experience. The whole wharf is very modern and professional. The tour is nice and informative but we got a bit of an insight by an employee we knew. Anybody who likes boats and cruise ships, this is a must to see.

I visited the Meyer Werft in Papenburg with my young-adult son on a saturday in de early summer. The booking could be made in advance via Internet. The tour itself is a clockwork operation with near-military efficiency. A film about the history of the shipyard and why Germany's builder of ocean-going cruiseships is located 50 kilometres from the sea, informative... More
