For the second time Bocatec boarded the cruise ship „Mein Schiff 2“ for the turn of the year 2014/2015. TUI Cruises engaged the event professionals from Hamburg for a bombastic surprise New Year’s Eve performance. The laser show already thrilled more than 2700 people on the open sea in 2012. The complete crew and the ship vibrated over its length of 260 meter when Bocatec switched on the laser projectors.
The 29th December „Mein Schiff 2“ cast off from the harbor in Dubai to start the cruise through the Emirates. Until the 5th of January the captain navigated the jumbo through the Mediterranean Sea. Abu Dhabi was just one of the many spectacular landing points of the New Year’s Cruise. For the night before the 1st of January 2015 TUI planned something special for the cruise guests. Therefor the Bocatec team mounted all the show equipment of 1200 kg the day before in a heat of 35 degree. The stuff had been shipped via air cargo and ship to the location. The team installed 13 RGB

New Year’s Show
Shortly before midnight everyone cooperated: 26 sea miles away from Dubai the captain went to tailwind course, so that the fog machine could support the laser beams. The crew counted down to zero and the

laser show of the year
To the delight of Bocatec the captain allowed film shots with a drone for the first time. A unique
