Well where do I start, firstly upon the room allocation on the 3rd level there was a strong smell of diesel oil throughout the air conditioning which made my wife sick. After complaining about this with a poor response paid 120e to ... Read more

I can't believe I was on the same ship as some of the people who have posted reviews below. The Louis Aura is not the ship for you if you want a large, modern, facility-filled ship. Its a small, old, ship, but what it lacks in pizazz and ... Read more

Our superior cabin turned out to be an inferior porthole and bunk job with towels you could shoot peas through and shagged out linen. It was as clean as the very nice cabin attendants could make it. The whole ship was a backpackers ship, ... Read more

The swimming pool was small and not very inviting, but the deck area was nice to sit in, have a drink, read a book and enjoy the sun and breeze. The shows were very entertaining, especially the Broadway musical show. The food and service ... Read more

Most of Louis Cruises ships sail out of Marseille. For us this was a bonus because to fly into Marseille was a simple and straightforward option. We were flying from Faro in the Algarve and their options on destinations is fairly limited. ... Read more

Ours was a Fly UK to Marseille option. You may also go via rail/French TGV to the port. Those using the second option had a more enjoyable journey. I should say at the outset that cruising is never cheap and usually the more you pay, the ... Read more
