If you are not a first time cruiser, do not use Louis Lines!: Louis Aura Cruise Review by littlebeau

If you are not a first time cruiser, do not use Louis Lines!
Embarkation: Athens (Piraeus)
Insight Tours uses the Louis Cruise Lines to travel to the Greek Islands. We were on the Louis "Aura," formerly the "Orient Queen."
Food on board was sub-standard-bologna on a dinner buffet?? If you went on a tour that ended at 7:30, the dining room was closed at 8-so much for showering and changing. They seemed to rush you at dinner-if it was edible-cleaning tables before complete meal was finished!
I must say, the cabin steward was best part of ship! Upon meeting one of the officers on deck, she could not even acknowledge a hello.
We paid extra for a "premium:" cabin", was spacious but had a very obstructed view.
Smoking on board was another problem-smoking was allowed only on deck-very good-but on all sides.
Before going to a Greek Island Tour, do More research about the ship. The Aura was small, which was fine, but she needs a lot of work. Maybe Americans expect a little more than others. Less
Cabin spacious but with a very obstructed view.
