Ship Facts: Louis Aura Review (by Cruise Critic!)
Louis Olympia 4 Day Cruise

Took a 4 night cruise in April from Athens that stopped at the following locations:  Mykanos - Kusadasi Turkey - Patmos - Rhodes - Crete (Heraklion) - Santorini

The ship is a bit old and shabby and not as good as some of the bigger cruise lines. Rooms are very small, but the maids were friendly and did a good job.

The food was low quality compared to other cruise lines but the service was mostly good with the exception of a few grumpy employees.

The best food was the pasta bar at the buffet lunch.

Dinner does not have assigned seating so either you need to eat at the buffet or sometimes wait for the main restaurant which can be busy popular nights.

The All inclusive drinks package works out to be good value.

You can't get food at anytime unless you pay for it, other cruises have options for grabbing a pizza or burger anytime.

The itinerary is packed with only a few hours at some ports after you disembark by tender. Tours get priority to disembark at ports. They should skip Crete and do a whole day at Santorini instead.

We didn't do the tours offered by the cruise, instead we opted to wing it. Most ports had taxi drivers offering personal tours for better value. 50 Euro's at Kusadasi for a tour for 3 people to Ephesus + 30 Euro's entry instead of 165 euro's for 3 through the cruise line.

Entertainment is really bad compared to other cruise lines, the only good thing was the classical concert.
