We booked the cruise online, all our paperwork showed it left and returned to Limassol, two days into cruise we found out it finished at Marseilles and you were flown back to Larnaca. They have no such thing as a complaints form, or give you a register number for Complaints, I was assured they sent off my complaint to head office but I have received no acknowledgement . The discipline on board ...

BALTICS & ST.PETERSBURG CRUISE - 12 DAYS - JULY 2014 The worst and most expensive cruise that we ever made.The ship "Louis Aura" is very old (46 years) and ramshackle. At sea the ship produces lots of black smoke and soot vomits precipitates on railings and deck, if you don't watch it you're clothing under the black sweep. In the port and the Kieler-canal it produces white smoke , ra ra how can ...

Great experience on Louis Olympia for peanut-allergic passenger

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

My 15-year-old daughter and I recently returned from a trip to the Greek Islands that included a 3-night cruise aboard the Louis Olympia. We disembarked in Santorini on the fourth day, while most passengers continued back to Piraeus. We had a great time and found the staff very helpful and friendly. My daughter has a peanut allergy, which makes food a concern when travelling. Because of that, the ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

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 upgrade to L6. The fumes were throughout decks up to five to the rear of the ship and lasted for at least 2 days meaning those areas were out of bounds for us. The ...

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 ...

In mid-October, 2013, we took a 4-day cruise of the Greek Islands (Mykonos, Patmos, Rhodes, Crete, and Santorini) and Ephesus, Turkey on Louis Cruise Lines Olympia (formerly Orient Queen). We have cruised previously (a Russian ice-breaker in Antarctica, a medium-sized cruise ship in the Baltics, and large cruise ships in Alaska and the Caribbean) and have enjoyed all these experiences. We were ...

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, and we found out from other guests that the 'better cabins' had been discount marketed in the states. We booked online - what a mistake! When we requested some ...

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 facilities it more than makes up for in atmosphere and friendliness. To enjoy a cruise on this ship one must think of it as a small, comfortable but plain Greek ...

If you are not a first time cruiser, do not use Louis Lines!

My husband and I decided to visit the islands of Greece and chose Insight travel company for our tour. Unfortunately, we felt the experience was not up to standards of Insight. 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 ...
