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 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 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.
Cabin spacious but with a very obstructed view.
