Orient Queen / Louis Aura
This ship began life in 1968 as the M/V Starward for Norwegian Cruise Lines until 1995. It became the M/V Bolero until 2004. A full refit and it became Orient Queen until being renamed Louis Aura in September 2013. Most of its life it was registered in Panama until the 2013 renaming when its registry was transferred to Valletta, Malta. It is owned by Abou Merhi Cruises d/b/a Louis Cruises (once called Louis Hellenic Cruises). Louis is an old company dating back to 1935. Louis now specializes in buying second-hand ships.
Before I begin my criticisms, let me say that I am not a newcomer to traveling or cruising. I have traveled in 47 countries and have been on 19 cruises with 6 different cruise lines. I know what a well-run cruise ship should be like.
