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 hotel that happens to hop from island to island
First off, for a 45-year old ship I found it to be in remarkably good condition. Everything was clean and well maintained. The public rooms don't have much in the way of Wow and Bling, but they look modern enough and there is some very nice original Mediterranean art on display. A previous reviewer must have looked long and hard to find that ripped lounge chair because I certainly never saw one. I especially liked the lounge on the top deck of the ship which is partially open-air. It is a great place to enjoy the view and the sea breeze.
