Louis Aura Cruise Review by jadgroot

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jul 2014
  • Destination: the Baltic Sea


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 this??

The cabins are small with tiny Windows or portholes and are in deplorable state, shower and sink give a thin trickle of water and the drain is nasty. Everything rattles while cruising and also the cleaning of the hut let quite a lot to be desired.

All deck chairs are worn out as well as the tables.

The Horizon buffet food was decent, but the restaurant was very noisy and the meals here were of mediocre quality with tough meat and lukewarm instead of hot dishes.

We paid no less than € 4390 (double outside cabin with 1 single bed and a small bed 70x190cm.) for this cruise.

We found this was much and way too expensive for money paid.The stay at the ports was very short, Copenhagen 5 hours, Helsinki 4 hours, Gdansk 5hrs, Travemunde 8hours.Only 2 days were set aside for St. Petersburg.

In short for approx. € 400 per night, we feel that we are heavily hustled.
