Here is their latest press statement: PRESS STATEMENT – Louis Hellenic Cruises The Louis group has been providing tourist services for 72 years. The cruise, hotels and tourist services are provided by distinct companies with separate management. It is a reputable group which prides itself on its safety record over this period. The group wishes to emphasise its commitment to employing the highest calibre management and staff, providing safe equipment, training and complying with industry standards and legislation. Louis Hellenic’s priorities over the last 6 days have been to ensure the safe evacuation and repatriation of the passengers on board the SEA DIAMOND on 5th April 2007 and safety of the crew. There have been a multitude of practicalities to deal with to ensure the efficient and comfortable return of the passengers to their homes. Payments to passengers and crew for lost luggage and other incidental expenses has also had to be organised.
