Louis Cruise are a Greek line who operate mainly the Greek Islands. They also 'rent out boats' namely Destiny & Calypso to Thomson. Their safety record over the past few years is not the best with the total loss of Sea Diamond off Santorini (with fatalities) & a crunch with the pier at Heraklion a year later. The word bargepole comes to mind at the very thought.......Wilba.

Thank you Wilba for that information. Marco Polo also had some safety issues which no one on the Caribbean Cruise has mentioned in their reviews. When the lifeboats were needed as tenders, one had many problems being lowered into the sea. We also saw fuel being called for and on the occasion we were about to board one, there was a delay as it was taking in water. We also heard one broke down on route. Whether these were separate incidents or all the same lifeboat I could not say. Except the one they were unable to lower into the sea, number nine, .was our lifeboat if there had been an emergency !

Marco Polo under Transocean Tours has no connection with Louis Cruise Lines.

Viking Ocean Cruises Would you?

By Tom Harding

Tom Harding's blog

Viking have really hit the Cruising Scene hard, they are immensely popular on the Rivers of the World with countless ships cruising the Waterways of Europe, Asia, Russia and the Far East.

Earning cash at sea by taking a selfie.

By Steve Fuller

Steve Fuller's blog

Selfies have become very popular and with social media like Face book and Instagram you can’t look though any news feed without seeing a selfie from someone.I often joke to my girlfriend, who happens to like a selfie. Well, she tells me that she takes load but only the odd couple are chosen to be posted. Yeah right I think! Anyway, joking with her I once said you should get a job involving selfies you’d be good at it. Low and behold would you believe it? One has only gone and beco...
