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.
