Louis Cruise Lines is a Cyprus-based company that owns a number of small ships, including some that are chartered to other lines. The company's ships and itineraries have a loyal European audience but are virtually unknown to travelers from other continents.

In 2015, two ships--the 1,664-passenger Louis Olimpia and the 1,200-passenger Louis Cristal--will sail under the company's new brand, Celestyal Cruises. Cruises will depart from Piraeus and Lavrion, Greece.

A third ship, Louis Aura, reportedly will continue to sail under the Louis Cruises flag. (The line's 2015 schedule wasn't available when we last updated this page in October, 2014.)
