Louis to bring third cruise ship to Greece

The Louis Group will add a third cruise liner to its fleet in Greece next year to cover the increasing demand by cruise passengers.

Introducing the corporate brand name Celestyal Cruises, which will gradually become the main activity of the Cypriot group in the cruise sector, Louis will introduce the Celestyal Odyssey cruise ship built in 2002 and which has 420 cabins, the group announced on Thursday in a presentation.

The company added that its contribution to the country’s economy amounts to 128 million euros per year thanks to its constant growth.

The Cypriot firm accounts for as much as 90 percent of homeporting in the country (cruise itineraries that start and end in Greece).
