If you've taken a few cruises before, you may be accustomed to large, luxurious ships appointed with every possible amenity. Cruising the Mediterranean is different. Ships (including those of Louis Cruise Lines) are generally smaller and more agile, better suited for navigating the shallow waters and small ports of the Mediterranean and Aegean Seas. These mid-sized ships are practical, comfortable, and equipped with all necessary modern conveniences. But they may offer more basic cabin amenities, less on-board entertainment, and fewer dining options than larger ocean liners. Some meals may feature buffet style service and limited a la carte selections. Think of these ships as good 3-star hotels providing convenient and comfortable transport through the Greek Isles - which are the true reason for your cruise
