Louis is well known for maintaining the highest standards of service and quality and continuously upgrading and improving their ships, some of which have been used for NATO conferences and International Exhibitions.

Louis Cruise Lines recently purchased the Birka Princess and renamed her the Sea Diamond. Originally built in Finland in 1986, the Sea Diamond underwent a $26 million refurbishment in 1999 and all cabins have tastefully furnished interiors with ample closet space and en-suite facilities.

The Sea Diamond features three restaurants, several bars, a show lounge, a nightclub, gift shops and boutiques, a specially designed children's area, and an indoor swimming pool and spa center.

For those that prefer quiet elegance, the lounge will soothe with soft music and cocktails. For something more lively, take a peek into the disco with its flashing lights and loud rhythms. The creative crew onboard Louis Cruise Lines puts together fashion shows, bazaars, happy hours, and other specialized activities for guest entertainment.
