Louis Cruises made the news in 2007 when their ship, Sea Diamond ran aground and sank off the coast of Santorini, Greece. They made news again in 2009 when the vessel Louis Majesty was hit by a 30-foot rogue wave.
Currently, Celestyal Cruises operates two older ships, Celestyal Crystal (1980) and Celestyal Olympia (1982) that cruise in the Eastern Mediterranean.
