Louis Cruises to add new Ionian, Adriatic and Dalmatian Coast destinations for 2015

PIRAEUS, Greece — Louis Cruises is adding 12 new Ionian, Adriatic and Dalmatian Coast ports of call to its 2015 itineraries.

This follows the addition, in 2014, of nine new Aegean destinations: Chios, Ios, Kos, Milos, Samos, Symi, Syros and the Turkish Riviera ports of Bodrum and Cesme, to which Louis Cruises will return in 2015 (with the exception of Bodrum).

Louis Cruises is committed to adding new, unique destinations to its ports of call every year, and the 2015 itineraries were developed after extensive market research.

The Louis Cristal will be deployed on new seven-day cruises beginning in October of 2015:

• ‘Peloponnese and Ionian Sea’ departs from Lavrion (Athens) on Friday, Oct. 9, calling at Nafplio, Monemvasia, Kalamata, Katakolo and Igoumenitsa, Greece and at Agioi Saranta, Albania and Bari, Italy.

• ‘Idyllic Ionian Sea and Adriatic’ sails from Bari, Italy on Friday, Oct. 16, with stops at Dubrovnik, Croatia, Kotor, Montenegro, Agioi Saranta, Albania and Patras, Cephalonia and Corfu, Greece, before returning to Bari.

The Louis Cristal will also be deployed from Lavrion on the classic seven-day ‘Iconic Aegean’ cruise every Friday in May, June and September, and on Oct. 2. This immensely popular cruise calls at the Turkish ports of Istanbul and Kusadasi (ancient Ephesus) and at classic and up-and-coming Aegean jewels Santorini, Crete, Rhodes, Symi, Chios and Mykonos.
