Louis Hellenic Cruises wishes to inform that in further implementing its policy for the renewal of its fleet has today entered into an agreement for the sale of MV Aegean Pearl.
MV Aegean Pearl will be delivered to her new owners on June 23rd 2010 and her planned itineraries for the 2010 season will be taken over and operated by MV Calypso.
Named after the sea goddess and daughter of Atlas Titan in Greek mythology, MV Calypso was rebuilt in 1999 and is a slick cruise ship of particular design with a cozy and warm atmosphere, a wide selection of public areas and spacious accommodation. On her 8 decks, MV Calypso can accommodate 740 passengers in 243 cabins and suites, 158 of which are outside staterooms. She also features a swimming pool, 5 bars, a disco, library, a fitness center with sauna and massage facilities, duty free & cruise value shops and a beautifully decorated restaurant fitting for its name: "L’ Orchidee". MV Calypso will be welcoming her passengers with Greek Officers, the Greek flag flying proudly on her mast and therefore she will be welcoming and sailing them to her home waters!
The usual warm hospitality and excellent service that characterizes Louis Hellenic Cruises in conjunction with the unique itineraries that it offers and the deployment of an upgraded cruise ship form the best possible basis for truly memorable cruises to the Greek islands and Turkey.
