The Louis Majesty has been re-delivered to Louis Cruises at the end of her charter to Norwegian Cruise Lines. The cruise ship was chartered to NCL and, as Norwegian Majesty, was operating cruises from the U.S. until the end of October. The Louis Majesty is now on her way to Europe and will undergo routine maintenance and refurbishments where she shall be fitted with the Louis colors. All the attractive features, which made the ship a favorite in the Caribbean and Bermuda will not only be retained, but will be further enhanced, Louis said in a statement.
Louis acquired the ship from Star Cruises in July 2008 as part of its policy of fleet renewal and to upgrade of the product and services it provides.
On Dec. 4, 2009, the Majesty will sail her maiden voyage with the Louis colours and will be operating itineraries from Genoa and Marseille to destinations in the Mediterranean, the Canary Islands and North Africa.
