The article reports on the Mediterranean cruises launched by Cyprus-based Louis Cruise Lines to the British market. The cruiseline is best known in Britain for its short cruises from Cyprus to Egypt, Israel, Syria and Rhodes, but in 2008 it is also promoting its itineraries in the rest of the Mediterranean. British Manager Peter Adamou said prices in the programme are cruise only, so agents can package them alongside low-cost or charter flights and maybe a land-based itinerary. Prices start at £154 per person for a three-day Greek Island cruise.
