MV Coral (formerly Triton, Sunward II, Cunard Adventurer) is a cruise ship in service for Louis Cruises. She was a Cunard Line cruise ship that operated from 1971-1977. She was the first of the company’s vessels in the 20th century to bear a name that did not end in “ia” or begin with “Queen.” The only non-Cunard ship still in service is the Ocean Countess (formerly Cunard Countess).3
Louis Coral will perform an amended 8-day/-7night cruise program “Greece and Turkey” sailing from Lavrion (Athens/Attica) to Istanbul, Mykonos, Patmos, Kusadasi, Rhodes, Crete (Heraklion), Santorini throughout the season (except July and August 2013) as follows: From April 26, 2013 until June 28, 2013 (both dates included) and from September 6, 2013 until October 25, 2013 (both dates included).
Embarkation / disembarkation for the 7-night program will be offered from the ports of Lavrion (Athens/Attica) and Istanbul (Turkey). Embarkation from Istanbul will enhance airlift- and land arrangements for 2013. To facilitate these increased options our Reservation System will now include the following segments: Lavrion-Lavrion, Istanbul-Istanbul, Istanbul-Lavrion. Other possible combinations will be offered only upon availability.4
Louis announced in May 2013 that for the 2014 season, Coral will be renamed Louis Rhea, toreflect the company's Hellenic heritage.5
