As many of you know, we work with Louis Cruise Lines and take our travelers on its Louis Majesty to cruise the Mediterranean. It saddens me to report that on March 4, abnormally large waves hit the cruise ship, damaging it severely and taking the lives of two passengers. Our hearts go out to the families involved.
We love this ship, and it is unfortunate that this unexpected force of nature disrupted, what I’m sure was, a beautiful journey for the travelers on board. Thankfully, no Friendly Planet travelers were on the ship.
The Mediterranean offers some of the best cruising values in the world, and we’ll continue to work with Louis Cruises. Friendly Planet travelers who are booked on Louis Cruise Line ships for later this year will not be impacted by the incident. If anything does change, we will update you quickly here on the blog and on our Facebook page.
