Louis: Extension of charter parties for “Thomson Majesty” and “Thomson Spirit”


Louis plc announces the extension of the charter of its two cruise vessels “Thomson Majesty” and “Thomson Spirit” to Thomson Cruises, part of TUI Travel plc, until November 2017.

This deal is a further confirmation of the trust that the biggest and most reputable international leisure travel companies like TUI Travel plc place in Louis plc.
