FESTIVAL CRUISES

        Festival Cruises was a Hellenic cruise line founded in 1993, and it was started to operate in 1994. In the early ages, the fleet consisted of three ships bought from other cruise lines. Starting from 1999, three new ships were built for Festival Cruises. They are collectively known as Mistral Class, derived from the name of the first ship in the class. They later formed the basis of the modern fleet of another cruise line, MSC Cruises. In early 2004, Festival Cruises went into bankruptcy.
