MV Coral (formerly Triton, Sunward II, Cunard Adventurer) was a cruise ship in service for Louis Cruises until 2011. She was a Cunard Line cruise ship that operated from 1971 to 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 ex-Cunard ship still in service from this era is the MS Golden Iris (formerly Cunard Princess).
As Coral she sailed in the Mediterranean and Greek islands until 2011.
Louis announced in May 2013 that for the 2014 season, Coral was to be renamed Louis Rhea, to reflect the company's Hellenic heritage. However in December the plans were cancelled and she was reported to have been sold to a scrap firm in Aliaga, Turkey and subsequently to Alang, India. She arrived in Alang for breaking on January 30, 2014.
