Strange way to look at that cruise....
It wasnt made mainly to create royal marriages (by the way, it was one of the first, if not THE first, meetings between Juan Carlos de Borbon and Sophia of Greece - and they didnt divorce...), but to promote the greek tourist industry and by that the economy of the country! Obviously Queen Frederica succeeded (it is said it was her idea) as the cruise got a lot of attention at the time.

The Agamenom was a success, it was the most profitable cruise in the history of Greece.

The Agamemnon cruise was not intended to marry members of Royal houses. Every summer in Greece, whether in Athens or Corfu, princes and princesses spent their summer with the greek royal family, Prince and Princess with ages to marry, from the royal houses of Sweden, Holland, Princesses Irene and Beatrix, Norway , Prince Harald of Norway, Prince Charles and Princess Anne of England, Prince Juan Carlos and his sisters and brother, members of German royalty, Prince Albert of Belgium, Italy and many more. .....There were more royals in these summer meetings than in the Agamenom. It is obvious that this was not a "love cruise".

The Agamenom was part of a project of the Greek State to attract tourists to Greece, before 1954, the tourism was not relevant in Greece, it reported very few benefits to the State, Greece did not have infrastructure like Italy for example, which then monopolized the tourism. That is the motive because the Agamenom cruise ship was planned. This consisted of creating a tourist route through the Greek islands, prepared for this purpose to receive these tourists. The project was funded by several families of shipowners, who paid this project.

The publicity was essential for the success of this project. it was necessary to give the event an international relevance, and it was through the Queen Frederika, she invited to members of the European royalty to the cruise, it achieved the objective that was the impact on the international media of the event. The press collected each visit to the different islands, the activities ...

After the Agamemnon the development of tourism began in Greece, and the cruises were the base to attract tourists. In the late 50s, this was a success, important hotels, restaurants, bars began to be built ...

The Agamemnon reported great benefits to the Greek state and to the shipowners that financed it, some of these shipowners, went from being modest their shipping companies, to having large cruises that made them great shipowners and businessmen.

Tourism is essential in Greek domestic economies, today cruises are still the basis of that economy, it gives a lot of work, income to public coffers ....

Everything had a beginning, and that beginning was the Agamemnom. Before that, tourism was very modest in Greece, and only people with a high social level, visited our islands, which did not even have the infrastructure, but after this trip to the Agamemnom, tourists who arrived in Greece were mainly middle-class Americans, who left a lot of money in Greece.

It was not a love cruise.

King Harald of Norway, imitated the travels of Agamemnom in 1997, when he invited to European royal houses to a cruise by the tourist areas of Norway.

They copied the agamemnon.

It's easier to say who wasn't there.
The cruise was a part of the joint 60th celebrations of King Harald and Queen Sonja.

Oops my mistake, I got the Norwegian cruises mixed up.
The one I was thinking about that resembled the Agamenon is the Silver wedding anniversary cruise in 1993.
