Costa luminosa exceeded our expectations. They upgraded us to samsara balcony.
We purchased a guarantee balcony on vacationstogo for 999. Per person. The Cabin and steward were wonderful. Cabin was cleaned and restocked 2x daily.
The ship was sparkling clean and well maintained. The European culture and food Really added to the whole experience and we embraced it. The staff were friendly
And we did not experience rude passengers nor rude staff, in fact quite the opposite.
We utilized customer service for several inquiries and received excellent service. We Purchased the drink pkg. Tell the waiter you want to see ALL wine choices for the pkg And you will have the option of 3 reds 3 whites rather than what they automatically Bring to the table. Although all of the wine offered was lovely. We enjoyed the food Which included a great variety of seafood every evening. The daily tea time at 4:00 was nice.
We brought our own kettle and tea pot for More
the room for our morning balcony tea time. We gathered an assortment of the fantastic pastries each morning and had tea on our Balcony.
The steward brought pool towels to our room every evening for the next days use on ship or land.
We enjoyed the ports but wished the time were longer on some of them. We brought Our own snorkel gear as every port was offered a beach nearby.
Loved it! Sparkling clean 2x daily. Plenty of storage. Comfy sofa and bed. Two nice patio chairs and table on the balcony. They clean the balcony/glass every other day. Refresh linens every 3 days. Linens were 100% certified organic cotton as were the towels. Nice touch. TV options limited but we don't watch tv much. Great hot showers!!! Good hair dryer, I used it every day. Brought our own test kettle and pot for morning use on the balcony. Very comfortable room.
