Great Cruise for the value, ports of call, with the European experienc
Destination: Western Caribbean
I enjoy Costa because it is like being on a vacation within a vacation, being around other nationalities is fun for me. I speak and understand Spanish lightly, and can get by with a little bit of Italian. On board the ship, the staff and bartenders are on their own relaxed pace, which is a European thing. Americans want everything now and crave instant, undivided attention which is not going to happen, so be patient and all will be fine! The food is good, but don't expect American portions or More details. The food is good, and in small portions in the dining room because it is European to have more courses and less food. The buffets are geared towards the Mediterranean way of eating, which is fine, but a change if you aren't aware. The coffee is strong for me, but they do have American instant coffee available too! Keep in mind, the culture shock of different nationalities and you will enjoy your time.
Costa Luminosa was clean and we'll kept which made me proud when we were in port next to other ships that were older and weren't kept up as well. I felt safe and comfortable with the way the Costa crew ran everything from safety to excursions. Will definitely cruise again! Less
