Pleasant Cruise on the Costa Luminosa
Destination: Baltic Sea
We recently enjoyed 7 sunny days on the Costa Luminosa visiting some lovely ports in the Baltic. The itinerary was excellent. The ship is clean and well maintained, the décor is modern. However, there is a significant area dedicated to beauty/spa services. It is difficult to obtain information re the prices for the services in the Samsara area, unless you personally go there, where they try and do the hard sell on you.
We had a balcony cabin, which was very comfortable and spacious. Our cabin was clean and our cabin attendant was excellent.
The food on the cruise was varied and plentiful and the evening meal is 5 courses long. Breakfast and lunch are buffet, so it is hard to imagine why some other reviewers would complain that food isn't available 24/7. Really! Surely this amount of food is enough. Our waiters were very efficient and lovely, although they were very busy all evening.
We went on 2 excursions in Stockholm and in St Petersburg and our More guides were brilliant, they were knowledgeable, friendly, witty and worked extremely hard throughout the entire excursions.
On the negative side the ship's newsletter is poor and there was little information about the gala nights, we almost missed the 2nd night as it was barely mentioned. Less
