Ship Facts: Costa Luminosa Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Costa Luminosa Deck Plans
Truly a Ship of Light and More
It was a great experience sailing on Luminosa especially as it was a relatively new ship at the time of our cruise from May 4 to 13, 2010.

Features-spacious, full of interesting and attractive decor, awesome Buddha in the central plaza, I love it! I also enjoyed the top quality service. We didn't hesitate to give our steward 30 Euros for his patience, efficiency and friendly manner! This despite the fact we prepaid our tips when we booked. We also gave out Aussie souvenirs which were gratefully appreciated by the staff from the stewards to the restaurant Maitre D' and other crewship workers.

Food was also appetising most of the time except when there are long lines and crowds during peak hours in the buffet. The formal dining rooms are a great alternative so we enjoyed their use the whole time we were there. We hardly ate anything while taking the bus tours to various ports, etc..We knew there were nice food waiting for us at the ship anyway!

NEgatives- the smoking ban in the lounges are not properly ensured. Many Italians especially act as if they own the ship and so usually bring the ash trays to any table they like! It was a horrible sight, the smoke billowing from the lounges even if we were just passing through to get to the show lounge/theatre or other decks. It was awful! Also the lack of space during shows. The first seating and second seating arrangement did not seem to work here as both groups seem to be present at the shows! There was always a lack of seating so I ended up always going back to the cabin, I refused to stay standing up watching a mediocre show anyway! So entertainment was really nothing much to rave about.
