This was our first cruise. Now that I have been on two others since, I feel that now is the time to post a review. I decided on this cruise due to price. I had never been on a cruise before and my husband suggested that while we were on our Miami vacation, look for a quick cruise so we could see if we like it. He sure wasn't expecting for me to book a 10 night! I did not know what I was booking, ...

Costa Luminosa: 24.02.2015 Miami, Cozumel, Roatan, Jamaica, Caymans, Grand Turk, Nassau, Miami. The cruise was value for money and to be honest the ship was in really good shape and on a par with any other "mid range" ships we have been on. Balcony Cabin: as big if not bigger than anything else we have been on inc P&O, Celeb, Princess, Norwegian and RC. Tiny TV however with very limited channels ...

We do a lot of cruising. We cruised 7 times this past year and usually love it. We are not picky. We usually eat in the buffets on board, so you know that we can't be that picky. We have cruised many times on Royal Caribbean (not as good as it was several years ago), Norwegian and Carnival. The ship was 90% international travelers, which did not bother us. Matter of fact we became good friends ...

First, let me say that it has been a month since we returned from this cruise. Having sailed with three other cruise lines I found Costa to embarkation staff to be somewhat disorganized as it comes to a person with disabilities. It took some time for them to locate a large wheelchair both on embarkation and disembarking. Disembarking was a disaster and I finally had to use a walker because they ...

I had read the bad reviews here before going, but we still took this ship ONLY because of the combination of ports it was visiting. I found the bad reviews were completely true. We took the Costa Luminosa as the second of three cruises we did (one right after the other). The first was the Carnival Valor, which is the Luminosa's sister ship (Both cruise lines are owned by Carnival Corporation). Our ...

Our recent cruise on Costa Cruise line’s 11 day Caribbean Cruise was not a positive experience. While we found the efforts of the wait staff and cabin stewards to be very positive, our interactions with those above that level was found to be more than dissatisfying. We had 2 of our 4 excursions cancelled due to “lack of enough sign ups”, yet discovered the other guests had taken the same ...

Consider ourselves seasoned cruisers (25years) for some time. Costa Cruise Lines was by far the worst ever experience we have ever had. The food was horrible, if you missed your scheduled dinning room seating...you had to pay 8.00 for the buffet pizza which had no cheese nor topping on it. They shut down the juice and water machines after breakfast and lunch forcing you to buy drinks or water. ...

Before our cruise I had read a lot of negative feedback about Costa Luminosa. Well, I don't know why did they get that all because I think they really didn't deserve it. On the contrary: all the staff was nice and polite, smiling, helpful. Maybe some of them were a bit shy or not so multilingual but that's exactly the same with all cruises with the crew collected allover the world. We had some ...

I have been on several cruises on many other cruise lines so I thought I knew what to expect. This trip was very different. Boarding began at 3 pm and the ship was to depart at 11 pm. (The ship didn't leave until 3 am as they held it for some passengers who had not arrived on time). I had already been warned that at 3 pm, it would be a mob scene so we stalled boarding until after 7 pm. Unloaded ...

We thought we were on a Timeshare cruise... 5 of us went , 2 suites 1 balcony cabins... 1st thing we found was no water was supplied at sitdown meals including the specialty dining room Club Costa..
