Our very first cruise as passengers - and I was disappointed. I work in entertainment for living and have worked on board these vessels, so when we got home, I thought I'd share my opinion on the Entertainment on the Costa Luminosa.

Please forgive me if my review contains technical stuff and jargon that only entertainers might understand. I can't just say it was terrible, because it wasn't, but some of it was pretty poor. I think maybe I just expected better. I might have expected too much, but I don't think so.

Port Reviews

Athens (Piraeus)

Saw quite a lot but the sheer number of people there was a surprise. We ducked out and did some visiting on our own


Really enjoyed split - historic and the people were wonderful


Venice was very enjoyable

Katakolon (Olympia)

we didn't;t take the coach but found a wonderful narrow gauge train that took us to Olympia and back with better views and no other passengers - just at the end of the Main Street
