Great Cruise!

Sail Date: September 03, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

Cruise was great, the itinerary was fantastic, the staff was friendly and helpful, especially our cabin person and waiter. The customer Svs desk were not very friendly, could have been English wasn't their first or even second language, but they came across short and curt. The food was good, cooking for 3000 isn't easy but there was a good variety and plenty.

Pros: The itinerary!

Cons: To many smoking areas!

Recommends Costa Luminosa? Yes!

Ship Quality
Except for having to many public smoking areas making it difficult for non-smokers to get to all locations, the ship was clean, beautiful and very roomy.
Food and Dining
Food was good - cooking for the masses makes it understandable that it wouldn't be great, but the service and quanity made up for any shortcomings
Cabin / Stateroom
Stateroom was great, roomy, clean and comfortable.
Service and Staff
Almost everyone went above and beyond - the customer service desk answers were brisk and curt, and not always correct...
Great variety, enjoyed the shows every night
Tallinn, Estonia
A must see location, the tour guide was fantastic
Helsinki, Finland
Great visit, also went to Porvoo which showed more of the historyu
Stockholm, Sweden
Great also - the Glacial ice bar was unique but the city centre was the place to see!
St. Petersburg, Russian Federation
It was a long day but well worth it!
Don't Miss: The Summer Palace!!!
