This was our 9th cruise with Costa, this time on Luminosa.
For us, the experience is very youthful in approach, which we do like even though we are in our 50s/60s.
Our outside cabin was kept in very good order. I've noticed about other comments regarding only 1 service per day, but this is enough. Once a day is sufficient especially if that once is done properly.
The food is regular at breakfast and does vary at lunch. Evening dinner does have great variety, especially if you like seafood dishes. There are plenty of bars, and I noticed the more courteous that guests were they probably got a better service on return. We always say please and thank you, and we know the staff appreciate that. It costs nothing in any language!
The itinerary gave us many new ports and we took an excursion in Athens and katakolon. As newly promoted pearl members of Costa club, we saw the extra benefits as worthwhile keeping for the future. €20 spend, samsara restaurant for 1 night gratis and the prosecco and a gift included in the room.
5 times on Favolosa, 1 time now each on Diadema, Serena, Pacifica and now Luminosa.
Roll on Fortuna in March.
