Hm... by Sailbright

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Costa Luminosa

The cruise overall was a nice cruise. Once I stepped inside, I had a feeling that the ship was old. They tried their best to keep guests entertained. The crew is respectful and maybe a four on friendliness. The main complaint I heard amongst guests was the lack of service when lounging or in the buffet. They were quick to clean up your plates but never offered to grab you something to drink or refill your cup.

Truly Italian Cruise Ship by pamjim29662

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Costa Luminosa / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

I had expected that the ship might be "worn" but it was beautiful and clean. Mostly Asian service staff with most speaking English. I like the size of the ship, not too large or too small.

Anniversary cruise by alizabethramos

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Costa Luminosa / Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean

The cruise was wonderful.  Not too long (7days) and not too short (4days).  The 5 day cruise introduced us to Marseilles, Savrona, & Rome.  Plus a day at sea.  We love cruises with a day at sea to sleep in, go to the gym, participate in a couple of dance lessons (fox trot, salsa) and just enjoying the day.

The food was very good.  Dinners in the dining room was wonderful; the buffet was also very good.  Didn't enjoy breakfast in the dining room; only the buffet. 

The entertainment was not as good as we thought it would be for us.  We don't gamble and the 4D theatre showed only 3-4 movies that did not appeal to us.  But some of the night time entertainment at the main bar was very funny. 

Overall, a wonderful way to celebrate our wedding anniversary.

Great Value for the money. Not many children as much as I love kids I was glad they were not under foot! Food and Drink were great! Changed our dinner seating as we met many nice people and dined with new friends!

Excellent ship and staff by prata

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Costa Luminosa / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Cruising Costa is a delight. If you want an European experience, this is your cruise. Their “taste not waste” program is rewarding. There’s no 24 hour unlimited food, hairy chest contests or massive tropical drinks. But the food is exceptional and everything is very well presented. And customer service is the best I have experienced. I’m very disappointed that Costa will no longer embark from Florida. This was my 7th ( out of 34) cruises with Costa and I was looking forward to cruising the Caribbean with them again.

Excellent Cruise - Great Value by rpertus

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Costa Luminosa / Destination: Caribbean - Western

This cruise was amazing. We enjoyed the Italianate design of the ship and the diversity of the passengers. The food was excellent and the crew was professional and friendly. We would definitely sail on Costa in the future.

Don't do it!!! by knoxes2020

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Costa Luminosa / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

There is only one staff member who was exceptional and worthy of mentioning and that was Juan Zapata (bar tender) He always provided service with a smile and had a pep in his step. All other staff were rude and unhappy. They need to have food open at all times or atleast until midnight! They need to work on some new mixed drinks and better beer for their packages.

New Years Italian Cruise by mrentz91

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Costa Luminosa / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

Thoroughly enjoyed the cruise and the food. We have cruised Costa before so understood that there would be differences. Many of the things they do is frustrating (no bar service, for example, taking orders from around the pool, bars at the pool not offering full service bars, etc) but we didn't let it ruin our experience. One of the best cruises we've ever taken.

A welcomed surprise by StephBG

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Costa Luminosa

We were unfamiliar with Costa but the price was affordable so we gave it a try. We will certainly go with them again. Don’t let other reviews discourage you. Be prepare for a strong Italian influence, some may not like but we enjoyed completely

Christmas Cruise by Catsam215

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Costa Luminosa

It was a great cruise. Nice activities for Christmas. A few cons: Buffet only has orange juice in the morning. Other cruise lines offer applies juice, cranberry juice. And lunch buffet only water. Many water stations were always out of ice. And many coffee stations closed. Pool towels are old and worn out. No turn down service at night. Only changed towels 1 a day. Ring promotion-2 for 40.00. They said you have to purchase 2, not 1 at a higher price. Crazy in my opinion..Also Cruise club accessories other cruise lines are $10.00 on. Costa 12.08??? Pros: Very Italian food. A plus for us. Loved specialty coffee’s

The price basically matches the value. If you like the Italian food, this is the ship to go.
