Carnival Luminosa Review
Review of Carnival Luminosa
Under the "COSTA by CARNIVAL" brand, the vessel (IMO number 9398905) is currently Bahamas-flagged (MMSI 311001201) and registered in Nassau. Before the transfer to CCL, Luminosa was briefly Portugal/Madeira-flagged (MMSI 255804260) and registered in Funchal. Initially, Costa Luminosa was Italy-flagged (MMSI 247257900) and registered in Genoa.
On June 15, 2022, CCL-Carnival Cruise Line announced that Costa Luminosa will be transferred from Costa to CCL in September and renamed "Carnival Luminosa". Luminosa's acquisition followed the shipowner Carnival Corporation's decision for Costa to keep Costa Magica in the fleet.
Since November 2022, Carnival Luminosa operates Australia and New Zealand roundtrips from Brisbane (Queensland Australia).
When the announcement for Luminosa's acquisition by Carnival was made (June 15, 2022), the ship's schedule listed a total of 173x future voyages (itineraries with departures between June 19, 2022, and April 16, 2024). Following the announcement, all voyages between/including Sept 4, 2022, and April 14, 2024 (151x total) were canceled. Luminosa's last cruise for Costa was on Aug 28, 2022 (7-day roundtrip from Trieste Italy). Luminosa's last drydock refurbishment by Costa was in 2017.
Note: On June 23, 2021, CCL announced plans to add two additional ships to its fleet by 2023. The vessels included an EXCEL-class newbuild 2023 (Carnival Jubilee/originally was assigned to AIDA) and Costa Magica.
History - construction and ownership
Carnival Cruise Lines (CCL) is a US shipping company, trademarked brand and subsidiary of Carnival Corporation (shipowner).

The 2800-passenger ship Costa Luminosa is a vessel served by professional staff and crew, but also by Peper robots - the latest cyborg technology implemented fleetwide in 2016. These humanoid robots greet and guide passengers upon embarkation. They also assist them throughout the cruise by providing information and tips on onboard dining, entertainment, enrichment program (workshops, pre-scheduled events), casino and shopping promotions, shore excursions and tours. Pepper robots are mobile and communicate in 3 languages (English, German, Italian). They can also interpret human emotions by analyzing voice tones and facial expressions.

Carnival Luminosa Wiki
Luminosa is Costa's 1st of two Luminosa-Class liners (inaugural cruise on June 3, 2009), with sistership Costa Deliziosa. Both are hybrid Vista-Spirit class designed and Panamax vessels, which allows them to transit through Panama Canal's old locks. Luminosa was christened (together with Costa Pacifica) on June 5, 2009, in Port Genoa. This was the industry's first dual-christening ceremony and also a Guinness World Record. Another fun fact is that both liners were launched in their respective shipyards on the same day - Luminosa in Venice (Marghera yards) and Pacifica in Genoa (Sestri Ponente yards).
For summer 2016 season, Costa Cruises introduced new shore tours to Moscow (Russia). The unique shore excursion was part of Costa Luminosa's 2016 Baltic cruise itinerary program in Northern Europe. The new tour to Moscow is during ship's overnight port stay in Sankt Petersburg and deals prices are inclusive of 8 hours high-speed train travel on the Sapsan railway.
On September 8, 2022, in Port Palermo (Sicily Italy), Luminosa was officially handed over from Costa Cruises to CCL-Carnival Cruise Lines. During the special ceremony, Costa's Captain Nicolantonio Palombella handed over the vessel to Carnival's Captain Adriano Binacchi.
Following the drydocking in Italy, the repainted boat (featuring CCL'ss new livery and funnels) left Palermo on Sept 26th, en route to Dubai UAE (for crewing) and then relocated to Australia (Brisbane QLD). The vessel was also re-flagged/changed registry from Malta to Bahamas.
Costa Luminosa ship review
Costa Luminosa features four restaurants. Its MDR, Taurus, is a beautiful 2-deck aft venue with gorgeous views. One of its best features is the way it is designed into smaller areas, each with a different ambiance. The buffet restaurant, called Ristorante Buffet Andromeda, is open for breakfast, lunch, and tea (late-afternoon snack). Andromeda operates in a lunch counter fashion, where passengers line up to plod through the variety of offerings, which is quite uncomfortable. The quality of the food is the usual steam-table fare, though some exceptions include the omelet station at breakfast, the pasta station at lunch, and the hot and crispy pizza slices available from lunchtime through the evening. Costa Luminosa also offers complimentary 24-Hour Room-Service.
Follows the complete list of Costa Luminosa restaurants and food bars.
- Ristorante Samsara (serves healthy and low-calorie food; with a complimentary dining room for guests in Samsara Spa cabins, and a specialty restaurant for other passengers at a surcharge/reservations are required)

Introduced in 2021, "Destination Dishes" are complimentary and available at the MDR's/main dining rooms fleetwide.
