Carnival Luminosa Review

Review of Carnival Luminosa

The 2009-built (as Costa Luminosa) Carnival Luminosa cruise ship is Costa's first of two LUMINOSA-class liners, followed by the sistership Costa Deliziosa (2010).

The vessel (IMO number 9398905) is currently Bahamas-flagged (MMSI tba) and registered in Nassau. 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.

Starting in November 2022, Carnival Luminosa will operate 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). CCL was founded in 1972 as an independent company by Ted Arison (1924-1999, co-founder of NCL Norwegian). Carnival Cruise Lines has Corporation's largest fleet as both a number of vessels and GT tonnage (ship sizes and capacities). CCL has over 1/5 of the cruise industry's worldwide market.

Carnival Luminosa cruise ship (Costa Luminosa)

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.

Decks and Cabins

Costa/Carnival Luminosa staterooms (1130 total, in 14 grades) include 90x Suites, 662x Balconies, 178x Oceanviews, 180x Inside cabins. Most staterooms are sized 185 ft2 / 17 m2 (68% of all) and have a private step-out balcony. Wheelchair-accessible cabins are 23. The largest accommodations are the Grand Suites (455 ft2 / 43 m2, with terrace sized 105 ft2 / 9 m2).

There are also 56x Spa Staterooms (including 4x Spa Suites, 38x Spa Balcony, 14x Spa Inside). Panorama Suites are with scenic (forward and aft) deck locations, sized 370 ft2 / 35 m2, wraparound balconies, large bathrooms (with two sinks and bathtub), VIP amenities (priority embarkation, concierge service, other perks).

The boat has 12 passenger decks, of which 6 are with cabins.

Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks

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.

Shipboard entertainment options - Fun and Sport

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 St Petersburg and deals prices are inclusive of 8 hours high-speed train travel on the Sapsan railway.

Costa Luminosa's last Master was Captain Pietro Sinisi - with Costa Cruises since 1995, Captain since 2008.

From the Spirit-Class series are Cunard's liner Queen Victoria, P&O UK's Arcadia, Princess' Coraland Island, and Costa's Deliziosa and Luminosa.
