Default Costa Luminosa

We are currently thinking about booking on Costa Luminosa as it is a new ship. Has anyone had any experience with this ship. Any comments or advice is appreciated. We will be taking the Sweden, Russia, etc. cruise. Thanks

Dear slhall,
Costa Luminosa is currently under construction at Fincantieri Marghera shipyard. On 5th June it will be launched in Genoa port of Ponte Andrea Doria at the same time that Costa Pacifica, sister ship of Costa Concordia and Costa Serena
So, nobody has any experiencie with this ship.

I supose you are taking Baltic capitals cruise, isn't it? It's a wonderful cruise I'm sure you'll like.

I'm taking Fiords and Cap North with the same ship on 24th July.

Best regards from Spain.

I realize it's very very late to respond, but.... For the future cruise goers this should help at least a little. Pretty much to piggyback on Paul Motter's "Summing up" . My wife went on to this cruiseline, not me don't ask how come I am ending up writing the review haha.
We've been on Carnaval and royal Caribbean lines and according to her this one was the worst of all three.
Entertainment was alright, but the food was nothing like we are used to in US. She said they did not have lamb chops for breakfast but herring every single day. When she saw herring at home when she came back she almost threw something heavy at me
Anyway as far as getting you where you going it did it's job, but c'mon that's not all you expect from a cruise. If you are FOB no matter where from you'll probably love it (doubt you can afford it though) but if you lived at least few years in US, just don't do it. And research! If my wife would of read Paul's review she hopefully would of though twice before going. Well, I am glad I didn't go.
