Costa Luminosa has moved fleets to become Carnival Luminosa. Please see here for her latest sailings and cruise ship information.

Costa Luminosa features a pick of the most exciting innovations introduced on Costa Cruises' ships. This includes the Samsara Spa (one of the largest spas at sea at over 23,000ft²), a central pool area extending over two decks fitted with a retractable magrodome and giant movie screen and a Grand Prix race car driving simulator. In addition, Luminosa has several exclusive innovations introduced for the first time on the Costa fleet, including a golf simulator.

It isn’t just the facilities which make this such a great cruise ship. The interiors are designed by the architect Joe Farcus, offering total comfort and style, with guests able to walk around all of the passenger decks from bow to stern, making for an unforgettable voyage experience.

Ship Facilities


Boasting four restaurants, Costa pride themselves on the delicious cuisine Luminosa offers guests from morning to evening.

The main dining room is Taurus, with its spacious two-deck layout meaning guests never feel crowded during mealtimes. With buffets for breakfast and lunch, the main event is dinner time when diners can sample all sorts of European cuisine, especially authentic Italian dishes.

If you’d rather enjoy a more casual, buffet-style meal time, Ristorante Buffet Andromeda is guaranteed to please. With stations for everything, from pasta to pizza and everything in between, including a fresh salad bar if you’re looking for something a little lighter, you’re sure to be wanting to go back for seconds (and maybe even thirds!)

There are also two speciality restaurants onboard Costa Luminosa. The Luminosa Club Restaurant combines delicious steak and seafood dishes with spectacular views. Alternatively, the Costa favourite Samsara Restaurant makes an appearance, with its tempting offerings of Mediterranean and Pacific fusion dishes.


By night entertainment onboard Costa Luminosa is all about the parties and piazzas. Choose from Piano Bar, jazz, classical, latin or ballroom dancing as you groove the night away. In addition, there are cocktail parties indoors and deck parties outdoors, meaning the night is long and full of surprises onboard this impressive ship.

Things to do

No expense has been spared when it comes to the spa and fitness facilities onboard Costa Luminosa. A highlight is the Samsara Spa & steam room where guests can sit back and let experienced professionals pamper away their stress with a range of luxurious treatments. When you’re not relaxing, why not get involved in one of the sports available on the ship? Featuring a gym, a multisports court and two swimming pools, there are no end of ways to get active.

However, even if you’re not sporty, there are plenty of ways to get stuck into life on a cruise. Other popular spots on Costa Luminosa include the 4D cinema, a putting green and golf simulator and even a Grand Prix Simulator.
