Costa Luminosa Review
About This Ship
Cabins: With the largest percentage of balcony cabins on any Costa ship (772 of 1,130 total), accommodations generally follow the outline of recently introduced fleet mates. Every cabin has adequate closet and drawer/shelf storage, as well as bathroom shelves; suites have generous walk-in closets and come with a pillow menu and robe and slippers to use during the cruise. Connecting staterooms are somewhat scarce, but can be found in ocean-view categories. Light-wood cabinetry, soft pastel decor, mirrored accents, Murano-glass lighting fixtures, and a small seating area are typical in all categories; all accommodations have a small refrigerator, personal safe, and hair dryer. Samsara Spa accommodations (52 cabins and 4 suites) have direct access to the spa via private elevator and stairway.
Bathrooms: Bathroom extras include shampoo and bath gel in shower-mounted dispensers. Suites and Grand suites have whirlpool bathtubs and upgraded toiletries.
Accessibility: Twenty-three staterooms are designed for wheelchair accessibility.
