About Carnival Cruise Line
The Carnival Corporation is the largest cruise company in the world and operates several different brands. The cruise line ‘Carnival Cruise Lines’ has the largest fleet in the group with 24 vessels. The fleet sails almost exclusively in the seas of North America and the Caribbean. For Carnival Cruise Lines the guest's experience of the ships is at least as important as the visited destinations. The concept is comparable to a club holiday and convinces an active, mostly younger audience. The ships offer a colorful world of experience including high-quality food, award-winning entertainment and excellent child and youth care. On board you will find mostly Americans.
With the Carnival Luminosa, a new type of ship was created, with a lot of luxury, a lot of space, many possibilities and especially a lot of relaxation and wellness. The ship is entirely dedicated to the play of light and is characterized by crystal clear and colorful luminosity. Carnival Cruise Line has taken over the Luminosa from Costa Cruises.

Atmosphere on Board
On Carnival ships it is almost impossible not to feel well entertained. But that doesn't mean travellers have to be afraid of being forcibly entertained: There is plenty of room for rest and relaxation. The dress code reflects this concept. Dress is casual during the day and festive in the evening in the main restaurant. In the buffet restaurant there is always something delicious to eat, even without a dress code. Guests come from all over the world, but most travellers are from the USA and Canada. For this reason, guests who have at least a basic knowledge of English feel most at home on board.
Food and Beverages
At meal times, guests may choose from a variety of buffets or dine at the restaurant with friendly service. For dinner, the main restaurant offers two sessions or an open table time. For a fee, there are two specialty restaurants on board. At the Steakhouse, guests can enjoy succulent steaks, delicious fillets and fresh salads, while Bonsai Sushi offers Asian delights. There is also a free 24-hour room service which will bring you some small treats to the cabin.
Entertainment, Sports and Relaxation
Whether theatre over 3 decks, casino, discotheque, GrandBar with dance floor, golf simulator, outdoor putting green, pool deck with retractable glass roof or giant cinema screen - the Carnival Luminosa offers guests a varied entertainment programme. There are a total of 12 different bars on board, including the Cigar Lounge for stylish tobacco enjoyment and the Coffee & Chocolate Bar for those with a sweet tooth.
The Cloud9 Spa, a wellness area covering 3,500 m² and two decks, offers a fitness centre, thermal bath, thalassotherapy pool, various rooms for treatments, sauna and Turkish steam bath, solarium, four whirlpools and three swimming pools (one with a retractable glass roof). For those who want to be active, the multi-purpose sports field or the roller skating rink are the right place to be.
The Carnival Luminosa impressively shows what is possible on cruise ships today. Here, the ship itself is already an important destination. There is so much to experience here that a single holiday is hardly enough. If you like fun, variety and a colourful programme, then the Carnival Luminosa will certainly inspire you!
