Ports of Call
Your trajectory will take you to Catalina Island, a destination exclusive to Costa Cruises with a phenomenal beachfront, perfect for languid lazing on the soft sand with panoramic ocean views. In Tortola, brilliant verdure and burbling fountains make for a calming stroll through J.R. O'Neal's Botanic Gardens and a quick look at the various types of vegetation that grow elsewhere on the island. Stare, mouth agape, at the distinct skyline of St. John's, Antigua, made notable by the dizzying height of St. John's Cathedral's pristine white baroque towers. Traipse through Napoleon's bride Josephine's birthplace in Fort de France, where French undertones permeate the effervescent Caribbean flair, imagine yourself amid the heat of a 17th century French battle with a tour of Fort St. Louis.
Be first off the ship in Pointe-a-Pitre to get the most out of a lively market experience, peruse local wares as you meander through town towards Place de la Victoire for a rest beneath the shade of luscious palms. On an island half entrenched in romantic French traditions and rich Dutch elegance, Philipsburg, St. Maarten is a vibrant mix of cultures you won't often find so closely knit together in a tropical setting. Concluding your sail in La Romana, you'll find old Hollywood glamour interspersed with medieval splendour in Altos de Chavon, a reconstruction of an old world European village conceived by Roberto Copa, a Paramount Pictures set designer.
Amenities & Entertainment
Let your pre-travel stress tumble by the wayside with included airfare and transfers that will whisk you directly from the airport to your ship. The scintillating Costa Luminosa has rendered cruising into high art, with finely designed gleaming glass chandeliers and structures, to sumptuous furnishings that will certainly throw a regal bounce into your step as you wander inside the ship. The thrum of heart pounding exhilaration will fill your ears as you zoom through racetracks in the Grand Prix Simulator, or enjoy a leisurely soak in one of four Jacuzzi's for a less accelerated form of rejuvenation. Find lavish live performances every evening in the Phoenix Theatre, or create your own drama with the luck of the draw in the casino on board. Stunning and elaborate artworks can also be found all around the ship, from astonishing paintings to intriguing sculptures.
Food & Drink
Fine palate-tempting cuisine can be found in all four restaurants on board your impressive ship. A whirlwind of sublime culinary creations will adorn your table in the Taurus Restaurant, an exquisitely decorated dining room that spills out onto two decks. Find a legion of scrumptious dishes and choose to try them all in a more casual atmosphere at the Andromeda Restaurant Buffet. Eleven bars will keep all types of libations close at hand, whether you're hankering for the dry refinement of a martini or the sweet twang of a Tequila Sunrise. Mosey over to the Coffee & Chocolate Bar following dinner for a luscious desert and an expertly crafted coffee.
